    Reid Hoffman, Ben Casnocha, and Chris Yeh have written an outstanding and important book called The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age. I encourage you to get a copy right now and read it this weekend. If you are a CEO of a company Foundry Group has invested in, there?s n...

    Uneven, stilted writing style. At times it sounds as if it was transcribed from a conversation verbatim. I don't trust companies to have the gumption to even approach this framework until a saturation point is hit and there is no choice but to find a mechanism to promote employee reten...

    Required reading for all "Human Resources"/Talent Acquisition professionals and for companies who really wants to have a 21st Century workplace. The book is very practical and I believe should be required on any HR training. ...

    Really liked this book especially given that i'm doing a lot of hiring and managing of people. A good framework for how to set career and employee goals. ...

    A realistic outlook into today's employer-employee relationship, emphasizing the end of life-time employment and introducing "life-time alliance" instead, creating a win-win solution for both parties. ...

    In The Alliance, Hoffman et al make a convincing case for updating hiring best practices to reflect the ever-changing reality of the modern world. Hoffman explains that the current generation of workers no longer expects to spend their careers tied to a single employer or industry. Ins...

    'The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age' by Reid Hoffman, Ben Casnocha and Chris Yeh is a fresh look at what it looks like to be employed in the 21st century, where there is no guaranteed employment and employees want to act like free agents. What is a company to do? Th...

    I heard Ben Casnocha give a keynote speech at a conference and was intrigued by his idea on creating employment alliances. Basically, it seems like he is calling for greater transparency and authenticity of relationships in the working world. I enjoyed the book and think the concep...

    This book reads like a TedTalk painfully stretched out into 155-pages of spacious lettering. It could've been half as long and just as effective. In addition, the authors weave in spotless success stories which lack emotional strength, of folks who've moved up and around the ladder at ...

    Overall, this is a really good read. As a manager I feel like this book has given me really great tools for conversations with people on my team. It has also given me a vision for what I'd like for conversations with my leadership to look like. All too often companies are stuck in ...

    These days the idea of "lifelong employment" seems quaint and antiquated. Employment relationships simply don't work that way anymore. "The Alliance" starts from this point of view and provides a clear, focused, and practical strategy to build mutually beneficial employee employer rela...

    I read this book for a management course and found it to be very insightful. This is a good read for managers who are dealing with turnover as well as trying to cultivate talent. We are no longer working in fields that offer lifelong employment opportunities- and that's alright. Whethe...

    This book, will change the prism by which you look at employer-employee relations. As a business owner and manager I find that getting in groups and talking about how people "don't stay long these days" does nothing to change that reality. This book, helps you to embrace that reality a...

    I saw Hoffman on Charlie Rose the other night talking about this book and decided to read it. This book is a really great perspective on the paradigm shift that is happening with employee/company relationships. Hoffman describes these new relationships as 'Alliances,' and discusses how...

    Practical guide for new work models that encourages companies and individuals to invest in each other realizing that the lifetime employment of the Industrial Age is over. I would summarize that the book has 3 main ideas - Tours of duty, Network Intelligence and Corporate Alumni and it...

    Really impressed with the concepts in this book. I hadn't quite thought about careers with this specific framework. It is instructive though in helping to think through both staffing and career planning. The tour of duty concept and the focus on outcomes for the company and the employe...

    Another great forward thinking book about the way networking, branding, and work are changing in our world. A must read for any manager or employer who wants to remain competitive in any real way. Companies that create an alliance with employees (and many companies already do in some w...

    The concepts in this book is not new, but it has been revamped LinkedIn style to address the changes in modern employement. An engaging page turner for all. My blog on this book: http://blog.7geese.com/2014/09/05/how... ...

    Good book, interesting take on how employment has changed from staying with one company for a lifetime career to now how people change companies several times, and sometimes "boomerang" back to a company for a repeat. ...

    Great little book; Deloitte used to exemplify this back in my early days with the firm. Really good ideas for anyone leading an organization or involved in professional development, talent, or HR. ...

    The authors managed to teach a paradigm shifting framework for the employer-employee relationship in an incredibly simple, relevant, and applicable way. I believe they are right when they foresee that this framework is more and more necessary in today's day and age where lifetime emplo...

    Thought provoking read! Want to keep both employees and companies in a trusted win-win relationship? This book offers a framework for open and respectful communication, goal setting, and an ethical obligation to keep each other accountable. The writers have done a great job encap...

    I liked the concepts of tours of duty and the analysis of how to have commitments and trust in a world where each employment engagement is limited in duration (2-4 years). The suggestion about the 3-5 minute "life story" in an interview is an interesting way to start the discussion...

    I liked the concepts of tours of duty and the analysis of how to have commitments and trust in a world where each employment engagement is limited in duration (2-4 years). The suggestion about the 3-5 minute "life story" in an interview is an interesting way to start the discussion...

    Although it is evidently a branding tool for LinkedIn, this book does offer a few valuable ideas - especially for conservative corporations and their managers - on how to "humanize" relationships with their employees. From taking the time and putting in the effort (and the courage) to ...

