While this book does an excellent job in identifying why respect is essential to productive teamwork, it goes much beyond that endeavor in providing critical best practices for optimal management of an enterprise. Very effective processes are provided for optimal team management, financial analysis, and the what, whys , and hows of tackling challenges…under the umbrella of instilling respect even under tense situations. What makes this book even more credible, are the inputs of several CEOs and other experts on these key subjects so the reader can look at real life situations vs just theories. This is a short ,must-read , practical guide for new senior executives, and those experienced execs who need to build more dynamic organizations .
It is refreshing to see someone provide business leaders a highly achievable roadmap to sustained success. Many leaders fail to appreciate that how results are obtained is as important as the fact that you are successful in the first place. On a daily basis, understanding your emotions and how they impact you and your ability to get things done is an overlooked aspect of success. In terms of communication and listening, far to often leaders ask their people to do things that are extremely difficult or to change without conveying the underlying reasons driving the request and listening to the feedback about how it affects the organization. If you understand and follow the RESPECT principles you will find that your team and organization are more united, more motivated and ready to support the challenges that you will confront.
This is an excellent resource for anybody professionally serious about QlikView. The book is well organized and goes deep into subjects like data modeling, U/I optimization, and advanced functions. Where other books delve moderately, this book is unafraid. Oleg, Tammy, and Charlie make sure you understand the business context of their examples, but do not get bogged down with it. The differentiator is their complete and detailed explanations of Qlik functions and methods PLUS why and when they are best used. Of the 5 Qlik books I own, this is definitely, unquestionably the best.
This text follows a clear, logical approach: it begins with the basics and slowly introduces more complicated concepts. Therefore, most people willing to work their way through this book will find it comfortably challenging but never a struggle. Now, the text itself covers the “four main parts of BI development”: 1.) business case, data modelling, data loading script, and building validation.. The authors genuinely worked to create a text that is not there is impress the reader but to teach him/her. This is genuinely refreshing.
Every aspect of this text is polished (down to the concision of the overall text). It reads with ease, the concepts are easy to follow (as a result of the authors’ talents), and the scenarios are especially effective. Do give this text a chance if you are seeking more information on QlikView and business analytics.
