Thinking about an engineering leadership book review/summary series. Start from the Unicorn Project and work out, in the order I encountered them, pretty much. Most of the management books I’ve read have a very small core that can be compactly summarised. Not to say they’re overwritten - often if the ideas are unintuitive, you might need motivating examples or in-depth explanation, or examination from different perspectives - but understanding that there is a common core, a shared philosophy between several lines of thought across separate disciplines that doesn’t so much go against Taylorist or McKinseyite management theory as completely upend it and show it for the inhuman and inhumane practice that it is, does not require a full exposition.
