In an article announcing the 2016 annual awards longlist, 800-CEO-READ’s Editorial Director Dylan Schleicher, makes an interesting observation about this year’s best business books:
While speed, innovation, big data, and disruption are the business buzzwords of the day, the best books of 2016 argue for a more considered and considerate, human-centered, inclusive, and deliberately constructive approach to business. Change is in the air and technology is on the rise, but business is still a human pursuit, and should be humane. In a media climate dominated by Twitterstorms and sound bites, it is important to dive deeper into the issues and inform ourselves more fully before taking action. These books help do that.
Here is the longlist for the 2016 800-CEO-READ Business Book Awards:
LEADERSHIP & STRATEGY
MANAGEMENT & WORKPLACE CULTURE
MARKETING & SALES
INNOVATION & CREATIVITY
PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT & HUMAN BEHAVIOR
CURRENT EVENTS & PUBLIC AFFAIRS
NARRATIVE & BIOGRAPHY
BIG IDEAS & NEW PERSPECTIVES
