The worldwide success of VISA International, Dee Hock asserts, is due to its chaordic structure: it is owned by 22,000 member banks, which both compete with each other for 750 million customers and must cooperate by honoring one another's $125 trillion in transactions annually across borders and currencies. "One From Many takes the never-before-told story of how that structure came into being, and updates it for today. The book also highlights Dee Hock's evolution from humble beginnings to an iconoclast who challenged the nature of traditional organizations and management. It is the story of an entrepreneur who created a new concept of organization, brought it into being, and led it to amazing success in less than a decade. Hock is a corporate statesman who continues to carry these ideas around the world. Lyrical, humorous, powerfully thoughtful, "One From Many tells how one man blended chaos and order in the unexpected realm of business.

I am reading this book's Chinese Edition for the 4th time now... I was so deeply inspired by Dee Hock's thoughts about people, organization, community, society and the whole world. While each of us are living and working in a highly-ruled environment, we have to deal with so much lots of stuff that accroaches our time, persecutes our faith and ideals, and wastes our energy every day, in every kind of organizations. Dee guided us to re-think the whole world and everything... His practice and thoughts has given us a very unique perspective for moving forward rightly and positively - regarding the organization, regarding the community, regarding the environment, and regarding each of ourselves. Read it...several times, and then you will see how Hock changes your life and your view on the world.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
