Here in Austin for the Managing Performance conference, LAPD chief Bill Bratton made some amazing points about his efforts to apply a data-driven mindset to reducing crime in L.A. and, earlier, in New York City.
But he also talked more broadly about being an agent of change, and where he gets some inspiration for making a difference. He mentioned a few of the most important articles and books he's read on the subject. Here are his favorites:
-- Tipping Point Leadership, a piece in the Harvard Business Review by Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne.
-- The Tipping Point, by Malcolm Gladwell
-- Good to Great, by Jim Collins
Bill Bratton is a guy you want to emulate. Reading these books sounds like a pretty good place to start.
You can read Bratton's own words about his approach to reducing crime in New York City in the 90s in his book, The Turnaround: How America's Top Cop Reversed the Crime Epidemic.
