Walking the Corporate Beat: Police School for Business People Reviews
Two things happened that I never expected when I read "Walking the Corporate Beat". First, I really enjoyed a non-fiction book on business. Second, I learned something. In "Walking the Corporate Beat", Michael Tabman takes principles he learned as a police officer and FBI agent and applies them to running a company. It amazed me that the same rules and procedures police and investigative officers use can help a business run more smoothly."Walking the Corporate Beat" is highly readable. By using situations he encountered as a police officer or FBI agent, Tabman illustrates the points he's making for businessmen. This is what makes it so interesting and easy to read. It's more like a story and less like a dry lecture.Not only does Tabman clearly express his points as they apply to business, we see something of the man behind the principles. Michael Tabman doesn't use a lot of fancy language to get his point across. I was never lost, wondering where he was going. I loved that! I wish the textbooks I had to read in school were written more along this line. I would have learned and retained so much more.In each chapter, Tabman relates anecdotes from his police and FBI careers, applying the techniques used for organizing, disseminating information and reacting to a situation, to business. After reading "Walking the Corporate Beat", I know what a measured response is and how to implement one. I know to keep it simple (KISS) and the importance of having clear lines of communication between those in charge and their subordinates – as well as between all the leaders.In the next to last chapter, Tabman creates a company, an executive, Joe Bridges, and a situation that Bridges must confront and deal with. Through this, he brings to life everything he's discussed in the prior chapters. I won't tell you whether or not Joe is 100% successful, but Tabman is. His example serves to clarify his points well. In the final chapter, her summarizes briefly everything he's discussed.Busy executives could take this book and use it to improve the way their companies operate. These same ideals could be applied to large or small organizations. This book could also be useful to those in government offices and schools.I highly recommend "Walking the Corporate Beat" by Michael Tabman. It is well thought out, clearly written and so interesting I found it hard to put down.© 2011 Dellani Oakes
That was fun!! I knew from the first page that I would enjoy it. Those were great questions to ponder. I was just as curious as to why the author was scolded for catching the bank robber as I was as to how he got a date with a pretty girl after writing her a ticket. The stories were very interesting and I learned a lot. I never heard of the Broken Windows theory for fighting crime, and it made sense for taking care of the little things in life before they spin out of control. This was much different than other books I've read and am not sure what genre this is. That doesn't really matter, this was a fun and interesting book.
I read this book after reading Michael Tabman's novel Midnight Sin. This was a non-fiction book. Tabman used really interesting stories from his law enforcement experience to make a point - basically, why some things got screwed up and why some things worked right.The stories were from the mob to drugs to terrorism and were usually pretty funny. It gave some interesting insight into the decision making of police and FBI. This was a fast read that was easy to follow and understand. I really enjoyed it.
This was the most different book I ever read. With all the true stories, it was almost as thrilling as Midnight Sin. I really liked how the police stories related to real life events. My favorite was how an FBI agent's big ego almost screwed up an undercover operation.This book was fun to read. I laughed as much I was amazed by what happens behind the scenes when police and FBI are doing their jobs.
After 27 years from street cop to FBI senior executive, I have seen as much action on the street as I have behind closed doors in the office. I've learned a few lessons along the way. Share some of my experiences -from thugs and drugs to mobsters, terrorists and the stranger sitting beside you. This book will open your eyes to dangers you never knew existed.
Great book. Very interesting stories and the author really made some great points
This is a must-read for business students/MBA's. Business ethics is not a science and yet it's taught that way. This is a look at ethics from the top down. Everything that you should know but never learn in college. This book takes a close look at the reasons for unethical behavior such as "group think" and how ego can lead us astray of our goals and lead to disaster.
