Originally written as a series of articles for the Harvard Business Review, the stories have now been complied into a single 336 page book divided into six sections: Picking the Right People, Building the Right Culture, Telling the Right Story, Growing around the World, Doing Smart Deals and Finding a Strategy that Works. Each section consists of four to seven stories with unique lessons grouped under the respective general theme. The CEO’s represent a wide cross section of corporate America - including well-known names such as Jeffrey Immelt of General Electric, Bill Marriott of Marriott International, Tony Hsieh of Zappos and Eric Schmidt of Google. Other familiar companies represented include Xerox, HoneyWell, Office Depot, Encyclopedia Britannica and IMAX. Even though the companies represented are large, the issues dealt with are typical of those faced by business executives at all sizes of companies such as hiring the right persons, dealing with declining sales, finding and executing the right strategy and negotiating deals. Each of the CEO’s writes about critical business issues they faced, their thought processes and deliberations, and how they ultimately made key decisions in order to resolve the pertinent issues. The stories are mostly written in a succinct and to the point manner and are all quick digestible reads. Moreover, the personal tone of the contributors adds tremendous value to this collection. Some of the executives speak very candidly, often talking openly about their trepidation, and admitting their mistakes, making them appear very human. How I Did It is highly enjoyable and insightful book and is the closest most persons will ever get to having a personal armchair chat with a major CEO.

    Very good essays from HBR addressing a wide variety of issues that a company may face. From shutting down a business to raising capital, to ensuring that a business sale goes through, how and why employees are important and how to focus on company culture. The stories of Zappos, HCL Tech, R Benckiser, Celtel, Google, Blockbuster were particularly interesting. A pleasant read with good stories and lessons.
