What is the best business related book you have read in the past few years?
So far, for me, it has to be Startup Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle. Dan Senor and Saul Singer explore why Israel, a tiny country by many measures, has been on over a decade long tear of creating companies. Don’t feel like starting a company? No problem. For me, the major takeaways were more about the societal, cultural, and psychological markings that make the country determined, if not hell bent, on wanting to create value through starting businesses.
Businesses who are undergoing a disruptive change, like those in media, need to find the people already within or just outside the door of their organizations that can bring the same chutzpah to the table. The stories share as much cultural, leadership, and managerial advice as that of launching a start-up.
