Description du produit
Revue de presse
“Each [chapter is] packed with a punch that seems both profound and practical—profound for how clear and different they tend to be from most accepted business wisdom, and practical because almost everything they describe is immediately applicable.” (800-CEO-READ)
“In short, jargon-free chapters, the authors challenge the way many of today’s businesses are run.” (Financial Times)
“An urgent conversation to have.” (Wall Street Journal)
Présentation de l'éditeur
In this timely manifesto, the authors of the New York Times bestseller Rework broadly reject the prevailing notion that long hours, aggressive hustle, and "whatever it takes" are required to run a successful business today.
In Rework, Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson introduced a new path to working effectively. Now, they build on their message with a bold, iconoclastic strategy for creating the ideal company culture—what they call "the calm company." Their approach directly attack the chaos, anxiety, and stress that plagues millions of workplaces and hampers billions of workers every day.
Long hours, an excessive workload, and a lack of sleep have become a badge of honor for modern professionals. But it should be a mark of stupidity, the authors argue. Sadly, this isn’t just a problem for large organizations—individuals, contractors, and solopreneurs are burning themselves out the same way. The answer to better productivity isn’t more hours—it’s less waste and fewer things that induce distraction and persistent stress.
It’s time to stop celebrating Crazy, and start celebrating Calm, Fried and Hansson assert.
Fried and Hansson have the proof to back up their argument. "Calm" has been the cornerstone of their company’s culture since Basecamp began twenty years ago. Destined to become the management guide for the next generation, It Doesn't Have to Be Crazy at Work is a practical and inspiring distillation of their insights and experiences. It isn’t a book telling you what to do. It’s a book showing you what they’ve done—and how any manager or executive no matter the industry or size of the company, can do it too.

Comment construire une entreprise "calme" en suivant quelques règles simples.
225 pages, 66 thèmes = 3 pages par thème.
La lecture est facile, rapide, chacun des thèmes abordés, des conseils prodigués est en apparence évident, mais c'est en fait une remise en cause totale des principes de management de l'immense majorité des entreprises, et en particulier des plus grandes.
Un grand merci à ces deux dirigeants qui montrent que l'on peut réussir, très bien, sans créer de stress inutile pour ses collaborateurs.

• Employees should not be expected to work after work. 40 hours is plenty.
• Team communication does not need an immediate response.
• Less meetings
• Equal pay for equal seniority.
• Focus on process/gradual improvement vs. arbitrary goals
• CEO’s should think through how a sudden idea or words can alter the course of company culture and how projects get done
...the list goes on
But sadly, these “duhness” principles seem to be the exception in the working world. As an employee of a company who adopts a small share of their principles, I hope this book will serve as a symbol for change.
My knee jerk reaction to this book was its mainly for CEOs, founders, and managers, those in positions of power, to implement the ideas in this book. While I think they do hold the greater share of responsibility to make the change, I believe it is a interdependent change on employer and employee.
For employees, it's a call to analyze your own workplace habits and get better at drawing boundaries. Akin to how holding hidden expectations in a relationship will corrode the relationship if not communicated, acting as if your situation is futile without trying is the easy way out. Look I am scared here. Speaking up I risk being shut down or worse getting fired. However, I feel like it is the right thing to do. The challenge is communicating the ideas in this book so they will be listened to. Rome was not built in a day.
And for those in positions of power, this book shows it does not have to be a trade off between accomplishing something great and having a life outside work. I get that this is an uphill battle as popular culture celebrates the grinders, hustlers...the blood sweat and tears that people wear as a badge of honor. As the book title suggest, there’s a calmer way. This book shows it can be YES AND, not EITHER/OR. Yes you can be effective at work, become rich, leave a dent in this universe AND have a life outside it. Your legacy can be you left a trail of happy, healthy humans who genuinely thought of you as a good boss or manager. You’re happier. They’re happier. You can see your family, friends, and so can they. That seems pretty good to me, even if you don’t accomplish your mission of saving the whales :)
As a fan of Basecamp for sometime, many of these ideas you’ll find on their blog, however, the book feels different. From the choice on ordering how the ideas are presented, the illustrations, and just physical love for books...it’s different than the blog.
If you’re hesitant because the blog is free, do yourself a favor and get the living, breathing thing. Having this book is a great reminder; a great reminder of the world I’d like to live in. A great reminder that there is a saner way to work.
I am taking notes for things that are bugging the crap out of me at work. And I fear I may have to sleep more and stop trying to do a day job and get a "do good" business for first responders rolling in the evenings and weekends.
Great tips like:
* Set up office hours (to avoid being constantly disrupted at the pleasure of everyone else)
* Make your calendar private so people cannot slice up your day for their gain and your loss
* Keep team dependencies minimized
* It's okay to do okay work when that level of quality is just fine
Though "Your Mileage May Vary" is certainly good advice about this book, nonetheless, it supplies a lot of real-world examples of crap and possible solutions that might give you hope, if not a direct-fit recipe.
Along the way I was constantly highlighting bits that really resonated with me or that I would use as reminders for how I want to effect change at work to be more effective and calm.
The book itself is a joy to read as it's laid out in very small, concise, easily-digestible chapters. It doesn't drone on and bury you in explanation, examples, and irrelevant backstory as some books of this nature are wont to do. It gives you the point, a relevant example, caveats, and then lets you think for yourself on the merits of it. Perfect.
Some of the stand-out topics for me, paraphrased:
* Salary negotiations are a load of BS
* Meetings, especially large ones, are an ineffective waste of time. Doubly-so if they have no agenda.
* Unregulated open office plans are terrible. They invite distraction and hamper productivity.
* "When someone takes your time, it doesn't cost them anything, but it costs you everything"
* Keeping up with group chat, emails, other notifications, is a terrible way to spend your day and time
* "Where you live has nothing to do with the quality of your work, and it's the quality of your work that we're paying you for"
* Projects with inflexible scope and deadlines are a recipe for stress, dread, and missed expectations.
* Perks designed to keep you at the office are evil. Better find a company that encourages you to have a life outside of work.
All in all, great book. I'll be buying it as gifts for some office-bound friends and family.
