My favourite books 12: Further Up the OrganisationPosted: May 31, 2011
Up The Organization by Robert Townsend, published 1970; this edition, Coronet 1985
Back to work, so a hurrah for one of my favourite business books. Townsend turned Avis into the “We Try Harder” brand before becoming a successful business author. Although the bones of this book are 40 years old, it’s still all about people, so it’s as relevant today as ever.
