Publisher's Summary

It would be so much easier to do great work if not for pointless bureaucracies, out-dated technologies, and deeply irrational rules. These things are killing us. Frustrating? Hell, yes.
But take heart. Today’s top performers are taking matters into their own hands: bypassing sacred structures, using forbidden tools, and ignoring silly corporate edicts. In other words, they are hacking work to increase their efficiency and job satisfaction.
In this ground-breaking book, consultant Bill Jensen and hacker Josh Klein reveal how to work smarter instead of harder. Once you learn how to hack work, you’ll accomplish more in less time. You’ll cut through red tape and circumvent stupid procedures. Hacking Work is about making the system work for you, so you can take control of your work load, increase your productivity, and help your company succeed - in spite of itself.
Published as part of the Penguin Portfolio series of business audiobooks.
