    I’m starting a journey to become a true leader in my organization I currently sit on the bottom rung of management In my uest I figured the knowledge I atm myself with the better off I’ll be Im giving this book 4 stars not because it’s bad but because it’s geared towards upper management and boards While I gleaned much good from the book I can’t help but think the book is not practical for lower management Taking staff on trips and outings? That smells of office culture Perhaps in future updates interview the management at the lower levels that run the gift shops and restaurants in the parks While I hope to be in the corporate office some day this book while help me there than it does getting me there

    Read reviews here wwwgirlonthemoveblogcomgotm readsIn summary I loved this book I have always been a person who likes systems and processes and I've struggled to figure out how that still leaves room for creativity This book does an excellent job of showing how you can have both creativity and systems in a company and walks you through the steps to do the same in your own organization I would highly recommend this book

    It's a good book and I'd probably give it a 45 It focuses on the methods of Disney building up their culture including what Walt Disney himself did and expanding that to present circumstances While it had ideas about how to apply the messages I wish that a bit could be applicable and that they worked a little at discussing managing the culture on the front line

    Authors blew it when they used urban myths in support of there arguments

    The Disney Way has some really cool ideas about managing businesses that can be incorporated into many different settings One idea I thought was especially fascinating was using storyboards to solve business problems Another idea I really enjoyed was being open to the ideas of workers at all levels Apparently one exhibit was greatly improved by something a janitor said that the other people in the organization wouldn’t have noticedAfter each philosophy is put into use there are specific stories from the companies such as Cheesecake Factory and Whirlpool that use the same ideas Those parts of the book were my favorite because some of the concepts don’t make much sense in a vacuumI read this book because my workplace has recently hired the Disney Institute to help improve our workplace and many of us were enthusiastic to understand what the Disney Institute has to offerI think this book has some great ideas but I also had some problems with itMy first issue was that this book was a very dry read I freuently read non fiction and business related books Some are interesting than others I think this book could have been interesting Disney is a company that is all about entertainment but this book was closer to a text book style wise It isn’t something I would recommend for a fun read about business There are better books out there just for learning about businessMy second issue and it is a big one is that many things in this book feel very whitewashed I have watched documentaries about Walt Disney and read articles etc about the company Many of the things in the book are contradictory to things I have readseen elsewhere about the company I need to point out right now that I am not sure which sources are most correct and it could be that other videos and articles were incorrect and this book is right I can’t be sure but regardless two points in particular really bothered mePoint One Walt Disney was creative but great at watching the bottom lineMost everything I have heard or read about Disney is that he was actually pretty awful with money and others had to help with money management At times Walt made very bad money decisions that could have potentially crippled the companyUnderstandably the books intended audience is management who are probably sticklers of the bottom line so it is easier to make Walt seem as if he was also a stickler of the bottom linePoint Two Walt Disney believes that happy employees are the basis of a good businessI think it goes without saying that this is true Happy employees make a good business Still my understanding is that in early days there were many issues with conflict between Walt and the employees in some cases even involving protests by workersI don’t know where the truth lies but from what I have heard about Disney it is hard to admire him and I think the book places too much admiration on their founder Disney’s principles of business obviously work That doesn’t necessarily mean Disney was a good personI didn’t think this book was all that great but it did have some good ideas If your employer is working with the Disney Institute it might be worth reading Otherwise there are many business books that are easier to read than this one

    Great read This book explains in detail the operating philosophy of Disney as put into practice by its founder Walt back in the 50's and 60's This will take you through the early Disney years in a behind the scenes kind of way and explain why Disney as an enterprise is still so incredibly successful today even after and despite numerous years of boardroom controversies that they've managed to overcome The authors also weave in stories of other successful organizations from the Cheesecake Factory to Five Seasons Hotels Resorts and make the link that such companies have been successful precisely because they have implemented many of the same principles that Disney has After reading this you'll feel a whole new appreciation for Disney and in particular Walt and have a much better understanding of WHY Disney is the company it is engrained in its people from the very beginning As Ken Blanchard bestselling author of The One Minute Manager best puts it “This book is about the real magic Stimulating and harmonizing the collective energy of your people”

    Good book It has some good philosophies and strategies via the Disney Way I would say the Dream Believe Dare Do has some merit and power that can create a successful foundation in an organizations I think the dynamic leader plays a strong role in this success but the philosophy is the main part I liked the examples and I really liked the uestions to ask and actions to take at the end of each chapter

    What a fantastic read An amazing and useful recounting of successful stories from the dream to the execution It provides excellent insights and incorporates best practices tools and strategies that have been contributing to make Disney what it is

  10. says:

    filled with now outdated anecdotes it gives examples to support principles than necessary however what lies between the stories is great idea driven thinking and its explanation of storyboarding meetings is the most concise and simplest form I've read
