Review Text

"Morrison's dashing and enthusiastic style persuasively makes the case for using good data analytics as the basis for successful organization design. He confidently leads the reader through the process bringing his own experiences as supporting examples of the value of data. It's not all numbers. He doesn't forget the politics and culture stuff at play contending that data helps in working with these aspects of complex organizational design. It's a book now on my 'recommend' list."show more
