Rate this:
From Microsoft's former Chief Xbox Officer, Robbie Bach, comes a unique book that provides a simple yet robust framework that can be used to tackle almost any problem. In Xbox Revisited: A Game Plan for Corporate and Civic Renewal, Bach takes business, non-profit, and community-engaged readers on the Xbox journey-a triumphant and personal saga from garage-shop beginnings to business success. Using the 3P Framework of Purpose, Principles, and Priorities developed by the Xbox team, Bach describes the process used to revitalize a beleaguered business and then applies those lessons to our most difficult community issues and the challenges of a nation at a crossroads. Bach is turning his strategic and leadership skills to a new opportunity: helping individuals and organizations drive transformational change in business and civic institutions. The book is packed with common sense thinking and a strategic framework that can set change in motion at every level of community life. Xbox Revisited is a wake-up call, a challenge to every citizen to become a "civic engineer" addressing the issues we face in our communities and across our country.

[Prior to reading this, would recommend reading The New Prophets of Capital, by Nicole Aschoff.]
OK, I have yet to read this book, but I despise disingenuous people. This book mentions or takes advantage of 9/11, but does it mention that Microsoft, still under BillG at the time, took further advantage by having an unscheduled layoff of around 1,000 workers on 9/12/01?
Does the author, while prattling about civic engineering, discuss the Gates Foundation support of GMOs [while being invested in Monsanto, of course] throughout the planet; their promotion of the privatization of education through charter schools, et cetera, and their Rogues Gallery on various boards at their foundation, e.g., Rajat Gupta, convicted of insider trading, Ernesto Zedillo, whom the Mexican government attempted to extradite for his slaughter of the Zapatistas, and then there's Philip Zelikow which, speaking of 9/11, a number of the surviving family members of 9/11 had some very nasty things to say about?
