Published on the tenth anniversary of the magazine, Fast Company's The Rules of Business features the essential principles behind today’s most important business topics, from customer service to innovation, from strategic thinking to leadership and management.
Some great ones included here:
Rule #1 The first rule of business is the same as the first rule of life: Adapt or die.“What gets measured, gets done.”—Peter Drucker
Rule #8 Nothing is more overrated than a new idea. Ideas by themselves are worthless. It’s what you do with them that matters.“Bet on the jockey, not on the horse.”—Malcolm Forbes
Rule #49 If it is not right, don’t do it; if it is not true, don’t say it.
