Dalio shares what he has learned during his incredible career in Principles. Hundreds of concrete insights from the book, built on its cornerstones of revolutionary honesty and radical openness, include Dalio pointing out the most successful strategies for people and organisations to take decisions, tackle problems, and create powerful teams. He also presents creative methods to bring a meritocracy philosophy to life, such as developing baseball cards for all workers distilling their abilities and shortcomings, or using computer-based decision-making processes to create credibility-weighted decisions. Although the book brims with innovative concepts for organisations and agencies, Principles also offers a simple, concise guide to decision-making which Dalio thinks everyone should follow, regardless of what they try to do.
