    As an intermittent reader of HBR articles as they come out (and as long as I am under the monthly quota of free articles) I quite liked this curatorial selection. Although, as some of the articles were published in 2014, they were not as timely as the title led me to believe. The following articles were of particular interest to me, "The Transparency Trap," "Profits without Prosperity," "The Authenticity Paradox," and "When Senior Managers Won't Collaborate."

Deloitte’s invested 2m hours a year in performance management across its 65,000 employees, leading to a challenge to improve their efficiency and effectiveness in this area. They removed all forms of traditional reviews including the 360 degree performance talk, shifting to a four question model only. Team Leaders would answer two questions on a scale of 1-5; ‘If it was your money, would you pay this person the maximum possible compensation?’ and ‘Would you always want this person on your team?’ and then Yes or No; ‘Is this person being managed for low performance?’ and ‘Would you give this person a promotion?’. Four simple questions that gauged the value, cohesiveness, performance and readiness of an individual. Deloitte’s begun gauging people on what there leaders WOULD DO with their workers, instead of what they THINK of them. For me, this was an interesting article. Managers spend hours upon hours of time preparing for performance talks and then delivering them, with little buy-in, competence or passion or for the process. Organisations need to ask if it’s all smoke and mirrors, or if it truly contributes to the organisation’s changing objectives. Key process objectives should be to identify talent, and remain competitive and timely with remuneration. Other topics discussed included the shift to additive manufacturing (3D Printing) and the impact it will have on traditional manufacturing and construction, the authenticity paradox including the risk that being too authentic can be damaging to oneself, and the change in moving from commodity goods to total value offerings through digitise and IoT integration.

    I found some of the ideas to be fairly interesting, but none of it seemed very insightful. I was hoping that more of the ideas would be applicable to my businesses (hotels and hostels), but these concepts were more geared toward huge organizations and multi national corporations.

    BOY am I glad I work in nonprofit media (though some of the insights were pretty valuable, such as authentic management styles v. "fake it 'til you make it" and how often to check in with direct reports).

    As a book to get from a library to read the articles that interest you, then this book is a 5/5. But if you're going to actually buy this book, then I'd suggest look through the contents to make sure it's what you're looking for. The articles are a little too diverse for my liking, for different audiences with different needs. I personally loved "The Authenticity Paradox" and "The Discipline of Business Experimentation".

The articles are a little too diverse for my liking, for different audiences with different needs. I personally loved "The Authenticity Paradox" and "The Discipline of Business Experimentation". I liked "Outsmart Your Own Biases" but it felt a little too light, especially since I've about many of the ideas presented here in book format. Other articles didn't really do it for me.
