April’s Fast Company

There is a lot of good stuff in April’s FC.

The highlights for me:

  • Jeff Immelt’s leadership tips sharing the front cover with the Faces of Outsourcing.
  • Jena McGregor does a piece on business and blogging. A lot of the normal observations and conclusions, but some new stories of how businesses are using blogs.
  • Jim Collins proposes a business equivalent to The Fellowship of the Rings. It is the story of IBM told in The Maverick and His Machine, Father, Son, & Company, and Who Says Elephants Can’t Dance.

I also noticed Amazon had a special sale on the hardcover of Elephants Can’t Dance. It’s $6.99 and they say quantities are limited.
