    ePUB Dan Lyons Å ePUB Lab Rats MOBI à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk rats download, Lab Rats EpubThis is a important business book than most people realize In its pages Dan Lyons take apart the conventional wisdom of Milton Friedman's burn out and churn out style of shareholder based business and shows why the model is completely non sustainableIf you've wondered why you're feeling less valued at work it's because you are When human beings are treated like copy paper human resources it's easy to pretend we don't matter Yet we provide the work that turns the wheels of business and in turn profits to shareholdersThe book's not all bad news; Lyons also profiles some businesses including some venture capitalists who are interested in stakeholders than shareholders and as a result setting Friedman's style on its ear Businesses based on a social enterprise model do well for themselves their employees and ultimately their shareholdersThis is all accomplished in a lively entertaining and at times maddening little book that will open your eyes and make you rethink how you treat your sta

    ePUB Dan Lyons Å ePUB Lab Rats MOBI à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk rats download, Lab Rats EpubThe author is a writer and business journalist He wrote a book Disrupted two years ago which chronicled his time spent with an Internet startup he joined after being laid off at Newsweek I enjoyed the book and thought it an insightful and humorous memoir of changes in the workplace in light of the spread of the Internet economy There are of course lots of these books around but Lyons provided a look at a much hyped development as someone who both knew how to write and who was familiar with older styles of workplace management My major issue with the book had been sorting out the general aspects of what Mr Lyons was reporting from the particular aspects of his experience as a participant in his own storyAfter reading his new book I should not have worried about thatLab Rats is an extended reflection on the deterioration of the workplace in recent years based on reactions to Lyons’ first book His premise this time around is that life at work has been getting much worse fo

    ePUB Dan Lyons Å ePUB Lab Rats MOBI à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk rats download, Lab Rats EpubI almost gave up on this one halfway through but I'm glad I stuck around for the much stronger concluding section If you are not already familiar with the problems of modern work long hours unreasonable expectations lack of benefits job insecurity the 1099gig economy surveillance etc and their origins mainly Silicon Valley it serves as a good primer with some exceptions I could not follow the author's wistful and uncritical admiration of companies like Ford which have their own records of abuse against employeesT

    ePUB Dan Lyons Å ePUB Lab Rats MOBI à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk rats download, Lab Rats EpubKinda depressing You already knew it happened out there in the real technology and startup world but still reading about it was uneasyAbout the book I would rate it somewhere between 3 and 4 I was hesitant for a while but then put 4 for it My problem with it and the way author Dan Lyons expressed his ideas was there was so much negative energy Looked like the aut

    ePUB Dan Lyons Å ePUB Lab Rats MOBI à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk rats download, Lab Rats EpubTo be sure a phrase that introduces many paragraphs in this book I never expected Dan Lyons’ latest to be as good as “Disrupted” — which was based on first person stories and devastating humor and satire This book is of a research project with hyperbolic claims made about the impact of certain blog posts published opinion pieces and Powerpoint presen

    ePUB Dan Lyons Å ePUB Lab Rats MOBI à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk rats download, Lab Rats EpubI thoroughly enjoyed this book by Lyons He used to work for Newsweek but tried to work for a tech company when he was retrenched There was so much positive feedback from people for his first book Disrupted that he realised his experience is not uniue Why are we lab rats of Silicon Valley? Lyons laid out the villains1 Frederick Taylor who proposed scientific management So he timed every action in the pig iron factory Unfortunately the story is a fraud a fabrication So workers become a process that are ‘managed’2 Milton Friedman who said that the duty of a corporation is only to maximise shareholder profit 3 The internetAdding all 3 together profit is most important and workers should be treated as badly as possible to minimise cost an

    ePUB Dan Lyons Å ePUB Lab Rats MOBI à Å babyandbeyondshow.co.uk rats download, Lab Rats EpubI was not a fan of Disrupted but Lab Rats really impressed me Lyons uses concise accessible language to describe complex concepts without straying into oversimplification territory I particularly liked his four point summary in the introduction; it frames the rest of the book beautifully and helps the reader keep all the details straight The way he observes that Silicon Valley is interested in what works for machines than in what works for humans is especially apt and that comparison helps explain why management styles of today prioritize efficiency over employee retention making us all miserable for no good reasonThe only criticism I have is the way Lyons paints the 1980's tech scene with rose coloured nostalgia Visions of tech CEOs lounging casually in hot tubs drinking and making deals might seem ideal to some but Lyons era
