Présentation de l'éditeur

In 2008, Howard Schultz, the president and chairman of Starbucks, made the unprecedented decision to return as the CEO eight years after he stepped down from daily oversight of the company and became chairman. Concerned that Starbucks had lost its way, Schultz was determined to help it return to its core values and restore not only its financial health, but also its soul. In Onward, he shares the remarkable story of his return and the company′s ongoing transformation under his leadership, revealing how, during one of the most tumultuous economic times in history, Starbucks again achieved profitability and sustainability without sacrificing humanity.

Offering readers a snapshot of a moment in history that left no company unscathed, the book zooms in to show, in riveting detail, how one company struggled and recreated itself in the midst of it all. The fast paced narrative is driven by day–to–day tension as conflicts arise and lets readers into Schultz′s psyche as he comes to terms with his limitations and evolving leadership style. Onward is a compelling, candid narrative documenting the maturing of a brand as well as a businessman.

Onward represents Schultz′s central leadership philosophy: It′s not just about winning, but the right way to win. Ultimately, he gives readers what he strives to deliver every day– a sense of hope that, no matter how tough times get, the future can be just as or more successful than the past, whatever one defines success to be.

"Through the lens of his personal leadership journey, with all of its dizzying ups and agonizing downs, Howard Schultz has written, with aching honesty and passion, the single most important book on leadership and change for our time and for every generation of leaders. This book is not just recommended reading, it′s required."
Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business, University of Southern California, and author of the recently published Still Surprised: A Memoir of a Life in Leadership

"[This] sequel to the founding of Starbucks is grittier, more gripping, and dramatic, and [Schultz′s] voice is winning and authentic. This is a must–read for anyone interested in leadership, management, or the quest to connect a brand with the consumer."

HASH(0x9567ed14) étoiles sur 5 Recommended for all Business Leaders & Entrepreneurs 18 avril 2011
Par WILLIAM - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I am just about to finish the book...only a few pages left but I had to write a review. I don't write them very often but this book really resonated with me. Unlike a lot of business books written on leadership that are based on theory, ONWARD is a true story of one man's passion to restore his vision for his company. What I really enjoyed was how he didn't glorify himself. Howard was truly authentic in his communication. He had doubts, fears and made mistakes just like we all do. Basically, what I am saying is that you can learn a lot about business from this book but you will learn even more about the mindset and strategies of a true leader and what makes him tick. I am inspired by ONWARD and can't wait to get back to it. My copy is already full of notes, ideas and plans that I have already begun to implement in my company (with noticeable results) I highly recommend ONWARD!

My fascination with Starbucks began as I savoured the first book 'Pour Your Heart into It' as a business school student and now continues with 'Onward', another highly inspirational read by Howard Schultz; a now humbled CEO with a natural talent for knitting powerful words together to tell an engaging motivational story that takes you through the nail biting journey of a company that went from peak to rock bottom to a slow, painful yet rewarding ride back up the mountain. I wont be surprised if this book finds itself in the business schools curriculum as a learning guide for reinventing oneself during challenging times. Get yourself a copy now!!

HASH(0x95603ad4) étoiles sur 5 A decaf Latte - as fast as possible - faster! 9 mai 2011
Par Simon Ruddell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I enjoyed this book, but not as much as Pour Your Heart Into It. Make no mistake, I love Starbucks, both as a customer and as an investor, but this volume lacks the warmth and sheer adventure of the account of the startup of Starbucks.
The most interesting aspect of this account, for me, is that it serves as a perfect illustration of how annoying American upper managament can be. Nothing is ever good enough or fast enough for this man. Everyone has to passionately commit. Everything has to be better than last year, last week, yesterday. Everything has to be done by yesterday!
The newly revamped Starbucks may be wonderful, but it is unsustainable, as is most of the American corporate model. A classic example of this is the author's breathless account of someone coming up with a good idea on a flight back to Seattle and his pride in the fact that he was able to approve the concept and get committment to a date from others on the ground so that by the time they arrived everything was in place. Would it have been such a catastrophe if everyone had taken a day to think it all through? There is a great deal of this kind of thing in this book, and in my experience dealing with American business, such freneticism is all too common.
There is a great deal of pride expressed here in doing more with less - but that cannot go on forever.

HASH(0x95412a14) étoiles sur 5 A Paper Commercial 17 septembre 2011
Par Jacob Phillips - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The first half of the book I honestly enjoyed. I liked being able to go "behind the scenes" to get a look at the everyday operations of a retail giant like Starbucks, to get an idea as to what goes on outside of the cookie cutter stores. However, by the last 50 pages or so, I was skimming. It seems as though the entire book was a commercial, an extra long mission statement, to distract the consumers from realizing that Starbucks is the Walmart of coffee, destroying the little man and getting rid of independent coffee shops across the country.

I admit I read this book with a sense of cynicism, having worked in food service in various capacities over the years. I can't tell you how many times I'd have a human resources manager visit my store and act friendly with myself and my employees, smiling from ear to ear, all the while looking at name tags every few minutes because until that day we were all just a number on a profit sheet. I found it hard to believe that employees (I'm sorry, "partners") were as enthusiastic as Howard claimed them to be when he made a visit. I'm thinking more along the lines of "oh s***, he's here, clean that machine real quick and glue on a smile." I've been down that road.

Another of my issues with the book lies with the reasons behind the declining sales within Starbucks when the recession started. Howard claims that he noticed things were going downhill when wrote the infamous memo, but it wasn't until after the memo leaked that sales started to decline. My cynical take on the matter? Howard couldn't stand not being in charge (he alludes to that fact several times) and couldn't get along with a CEO who wasn't handpicked by him. You notice that he mentions firing the person who "leaked" the memo, but then has a kumbaya moment where he realized that that was no longer a priority. I think he leaked the memo on purpose to give himself an excuse to retake the reins.

In the end, is this an inspirational book, a book that can make you think anything is possible, that it's not over until the fat lady sings? Sure, if you've never held a job in the food service industry and seen what your superiors will do for a profit. All in all, this is a commercial. I laughed out loud when I read that Starbucks doesn't like to advertise. They do. They just like to do it in innovative ways. Not on your television, but at your local library.

HASH(0x94dfeccc) étoiles sur 5 A Fairy Tale 26 octobre 2011
Par D. Hage - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I was so disappointed by this book. It's simply a fairy tale -- the story of Starbucks' turnaround with all the negatives removed. It quotes speeches and memos by Schulz ad nauseum, but skips over crucial details such as where the capital came from for Starbucks to expand from hundreds to thousands of stores in a short time. It's repetitious, full of unnecessary detail, and more a marketing piece than a history.

As Schulz described the ideal new Starbucks store, I thought about my local, urban Starbucks -- the floor is dirty, it's incredibly noisy, you can't see the baristas at all behind the giant coffee machines, everyone is so busy it's hard to get their attention, and the places to order and to receive your drink seem backwards.
