Karl Marx was right. The workers do control the means of production; 1. Successful companies are different from the competition, and difference comes from the way people think rather than what companies make. In the new world, it’s talent that makes the capital dance. Business as usual is uninspired and that’s no longer. Business as usual is uninspired and that’s jknas longer good enough; talent doesn’t want to work there; customers don’t want to buy there.

Funky Business: Talent Makes Capital Dance by Jonas Ridderstråle
It is great to see how excited the authors are about this whole World Wide Web thing: Mar 12, Bogdan rated it liked it Shelves: This book is not taking any step riddertrale from the line of “management and business” books promoted in US.
It is just a mix of known facts, but presented systemically, lots of quotes and “evidence” supporting one main idea. I cannot busindss I totally agree their argumentation, but perhaps it is just the riederstrale that I come from a different culture. Indeed the world has changed in the last years dramati This book is not taking any step forward from the line of “management and business” books promoted in US.
Indeed the world has changed in the last years dramatically, and this has influenced everything in our lives. And the sparkle that triggered this change was the protestant revolution, fueling it even up to our days. I am part of a more traditionalist society and I do not subscribe totally to some of the trends they believe will shape in the near future the life and work place.
Overall, an interesting book, that should not be read as if it holds the absolute truth. My copy of this book is in Romanian. Mar 03, Alexandra rated it did not like it Shelves: Left this one somewhere riderstrale through and am not planning on going back. Either it was my translation, or Apr 02, Kiersten rated it it was ok. Started it, didn’t finish it–couldn’t get into it. Dec 28, Bryce rated it liked it. This book is about the riddertsrale of business. The book was written in so is a little outdated however the principles in the book still apply to the real world today.
Oct 28, Ricderstrale rated it it was ok. I may be a bit too hush gunky the book is, in many ways, like reading one of those believe in yourself cheap psychology buziness. Nevertheless it makes some gidderstrale points, though do not expect an eye-opener. The problem for me, maybe was that I expected much more due to the hype around the book and the authors – it was a bit of a let down.
Apr 03, Serge rated it liked it. Feb 23, Joe Raimondo added it. I saw Nordstrom speak at a conference — very insightful. Everyone needs to create temporary monopolies. Aug 03, Natasa Tovornik rated it it was amazing Shelves: I guess it is true what the authors write at the beginning – this book is not gonna tell you what to think, it is going to make you think.
A classic to star thinking differently. Jun 02, Alberto rated it it was amazing. It’s ubsiness great book for entrepreneurs, but you must consider the context it was written at before the whole dot-com boomso it’s outdated but the core idea is valid and enthusiastic.
Jan 22, Matthew Poyiadgi rated it it was amazing. This is the best book I read in – hugley inspirational and a pleasure to read.
Aug 07, Tania rated it it was ok. Jul 08, Nathalie Zivkovic rated it did not like it. There is no thought. A lot of provocative name dropping for the sake of name dropping, very “funky” way of telling History.
On the back cover of the book: It is just too small for effective exploitation and too big for energetic experimentation”. They are confusing wishful thinking and the reality. This is not research. For instance, Banks will never work like startups.
After this financial crisis, we see they are still there thanks to taxpayers’ money and behave bureaucratically. Everyone who works for a big company is in a bureaucracy. French mothers might be the most rigid mothers concerning meals. Moreover, if it were true, Tripp trapp would have disappeared. Some 15 years after publishing this book, it seems tripp trapp still sells well, whereas this book doesn’t. Very good scientific research!
This book is full of preremptory statements that are just the opinions of authors very fond of globalisation and new trends. It’s a neomaniac book that hasn’t passed the test of time.
After a hundred pages, I just stopped because I felt insulted. They really take the reader for an idiot I was skimming the book rather than reading it. I find it overly exalting, lacking consistence and outdated. Given the title, I expected a content related to business which could have been interesting despite the period it was writtenbut the book is depicting that period, over-using the word “funky”. Only the examples of business which adapted to changes happening back then are backing up the idea that for thriving in business you need to embrace changes and to adapt rapidly to those changes I was skimming the book rather than reading it.

Oct 17, Irisha Starodubtseva rated it really liked it. Though the book was written more than 20 years ago, it is still relevant to modern economy. The possible reason for that is the fact that it deals with philosophical questions much more than with practical ones and has a special poignant language.
There was no plot whatsoever and nothing revolutionary, but a bit of funny revelations Jul 10, Hermano rated it really liked it. Great read, I wish I had read this book 17 years ago. These guys were dead on as to what was going to happen in the business world. I saw them speak at a conference in Toronto years ago, and they are funny live.
Dec 18, Narek Manukyan rated it it was ok. Mar 11, Dasha Vakhina rated it liked it. First I read this book in the first year of the business school and was excited about the new for me corporate world and business future.
