Working Together: Why Great Partnerships Succeed
Michael D. Eisner and Aaron R. Cohen
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
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.
