Working Together free pdf Every great institution needs a partnership to really achieve greatness. In "Working Together", Michael Eisner, former Disney CEO and entertainment biz veteran, takes an inside look at some of the most successful business partnerships and what makes them tick. In business there are always unique individual achievers, but pull down the veil and you'll often find someone alongside them. Eisner does just that in this book, using his own successful collaboration with Frank Wells at Disney as a launching point for examining other famously successful and rewarding partnerships- for example, those of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger, Bill and Melinda Gates, or Valentino and Giancarlo Giammetti, among others. "Working Together" offers a wealth of behind-the-scenes stories and insights from Eisner's in-depth interviews with these partners: tried-and-true wisdom as well as the unexpected, and plenty about what works in business and what doesn't work. This is an essential read for business people everywhere. Partnerships include: Michael Eisner and Frank Wells (Disney)- Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger (Berkshire Hathaway)- Bill and Melinda Gates (The Gates Foundation)- Brian Grazer and Ron Howard (Imagine Entertainment)- Valentino and Giancarlo Giammetti (Valentino)- Arthur Blank and Bernie Marcus (Home Depot)- Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken (restauranteurs)- Joe Torre and Don Zimmer (Yankees)- John Angelo and Michael Godron (finance)- and, Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell (Studio 54).
