Many articles are 20-30 years old yet still prove just as relevant today. Refreshing listen that reminds me of the essentials of running a sound business, back to basics at its best.
I listened to a couple of HBR selected texts as part of my MBA and they offer brilliant and accessible insight into key articles from the leading source.
Some interesting articles, some less so. Most irritating was the narrator's inability to pronounce 'competency' which seems to gain an extra 'n' in the middle. So distracting that it made me skip the entire of the final article.
these articles are certainly something that people should know in the business World. However, as an audio book it's a little rough to get through.
