John Hamblin, former President, Clarke IT Solutions, and CEO, Geode Technologies, Halifax, Canada, and spokesperson of the Startup Canada Halifax Community, has a simple motto: “I am always searching for a better way to do everything.” He had this to say of the book “The Cisco Way”:

“The book describes in detail how Cisco transformed from a hardware-based business to an integrated hardware and services enterprise. During the period where the services business was emerging, Cisco also embarked on a plan to “conquer” the emerging markets of the world and build a true, international powerhouse. The Cisco of today has worldwide operations, with high profit margins (particularly in the services areas), and is one of the largest and best-run technology companies. It is a fascinating story told in a manner that provides the reader with both the opportunity to see how the business evolved and to learn valuable business development lessons.”
