Book 47 of Year 2017 – “Time, Talent, Energy” by Michael C. Mankins and Eric Garton

Official Title – Time, Talent, Energy: Overcome Organizational Drag and Unleash Your Team’s Productive Power

Genre – Non Fiction

Book Length – 256 pages

Reading Time – 6 hours

Style/ Plot – This book focused on helping organisations/businesses/leaders manage time, talent and resources with the same care applied to managing financial capital.

There are a number of practical advices given. My attention was drawn to the ‘3 ways to simplify your operating model’. I read that part repeatedly as it brings to light the complexity involved in making simple decisions.

The writers also made a point of demonstrating how assembling the right people for a task yields more output and productivity than just merely putting random people together.

Favourite Quote – “The real challenge isn’t to restructure existing units; it’s to identify the minimum number of units required to accomplish the essential work of the company.

Rating – 3.5/5
