First, Break All The Rules (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 393

First Break All the Rules illustrates, with statistics, what it is that makes a manager tick. Is it his ability to identify the right people, to focus on skills and experience or is it his motivating ability? The book reveals the secret and breaks a few myths in the bargain.

Summary of First Break All the Rules

First Break All the Rules is considered to be a book that broke quite a few dearly held notions of management gurus. In the book, the authors Marcus Buckingham and Curt Coffman set forward a new philosophy for managers based on the 80,000 interviews they conducted over a course of 25 years as management consultants for Gallup.

The book is replete with statistics, diagrams, interview excerpts and case studies. Their conclusions are overwhelmingly different as compared to popular notions.

Should a good manager be able to identify good talent?

Or should a good manager be able to groom talent?

What prevents employee attrition – better pay or better management?

These are some of the questions that are raised and cleared through the course of this book. It also debunks the popular notion that all employees be treated the same. Instead, it emphasizes the importance of having talented employees and knowing how to effectively use their skills for the benefit of the company. The book reiterates the virtues of discipline even as it says that rules have to broken to ensure that the company moves forward.

Published in 1999, the book was a New York Times bestseller.

It is a really nice book which provides a way to concieve of things that are practical and unusual to think

The book reached before my expectation and I was delighted.

And I started reading..

The book is really a VALUE for money one... It contains anecdotes of real research and theses. It gives the reader a way to think unusually and understand the crucial and pivotal role of the HR function. Unless one reads something of this sort one will not be able to appreciate the importance of humans.
Being a student of MBA-HR i recommend this book all students aspiring or pursuing HR to get a practical viewpoint.

A LANDMARK ACHIEVEMENT

This book was recommended to me by one of my colleagues. I usually don't read management or self help books as I find them boring but this one read like a novel and I could relate to several instances and situations which I face everyday in corporate world.

Probably the best management book written so far. Its based on market research conducted by Gallup over a span of many years.

The results are outstanding and help to break many conventional ground rules followed by Management across many companies.

The outcomes of each endeavour be it employee retention, talent acquisition, promotion, wo
