Mckinsey Mind by Ethan Rasiel & Paul Friga

I have been in corporate for around 6 years. Have attended lot of trainings on Problem Solving

And used to think that Business problems are really complicated, and we need tools like Six Sigma to solve it.

But, after reading this book, I came to understand that how easy it is, provided we follow the systematic approach with rigour. Although approach is more of common sense, but systematic and rigour are the key differentiators

Balanced Scorecard by Robert Kaplan & David Norton

I was constantly fascinated by the article written by Robert Kaplan & David Norton 'Balanced Score Card' and its sequel 'Strategy Maps'

I used to think that article is more than enough. But, when I actually read this book, came to understand the book is much more than the article.

It illustrates the Dashboard approach of Balance between Long term and Short Term strategic metrics, for a business.

I recommend this book to all the Top Management of Corporates
