Articles  ("Train Ride Reading")

+++ Latest edition +++

When I was still commuting into London I often used the train ride home to read articles that got me thinking or inspired me in some way. You will have your own slots in the week for such a purpose, and I would like to share some texts with you for these moments.

There are two sections: The first contains straighforward but hopefully insightful management articles, the second ... well, I have written these purely for enjoyment but if you pick up inspiration for your work from them then all the better.

Both sections will grow over time, and any feedback ( would be most appreciated. Please feel free to forward the files as you see fit. If you have any problems opening the articles from the links on this page please get them directly from the download area or read them in the Train Ride Reading and Bootstrapping blogs.
