There are many good bosses out there and even some great ones. Yet there are some who go beyond great, who can not only effectively manage people, but turn them into great leaders themselves. They are Superbosses: people who, thanks to their unique, personal managing styles, are also wellsprings of talent. They often sit at the center of a web of excellence, intentionally cultivating a network of former superstar employees. Superbosses are people with personalities that stand out, and who take the time to work closely with the people under them. Superbosses have a unique knack for bringing out the best in their underlings. The people who work for a Superboss will often either happily stay with them for years, or go on to become major players themselves. If you find a person who has had an incredible career and maintains strong ties to the people they’ve worked with, it’s likely they are (or have worked for) a Superboss. This book explores just what exactly makes those bosses super,and shows how to bring out the Superboss in yourself!
“It is this strange, seemingly impossible blend of unshakable vision and openness to change that allows Superbosses to unleash a torrent of new ideas among their people, and in the process, drive their own extraordinary business success.”

This book aims to import ideas from “lean manufacturing” and “agile software development” to give a roadmap for entrepreneurs to more systematically grow new companies. The core concept is to create simple “Minimum Viable Products”, to quickly push them out to customers, get their feedback, and iterate on product development. The goal is to not waste precious resources (money & time) on optimizing a product that nobody wants.
