Both Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg came to Google as seasoned Silicon Valley business executives, but over the course of a decade they came to see the wisdom in Coach John Wooden's observation that 'it's what you learn after you know it all that counts'. As they helped grow Google from a young start-up to a global icon, they relearned everything they knew about management.

Recommended to any business manager or individual contributor for a contrarian view of many commonly held sacred cows.

While specific to one organisation many of the ideas have universal application.

Is this the dawn of a new economy driven by smart creative individuals acting in small teams or a transition phase before a new world order of MNCs takes control, read for yourself.
