THINK Again: IBM CAN Maximize Shareholder Value is now available
There is no Shortage of Material on IBM
IBM has to be one of the most followed, discussed and documented businesses in American corporate history. Books will continue to be added to this bibliography. It is not an exhaustive list. I have read and utilized many more books than are captured here, but I will keep adding the images and reviews as I get a chance.
I have grouped the IBM Books into four categories: (1) The Classics, (2) The Executives' Books, (3) The Employees' Books, and (4) The Outsiders' Books.
This order makes sense to me as the position of the person writing the book should be considered in evaluating each work. The classics, though, are just that: those books that everyone should read to become acquainted with IBM. If you believe I should include a book in the classics that isn't currently there, just contact me and let me know.
Be sure and check the menus above as there are additional references available and continue to be added: IBM Publications, IBM Research Sites, Ida M. Tarbell, Samuel Crowther, A. W. Shaw and Industrialists' Biographies.
Peter E. Greulich is an author, publisher and public speaker.
He has written three books on IBM and three essays on Thomas J. Watson Sr.’s leadership during the Great Depression. His latest book, THINK Again: IBM CAN Maximize Shareholder Value is about IBM, its leaders, its employees, its shareholders, its customers, its supportive societies, and one-hundred years of their unique interactions. IBM has had its great, good, and bad moments; and, in this century, some of its ugliest.
But there is still hope.
