My Years with General Motors became an instant bestseller when it was first published in 1963. It has since been used as a manual for managers, offering personal glimpses into the practice of the "discipline of management" by the man who perfected it. This is the story no other businessman could tell--a distillation of half a century of intimate leadership experience with a giant industry and an inside look at dramatic events and creative business management. Only a handful of business books have reached the status of a classic, having withstood the test of over fifty years' time. Even today, Bill Gates praises My Years with General Motors as the best book to read on business, and Business Week has named it the number one choice for its "bookshelf of indispensable reading."… (mere)

This is one of those books standing tall in my library for years. Content of the book is so revered that it has withstood test of time for me to revert to; initially when I was a novice manager and later as an experienced leader. The book, first published in 1964, about Sloan as an architect of concept of management in first half of 20th century and as a force behind major corporation for America's performance in World War 2. The book is such a solid classic that we, even now in 21st century, resort to the pioneering lessons of last century on how one corporation, led by a man, defined foundation of America's economic leadership in forty years following WW2. We've sure heard about America's motor industry and the golden period but knowledge about how the industry mobilised for record production, how the country's economy flourished and how even Japanese learned lessons and became great economic power themselves is awe inspiring. A behemoth of study, this book is for those who are enthusiastic to know how great corporations are built (Sloan was at GM for 40+ years!). Have guts to imbibe what it takes to build one, the likes of General Motors! This books holds a status of GREAT BUSINESS CLASSIC; if you want to read only one business case, this is an ultimate volume. ( )

Obwohl der Autor in seiner damaligen Funktion bei General Motors bereits zu einem sehr frühen Zeitpunkt (beginnend in den Zwanzigerjahren des 20. Jahrhunderts) wesentliche richtungsweisende Managementstrukturen etablieren konnte, werden diese über weite Strecken grundsätzlich weiterhin gültigen Erkenntnisse durch die übermäßig detaillierte Darstellung der GM-Geschichte in den Hintergrund gedrängt.

This is so highly rated because Sloan conveys through simple, concise language the solutions to the same problems we have made so complex (not that I know how to simplify them again). He writes it as a story. Credits include Bill Gate's acclaim and my original prompt to read it based on it's inclusion in a list of the top ten business books of all time. Sloan began with an engineering background, some business experience and a successful bearings business. It was bought by GM when the firm was consolidating horizontally and vertically. Sloan was at the front of that early success, from the 20's and into the 60's. To summarize it into one lesson: centralize what is most effective centralized, then let human initiative drive from that common framework. Sloan can be credited with running the first corporation of that size with reason, fair dealing, and a visionary outlook. He foresaw the impact of business trends, war, and technology, and yet he was flexible when the consensus opposed him. He carefully considered their international footprint (and re-entry into Opel when assets were returned after WWII). He brought international talent when the design team needed more new influence. He fits the profile of the Type 5 leader described in "Good to Great" - modest, yet driven (in his words "any personal sacrifice for the cause"). He frequently gives credit to others and only once exhibits the slightest hint of boast in his own capabilities (wondering what would have happened to the French automaker Citroen if he or one of his capable peers had decided to run it). One other management theme: the firm would coordinate more during slow time and in times of expansion or matters of innovation, allow more decentralized control. Sloan divides the auto industry into 3 periods: pre-1908 (class market), 1908 to the mid 1920's (mass market), and beyond that (mass-class market). Four elements drove the transformation into the modern period: installment selling, the used-car trade-in, the closed body, and the annual model (would add improved roads as a driving external factor).
