Editorial Reviews

"Charles Ehin offers us a visionary guide into novel organizational forms and the opportunities they present for innovators. This is a wake-up call, challenging our most basic assumptions about management of organizations. His timing is perfect: loosen the hierarchy...harness democracy...think not of employees, but of partners. This is a book packed with insights and wisdom. Leadership would be well served to incorporate its lessons into the new networked business world of today." (Peter A. Gloor, Ph.D., Visiting Scholar, MIT Center for Coordination Science)"Finally, a real breakthrough in management theory and philosophy. In Hidden Assets Ehin breaks the mold of current management thinking and presents a comprehensive and practical framework specifically designed for the knowledge economy." (Chris Tomecek, President, Bank of New York Separate Accounts Division)"Where was all of this when I needed it??? Over 40 years of management knowledge, experience, and tools packed into one book! What an incredible jump-start into a management career found in one quick-read work!" (Peter F. Gerity, Ph.D., Vice President for Academic Affairs, New Mexico Tech)"Ehin's enlightening book presents a compelling evolutionary argument about the fundamentals of human nature and demonstrates how best to manage 21st Century organizations where knowledge is the key factor for success. Finally, a book with practical implications showing how to leverage the power of  'invisible' social networks where most of the work is accomplished in the first place." (Steven O. Laing, Ed.D., Utah State Superintendent of Public Instruction)
