2.0 von 5 Sternen ExtremeOberflächlichkeit 3. März 2013
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Selten habe ich mich über ein Buch so geärgert wie über dieses. Es ist der Beweis dafür, dass der Absatz von Sachbüchern stark von Aufmachung, Titel und Klappentext getrieben ist - auch ich bin auf dieses Marketing hereingefallen.

Erwartet hatte ich einen umfassenden Ansatz dazu, wie ich meine Produktivität im Job steigern könnte. Lesen musste ich eine Sammlung von Allerweltsweisheiten, die jedem Berufstätigen nach ein paar Jahren im Job auch schon klar geworden sind.

An wen richtet sich dieses Buch? Nicht an Berufsanfänger, dafür schreibt Pozenzu sehr aus der Sicht des CEOs, der gleichzeitig eine Harvard-Professur inne hat. Aber eben auch nicht an Spitzenmanager, dafür sind die Inhalte zu banal.

Dennoch haben mich ausgewählte Kapitel zu der einen oder anderen Idee inspiriert, wie ich z.B. laufende Aufgaben besser auf meine Ziele ausgerichtet priorisieren kann. Die Ausbeute ist aber so mager, dass ich das Buch nicht empfehlen kann.

Sehr praktisch und einfach erklärt der Autor die allgemeine Wahrheiten, die keinen Mensch im alltäglichen leben Merkt.

1.0 von 5 Sternen some good stuff, but mostly trivial and highly US-centric 26. Dezember 2012
Von Michael V - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
The majority of this book would be somewhere between boring and simplistic to any experienced manager. Much of it is about the author's personal preferences for breakfast, aeroplane seating, wardrobe, etc, which he appears to think are worth knowing about and even following. He has indeed accomplished a lot in his career, but the book is advertised as advice, not biography, and the details about his life quickly become tedious. Most of the content could be conveyed simply through the summary points at the end of each chapter -- readers could dramatically improve their own productivity by skipping the rest of the book. People interested in setting goals and finding ways to meet them would be much better off reading Clayton Christensen's book "How will you measure your life". Readers outside the US will find substantial portions of the author's advice irrelevant; readers who have evidence-based knowledge about topics such as jet lag will realise that some of the advice is just plain wrong.

That being said, the chapters on reading, writing, speaking, and holding meetings were good reminders about how important it is to do these things well and how often they are done badly. Unfortunately those chapters are unlikely to resonate with the young and inexperienced readers who might find the rest of the book useful and even interesting.

Pozen says many times in the book that one way to be more productive is to give only a "B+" effort to low-value tasks. He apparently applied that advice to writing this book, but I would rate it a "C-".

2.0 von 5 Sternen Hardly Extreme... 21. Dezember 2012
Von David H - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I consider myself a highly productive person, but I have always wondered about the secrets of those rare individuals who seem inhumanly prolific. The book jacket sets up this promise by describing the author as teaching a "full course load at Harvard Business School while serving as the full-time chairman of a global financial-services firm...written six books...hundreds of articles...raised a family...." Imagine my surprise when the one example the author gives for a typical calendar day includes almost none of these activities, but rather is typical white collar day that begins at 8:30 a.m., includes some ordinary-sounding meetings and some mid-morning exercise, and ends around 6 p.m. These examples don't suggest any "extreme" productivity or any apparent reduction in typical working hours as suggested in the title, unless you are comparing his hours to those of young investment bankers.

Some of the the author's more provocative suggestions (such as mid-day naps) would be very difficult to achieve in some environments, i.e. in a union-based work setting or in open office interior designs. I was hoping to see how the author would adapt his advice to these challenges, but I ultimately felt his key message was to find a different job or try to change the system.

Admittedly, there are some common sense tips and reminders that may be helpful for someone new to the working world, and certainly I have colleagues who could benefit from advice about topics like prioritization and meeting facilitation.

Ultimately, anyone who follows the author's recommendations should be reasonably productive, but it turns out there is no special sauce to "extreme" productivity.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Book for Every Aspiring Leader 8. Oktober 2012
Von Andy Kaufman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
A consistent theme from leaders we work with is "too much to do, not enough time to do it." Bob Pozen has written a book that will benefit every leader. His chapter on prioritizing is like a strategic planning lesson applied to life. His chapters on reading more strategically, writing more effectively, and speaking more confidently are each worth the price of the book if taken to heart and practiced. His insights on habits are a great supplement to what you may have read in Charles Duhigg's book The Power of Habit. And his chapter on work/life balance is powerful, not only because of the wise advice, but also because Bob is an inspiring model of how to live a life of extreme productivity while maintaining strong family relationships.

I had the opportunity to interview Bob on our People and Projects Podcast ([...]) and found him to be one of the most kind, engaging, and generous guests ever. Bob Pozen is the real deal and this book encapsulates powerful lessons that have been tested in the real world. Every aspiring leader needs to read this book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Very Helpful Book with Great Advice for Bosses 25. Oktober 2012
Von Paul A. Salvette - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
With an increasingly interconnected world, we have more access to knowledge and each other than ever before. This has been tremendous in some ways, but it has also had some unintended consequences. It has become more difficult for working professionals to separate their work and home life, and this has caused some damage to the social fabric. Just because you can reach your employees at 10 p.m. on a Saturday does not mean you should be doing so. In Extreme Productivity, Pozen provides excellent practical guidance on how to save time getting tasks accomplished in the workplace during work hours so that professionals can have a healthy work/life balance.

The tips on saving time in meetings, emails, and travel are extremely beneficial for young professionals. The chapter on writing is great, because professional writing has become extremely sloppy with the advent of smartphones. Although, I think the great purpose of this book is the advice to managers on how not to waste your employees time and damage their morale. Pozen goes into extensive detail on the bad habits that certain types of bosses have, even if they are doing so subconsciously. Pozen's book is not bogged down in dull statistics or research. It is written by a man with a life's worth of experience who is seeking to impart some wisdom on younger managers.

I purchased this book because I was having trouble managing time as the director of a small business. The reason I didn't give the book a full 5-star review was because I thought there just wasn't enough for the small businessman, which I was hoping for. This is understandable, because I don't believe Mr. Pozen has operated a small business based on his bio. Pozen talks extensively about dealing with the bureaucracy found in large organizations, which is excellent but that isn't really a factor with small business. Dealing with client expectations and cash flow problems are the huge issues. Pozen advocates spending less time with certain clients, but lack of customer service with anyone can destroy a small business. He also talks about flying business class in order to get a good night's sleep during travel, but, again, this would not be practical for small businesses. Although the book is more designed for people working in the corporate world, it still has lots of practical tips and tricks no matter where you are working.

If you are a manager in any type of large organization, stop wasting your team's time and improve their morale by following Pozen's tips. Extreme Productivity is an enjoyable read that is very helpful to any manager's professional development.

1.0 von 5 Sternen What a disappointment......... 29. November 2012
Von Mark Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This book was way too basic. It's characterized as filled with new, progressive ideas and falls quite short of the mark.

Good for high school graduates at best.
