Here's my analysis.
This book is a searing commentary on cultural deficiencies, process inefficiencies and gender inequality in the workplace, and also the dangers on getting the wrong person into your organisation via a recruitment process gone awry.
It starts with Sophie and her Mummy receiving an unexpected guest at their house, and wondering who it could be. This is teaching us to be ready for the unexpected and basically the importance of business continuity planning, as you never know what challenges your business might face, especially when Daddy isn't at home.
But he never did.
And there ends the lesson.
Basically, get the basics of HR right and you can't go wrong.
Till next time...
PS Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year!
