Julie Zhuo (VP Product Design/Facebook)I picked up the book after Grove passed away this year and I found it so succinct, so clear, and so packed with easy-to-understand analogies. It really gets to the heart of what good management is.
Brian Chesky (Co-Founder/AirBnB)For Chesky, a source may come in the form of a biography of a business hero such as Steve Jobs or Walt Disney. His primary book source on management technique is Andy Grove’s High Output Management.
Dan Reich (Co-founder/Troops)I'm a really big fan of High Output Management by Andy Grove, who is the former CEO of Intel. He talks about how he thinks about management and systems thinking in general and what he did to build Intel into the company that it is today. And I think there's just a lot of great lessons for not only management and managers, but people that report into managers, people that are managers, and also how to think about creating leverage for you in a company. And there's just not many people better than Andy Grove to outline what that looks like.
Emi Gal (CEO/Teads Studio)I like to think that all the books I’ve read have helped me in some way. High Output Management in particular has really helped me become a better manager.
The essential skill of creating and maintaining new businesses—the art of the entrepreneur—can be summed up in a single word: managing. Born of Grove’s experiences at one of America’s leading technology companies, High Output Management is equally appropriate for sales managers, accountants, consultants, and teachers, as well as CEOs and startup founders. Grove covers techniques for creating highly productive teams, demonstrating methods of motivation that lead to peak performance—throughout, High Output Management is a practical handbook for navigating real-life business scenarios and a powerful management manifesto with the ability to revolutionize the way we work.