    There is something different at the core of LinkedIn & many other Silicon Valley-based companies at how they look at talent & tours of duty. Book is a quick read that runs through fundamentals behind the idea that there are very few lifetime jobs anymore & that in order for...

    As an audiobook this was just shy of four hours. I listened in conjunction with reading The Startup of You. This felt like an extension/explication of some of the ideas in that book. I don't know that it really introduced anything new, so if hard-pressed you could probably get away wit...

    Reid Hoffman, Ben Casnocha, and Chris Yeh have written an outstanding and important book called The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age. I encourage you to get a copy right now and read it this weekend. If you are a CEO of a company Foundry Group has invested in, there?s n...

    It's mainly content marketing of Linkedin wrapped in a book form. However, there is quite relevant information on human resource management. It helps understand how big corporations should manage entrepreneurial employees. This could have been great HBR article ...

    Chapter 1: Employment in the Networked Age ? The fundamental disconnect of modern employment: the employer-employee relationship is based on a dishonest conversation ? The goal of The Alliance is to provide a framework for moving from a transactional to a relation approach. Thi...

    Uneven, stilted writing style. At times it sounds as if it was transcribed from a conversation verbatim. I don't trust companies to have the gumption to even approach this framework until a saturation point is hit and there is no choice but to find a mechanism to promote employee reten...

    Required reading for all "Human Resources"/Talent Acquisition professionals and for companies who really wants to have a 21st Century workplace. The book is very practical and I believe should be required on any HR training. ...

    Really liked this book especially given that i'm doing a lot of hiring and managing of people. A good framework for how to set career and employee goals. ...

    A realistic outlook into today's employer-employee relationship, emphasizing the end of life-time employment and introducing "life-time alliance" instead, creating a win-win solution for both parties. ...

    In The Alliance, Hoffman et al make a convincing case for updating hiring best practices to reflect the ever-changing reality of the modern world. Hoffman explains that the current generation of workers no longer expects to spend their careers tied to a single employer or industry. Ins...

    'The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age' by Reid Hoffman, Ben Casnocha and Chris Yeh is a fresh look at what it looks like to be employed in the 21st century, where there is no guaranteed employment and employees want to act like free agents. What is a company to do? Th...

    I heard Ben Casnocha give a keynote speech at a conference and was intrigued by his idea on creating employment alliances. Basically, it seems like he is calling for greater transparency and authenticity of relationships in the working world. I enjoyed the book and think the concep...

    This book reads like a TedTalk painfully stretched out into 155-pages of spacious lettering. It could've been half as long and just as effective. In addition, the authors weave in spotless success stories which lack emotional strength, of folks who've moved up and around the ladder at ...

    Overall, this is a really good read. As a manager I feel like this book has given me really great tools for conversations with people on my team. It has also given me a vision for what I'd like for conversations with my leadership to look like. All too often companies are stuck in ...

    These days the idea of "lifelong employment" seems quaint and antiquated. Employment relationships simply don't work that way anymore. "The Alliance" starts from this point of view and provides a clear, focused, and practical strategy to build mutually beneficial employee employer rela...

    I read this book for a management course and found it to be very insightful. This is a good read for managers who are dealing with turnover as well as trying to cultivate talent. We are no longer working in fields that offer lifelong employment opportunities- and that's alright. Whethe...

    This book, will change the prism by which you look at employer-employee relations. As a business owner and manager I find that getting in groups and talking about how people "don't stay long these days" does nothing to change that reality. This book, helps you to embrace that reality a...

    I saw Hoffman on Charlie Rose the other night talking about this book and decided to read it. This book is a really great perspective on the paradigm shift that is happening with employee/company relationships. Hoffman describes these new relationships as 'Alliances,' and discusses how...

    Practical guide for new work models that encourages companies and individuals to invest in each other realizing that the lifetime employment of the Industrial Age is over. I would summarize that the book has 3 main ideas - Tours of duty, Network Intelligence and Corporate Alumni and it...

    Really impressed with the concepts in this book. I hadn't quite thought about careers with this specific framework. It is instructive though in helping to think through both staffing and career planning. The tour of duty concept and the focus on outcomes for the company and the employe...

    Another great forward thinking book about the way networking, branding, and work are changing in our world. A must read for any manager or employer who wants to remain competitive in any real way. Companies that create an alliance with employees (and many companies already do in some w...

    The concepts in this book is not new, but it has been revamped LinkedIn style to address the changes in modern employement. An engaging page turner for all. My blog on this book: http://blog.7geese.com/2014/09/05/how... ...

    Good book, interesting take on how employment has changed from staying with one company for a lifetime career to now how people change companies several times, and sometimes "boomerang" back to a company for a repeat. ...

    Great little book; Deloitte used to exemplify this back in my early days with the firm. Really good ideas for anyone leading an organization or involved in professional development, talent, or HR. ...

    The book itself was a bit overlong, but the messages it conveys ring true. While I may not fully agree with the idea of "tours of duty", I do find the concept of lifelong alliance between the company and its alumni enticing; though the exact applicable extent of this strategy is yet to...
