Work the System

by Sam Carpenter

Work the System

Sam Carpenter

Overview

Sam Carpenter has been the CEO and president of Centratel, one of the US's top providers of phone answering services – the people who handle your customer service via the phone – for the past 30 years. During those years, he developed what he calls 'a systems mindset.' He started spotting systems everywhere, and subsequently, optimizing the ones he could control.

He turned this approach into a business philosophy, taught it to many corporations as a consultant and, in 2008, turned it into this book. Work The System is a holistic description of the nature of systems, their ubiquity in life and nature, and how you can use systems for yourself to optimize your life.
