The Intrapreneur

de Gib Bulloch (éd. de 2018)

Quatrième de couverture

Today, over half of the largest economies in the world are global businesses - controlled by the few, and impacting the many. Business clearly has the power to change the world – but what if we, as individuals, had the power to change the world of business? For over a decade, Gib Bulloch led a corporate “guerrilla movement” within one of the world’s largest global consulting organisations. Against the odds, he created a not-for-profit inside one of the most profit driven corporations in the world. Plaudits, prizes and promotions followed. But success came at a price: It ultimately cost him his job, his health and perhaps even his sanity as he found himself the unlikely resident of a psychiatric hospital in Glasgow. The Intrapreneur is an honest and insightful critique of the “craziness” of today’s business environment – and a call to action for a new breed of social activist working within, about to join or completely disillusioned by today’s business world. Finding your purpose… can feel like losing your mind — Praise for The Intrapreneur: ‘An inspiring personal account of how purpose and well-being can transform the business world.’ Arianna Huffington ‘A story of courage, determination and persistence, told with a com- bination of wit, pathos and refreshing honesty’ Paul Polman, CEO Unilever ‘It’s refreshing to see business leaders like Gib Bulloch break the taboo surrounding mental health in the workplace by speaking up, openly and honestly, about their personal experiences.’ Alastair Campbell, writer and broadcaster

Mon commentaire

Dans cette autobiographie, l'auteur décrit le lancement et la croissance d'une initiative interne, au sein du gigantesque cabinet Accenture, ayant pour objectif d'aider à résoudre des problèmes des pays en développement. Armé d'un nouveau business modèle, car les ONG ne peuvent généralement pas se payer des consultants à ce prix, ce programme a du affronter à de nombreuses reprises le "système immunitaire de l'entreprise" avant de connaître un succès retentissant. J'aurais aimé plus de détails mais ça reste un livre porteur d'espoir !
