Review quote

In today's world, technical excellence is no longer enough to succeed. Whether you work in IT or any other part of your organisation, knowing what makes people tick is essential. This book does an excellent job of describing how people work together and what motivates them in practical ways that can be put to work immediately. -- Donald H Taylor Learning and Performance Institute This book provides a practical insight into the complex interfaces and relationships between people, technology, and the changing business landscape. It is a useful guide for managers and employers alike because without the 'human touch' nothing is possible in the world of work -- Ann Brown Capgemini
