Revisiting some of those favorite reads . . . .

August 20th, 2009

     Found myself wrapping up the day, but not having the necessary amout of time to dive into drafting a full blog posting. I also couldn’t bring myself to spend a significant amount of time on the computer, which seems to have been a non-stop activity. It’s also nice to pull up half a section of couch, kick-up the feet, and enjoy some hardcopy reading.

     Two of my favorite reads are the Harvard Business Review and Strategy+Business. One of the articles that I’ve archived and like to review occassionally is an article titled “The Cat That Came Back” by Gary Neilson and Bruce Pasternack.  The article profiles the corporate reorganization of Caterpillar. Although the company was a $30 Billion entity, it’s a great lesson in how quickly a larger organization can effect change, and ultimately see the benefits of that change in the bottom line results.

The Cat That Came Back

    Hopefully you enjoy the read as much and as often as I have.

Thanks for reading. . . .
