Description

Finding The Next Steve Jobs How to Find, Hire, Keep, and Nurture Creative Talent Nolan Bushnell with Gene Stone Nolan Bushnell founded the groundbreaking gaming company Atari, the restaurant chain Chuck E. Cheese's, and two dozen other companies. He also launched Steve Jobs' career, along with those of many other brilliant creatives over the course of his five decades in business. In his eagerly awaited first book, Bushnell explains how to find, hire, and nurture the people who could turn your company into the next Atari or the next Apple. The business world is changing faster than ever, and every day your company faces new complications and difficulties. The only way to resolve these issues is to have a staff of wildly creative people who live as much in the future as the present, who thrive on being different, and whose ideas will guarantee that your company will prosper when other companies fail.

Professional reviews

"The athletic quality in Joseph C. WilsonÕs delivery harkens back to the assertive performances often heard in the early days of business audios, especially those aimed at motivating salesmen. Though his clear diction and lower-range vocal tones are easy enough to hear, a more relaxed approach would have better fit this nuanced book on how to make creative people feel comfortable and productive in organizational settings. ItÕs a smoothly written compilation of 51 specific suggestions from a serial entrepreneur (Atari, Chuck E. Cheese) who seems to have an endless supply of insider stories of how people like AppleÕs Steve Jobs thrived in the various businesses he was associated with. This fast-moving, eye-opening work reminds listeners that the controls and formality of traditional organizational life wonÕt work with todayÕs Gen-X innovators.
