Recommendation

Andrew Benett, president of Havas Worldwide, accurately targets and discusses the latest trends in organizational development and employment. While perhaps more thorough than original, Benett helpfully explains that modern companies need talented employees, employees need digital skills, firms need positive cultures, and so on. If the book has a godfather, he is the frequently cited John Sculley, the former Apple CEO.

  • What contributions talented people make; and
  • How firms are restructuring to attract, nurture and hold talent.
