Heartbreak for Engineers
23 September 2018
It's a great book with in depth analysis and fortified with copious amounts of data.
My only problem is with the title , more apt title would have been : "Dilemmas of Innovator's Manager"
This is book about disruptive innovation, and I understand that this is book for managers, but all the tech is treated as merely incidental , the blood , sweat and tears of engineers who would have brought these technologies to fruition , most probably while working in "their own time" - the time which should have been spent with their families or taking care of their health , is reduced to a simple ascending curve , which was simply incidental , something which happened on it's own accord.
Long after reading this book following lines from the book stay with me , An executive and his skip level boss talking to him :
"But does engineering think we can do it ?"
"They stay it'll be a stretch , but you know them . They always say that"
