    A fantastic book about the growing state of workplace culture and what the future will look like. It talks about what makes companies successful today (being digital, clear, fluid, and fast) which is, primarily, driven by the Millennial generation. I’m, perhaps, not the right audience for this book as a millennial who already understands these principles. It appears to be targeted at Baby Boomer CEO’s and managers who have the power to actually enact the changes it speaks of.

It talks about what makes companies successful today (being digital, clear, fluid, and fast) which is, primarily, driven by the Millennial generation. I’m, perhaps, not the right audience for this book as a millennial who already understands these principles. It appears to be targeted at Baby Boomer CEO’s and managers who have the power to actually enact the changes it speaks of. The authors speak to this audience, explaining why millennials think the way they do (including constantly adapting to technology and the abundance of everything) and why it’s actually beneficial to them. It includes a wide variety of case studies of companies that are already implementing these techniques with positive results. The authors, also, did their research and talked to many millennials to get their thoughts which are inserted throughout. I felt justified by this book, it echoed the advice I’ve been giving my employers and put words to things I previously wasn’t able to articulate. I had many ‘yes, exactly!’ moments whilst reading it but, although it was a positive experience, it also made me realise I couldn’t enact this change on my own. This modern way of running organisations (with things like transparency and trust) is so foreign to traditional organisations that it feels overwhelming to attempt such large-scale change. You need actionable buy-in from those with power. Good book that hits where needed and I’ll be passing it around. 4.5/5 stars.

    I picked this up because the cover and title were amusing but I thought it was going to be a joke.... boy was I wrong. This book had so much insiteful information in it. It was a different perspective to hear why generations turned out the way they are and how the millennials are pushing the envelope. I highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in business.

    Nội dung cuốn sách cung cấp thêm một cách tiếp cận mới với nguồn nhân lực mới: thế hệ Y. Cũng giúp tôi hiểu thêm về điểm mạnh điểm yếu của bản thân mình, vì tôi thuộc thế hệ Y. Sứ mệnh thời cuộc đã giao cho thế hệ tôi như thế nào. Tuy nhiên, cách trình bày của sách khá là khô khan, ko biết là do dịch thuật hay tác giả trình bày học thuật, tôi đọc vài lần mới hết được cuốn sách.

    Notter devotes a chapter to each of the requirements he believes successful companies today need- to be 1)digital, 2)clear, 3)fluid, and 4)fast. It was good to think about the fact that the young people I work with are so used to instant knowledge access and moving fast. It makes it hard for them to be patient and wait for the bureaucracy to hand down a decision. We better brace ourselves for a fast ride. Notter says if we feel in control as leaders, then we are simply not going fast enough.

Good advice. I highly recommend this book.

    This was a solid short book on what to expect from the new up and coming generation of Millennials. Apparently, I categorize as one being born in 1982. The book is very clear on what is needed and what to expect from Millennials. I thought the "ridiculosly" in the title would be described more and what the negative side effects might be, but I did not see this explained in the book. The book closed really well and I especially enjoyed the piece on how presently building our "community" dynamics This was a solid short book on what to expect from the new up and coming generation of Millennials.

The book closed really well and I especially enjoyed the piece on how presently building our "community" dynamics is of upmost importance. With a flatter culture there will be less power roles and more teamwork needed.

    I'm probably not a really good judge of this book as I really don't believe the hype about various generations and would not have read this book except I was basically told to read it for work. So yes I'm biased against the book to start and the book really didn't do much to overcome that bias. I think a lot of the tips in the book are not really specific to Millennials - who, regardless of their generation, wouldn't prefer to work for an organization where they can work on a roofdeck and get a I'm probably not a really good judge of this book as I really don't believe the hype about various generations and would not have read this book except I was basically told to read it for work.

I think a lot of the tips in the book are not really specific to Millennials - who, regardless of their generation, wouldn't prefer to work for an organization where they can work on a roofdeck and get a new laptop every other year as opposed to a cubicle with a 7 year old computer? While other parts just aren't that helpful.

When you combine material abundance with the information abundance that the internet has brought this generation, you end up with a generational cohort that simply has higher standards. They expect resources to be available because they always have been.

    This is a great book that weaves together the ongoing trends with organizational change and the generational realities of the Millennials. Notter and Grant present strong research, organizational insight, and clear headedness, all while presenting a very accessible text.

    Great optimistic review of millennial value in the workspace The book is very easy to read, well researched and arguments are sound. I loved the positivity and it is in agreement with my own observations. Highly recommended.

    Some food for thought. I'm in between baby-boomers and generation-X, and I can relate. This book gave me some understanding and perspective of the Millenials. Some food for thought.
