MBA In A Box is a collection of essays written by business experts. The concepts and terminology frequently assume you are already reasonably familiar with business concepts.

For example, one of my favorite essays in the book is a republication of a Harvard Business School article (mid 90's) on the failure of Strategic Planning as it has been taught to generations of business school grads (especially MBAs). Terrific article, but it would really help to already be exposed to Strategic Planning (flawed as it is). This article helps with MBA background more than some of the others, but is still a critique of an MBA topic as opposed to a introduction.

Since I got the book wanting a survey of MBA knowledge, I have some disappointment with it. I definitely learned from it, but having a controversial genius like Milken do the chapter on Capitilizing a Corporation was over my head in several places. The Finance and Accounting chapter was more of what I expected, as it described the traditional role and current firestorm around the role of the CPA - educational and up to date.

If you are a seasoned business person, the book may be interesting to you as a light collection of essays from illuminated business minds. I am not quite that far along, but I gained from reading the book and may read it again one day. I've deducted from the rating of these quality essays because the title is so misleading - an obvious ploy to grab attention irrespective of the content. The ploy worked on me and I'm a little better for it, but it is still a cheap ploy.

For MBA beginners-surveyors like me I recommend The Complete Idiot's Guide to MBA Basics. It's a very basic, yet useful, intro.

I acquired this book as a referesher subsequent to completing my MBA program. It is a suprising disappointment, and I do NOT believe it is an "MBA in a BOX" by any stretch of the imagination. I am somewhat reluctant and uncomfortable to speak negatively about any book I have read, and I have read plenty of books and review a fraction of them on Amazon.com. Nevertheless, I have a sense of obligation to tell people that this book will most-likely not provide them the information they are perhaps looking for in terms of MBA material. To try to be perhaps fair, I am going to highlight some important aspects in this book.

Innovation

--

The concept, from Clayton M. Christensen's THE INNOVATOR'S DILEMMA, "that companies fail not because managers are dumb but because the system doesn't allow them to succeed" is very important as it touches on empowerment, organizational learning, and team building (and learning).

Strategy

--

Yes, I agree that strategic thinking involves intuition and creativity. I am very happy that the balanced scorecard was covered in this book, which is an excellent tool for organizations to measure performance.

Management

--

Encourage entrepreneurial behavior and thinking. Ensure your team is actually empowered to make decisions, take action. Otherwise, how can you possibly encourage entrepreneurial behavior and thinking in an organization?

Human Resources

--

The importance of retaining and motivating the "knowledge worker" is covered, which is a concept from Peter Drucker. Organizations must appreciate, recognize, and understand a knowledge worker's extensive knowledge. Further, an organization must also provide opportunities for the knowledge worker to expand her/his knowledge, thereby adding value for the organization.

Marketing

--

I enjoyed reading about customer relationships management (CRP), allowing the customer to frame and shape the relationship between the organization and her/himself.

CONCLUSION

--

As I mentioned, this book did not meet my expectations and was somewhat disappointing. I think the title is not appropriate and perhaps even misleading. Nevertheless, if you want to obtain some highlights on certain subjects and prominent business personalities, this book can be useful.
It's not a terrible book and in fact many of the contributing essays are pretty interesting ( I love Michael Milken's contribution). It's just the structure of the book that's trying to be too much to too many people. It's more like reading a newspaper that has articles that are a bit longer than normal. As I reached the end of the book, I felt like I picked up a few good pointers to use in my business but was it worth the 3-4 hours to read?? Probably not.
