About Josh Kaufman – Josh Kaufman
MBA". По сути дела книга - это своего рода конспект прочитанных книг, который родился в результате самообучения автора :) Но про сами техники этого самообучения - хотелось бы поподробнее... Getting an MBA is an expensive choice - one almost impossible to justify regardless of the state of the economy. Even the elite schools like Harvard and Wharton offer outdated, assembly-line programs that teach you more about PowerPoint presentations and unnecessary financial models than what it takes to run a real business. You can get better results (and save hundreds of thousands of dollars) by skipping business school altogether....
The book has 11 sections (or chapters if you like): Value Creation, Marketing, Sales, Value Delivery, Finance, The Human Mind, Working with Yourself, Working with Others, Understanding Systems, Analyzing Systems and Improving Systems. Each section has 18 to 32 subsections. Unfortunately, his clipped voice and unusual pronunciation made it difficult to concentrate on the otherwise interesting subject matter. Weighing the cost against the return, most MBA graduates agree that earning their MBA was worth it. In a 2022 survey from GMAC, over 85 percent of MBA graduates reported a positive return on investment from their graduate education. A majority found their business school education to be professionally, personally, and financially rewarding (84, 72, and 68 percent, respectively) [ 2].
The 5 Parts of Every Business - The Personal MBA
Everyone on the team must know the Commander's Intent of the project, the Reason Why it's important, and must clearly know the specific parts of the project they're individually responsible for completing-otherwise, you're inviting Bystander Apathy. 3. Treat people with respect. Value-Delivery. Giving your customers what you’ve promised and ensuring they’re satisfied with the transaction. Yes. Plenty of relevant material to educate the business owner (and there staff) with no formal business education.Much has been made in business schools about "scientific management" and the need for highly educated, professionally trained managers. In reality, you can't learn to be a competent manager in a classroom-beyond a few simple principles, it's a skill best learned through experience. I invite the author, Mr. Josh Kaufman, to a debate - a live Facebook feed or whatever format he prefers. If I loose the debate, I will personally buy 100,000 copies of his new book and donate them to Universities or to institutions of his choice. If he loses the debate, he is to correct the mistakes in this book with the help from a community of business leaders who have MBA's. If you want to master the art of business, you don't need to go to business school. You do need to learn the fundamentals of modern business practice:
The Personal MBA - Penguin Books UK
MBA-программах, могу быть не объективен... Но во-первых, "пусть цветёт 1000 цветов" :) ; во-вторых, у программ MBA есть и сильные стороны, которые автор игнорирует; в-третьих, сами программы MBA очень разные - и они тоже меняются по форме и содержанию, чтобы идти в ногу со временем/. Each small section is annoyingly ends with "please share this section" [on social media]. It's so frequent, the author's narcissism is quite frankly hard to tune out. Listening to this book is a personal battle between loving the content and trying to tune out the talker.
Josh quotes Seth Godin in the book saying that dedicated reading of 30 or 40 books combined with real world experience is a better use of money then an MBA. This book is important because it gives you the list of those 30 or 40 books in the right structure and helps avoiding filter bubbles and gaps. Josh Kaufman is an independent business teacher, education activist, and author of The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business.
