This is one rare book. How do you improve your business practices, no matter the sector you occupy? Not only does the author give specific insights about how to course correct, even mission correct, to improve your financial bottom line, but he also implicitly leads you to become a better reader of people’s needs, a better person for your clients and your employees. In short, a better person overall. If that sounds too “pie-in-the-sky” for you, just keep doing what you are doing. Otherwise, discover the value of synthesizing what Brandt has learned and apply it to the concerns and trouble spots in your own company. By the way, he has your research work cut out for you.
Frankly, it is refreshing to hear from someone who offers immediately practical advice often couched in the redemptive power of humor. Putting yourself in the position of your employees and clients in the ever-evolving marketplace is key to motivating workers and keeping loyal customers so all of you can succeed. If you can also smile and laugh as you learn and change, so much the better.
FYI, I purchased this book. My own business background is healthcare, management consulting, environmental consulting, education, and retail. “Nincompoopery” is a book about being smarter, more astute in the rapidly shifting field of business delivery, and—in the bargain—helping to create a business culture and ethic that keeps you ahead of others by respecting and responding to “the human factor” as well as your own financials. Your company will grow. Your clients will grow. You will grow as a person. It's an invigorating read.
