Books - Hot Groups
"I haven't a question in my mind that 'Hot Groups' will be the most important management book of 99... It is wonderfully original. It is uncannily timely. It is gorgeously written. It is practical. It is very wise and authoritative."
- Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor,
"Captures the attributes of intense, task dominated teams that energize both individual and organizational effectiveness in doing what hasn't been done before."
- Edward C. Stone, Director,
"Jean Lipman-Blumen and Hal Leavitt take the reader into the world of "hot groups," a world they know so well but which remains elusive to most of us. Lipman-Blumen and Leavitt dissect the inner workings of "hot groups" with their boundless energy, creativity, and crystal clear sense of mission. This book will drive most readers to search for their own "hot group" experience, whether it's to be found in their work, community, or family. An extraordinary relevant book for our dynamic but chaotic times."
- Robert C. Fisher,
"'Hot Groups' makes a passionate case for injecting strategic disorder into disciplined organizations. Packed with information, it is clearly written, superbly organized, and entirely original. Anyone who has an interest in fostering quick and real organizational change to confront a rapidly transforming world will want to read it and refer to it."
- Barry Munitz, President,
