Books / Reading


It was during my internship at Koch Industries where my recent love for reading was discovered. I witnessed for the first time a company culture built off basic economic principles that encourages a free society. Koch Industries identifies this guiding framework as Market-Based Management (MBM). After weeks of continuous self-study on MBM, I became highly impressed with such a framework and needed to know how it was developed.

It was said that Charles Koch developed a hobby for reading in high school and later in life used this hobby to learn and apply principles in his professional environment. The numerous concepts Charles would read, learn, and apply became overwhelming for employees to follow and so it was then MBM framework was created (framework itself, not the concepts or principles).

I became inspired to not only learn and apply these principles & concepts of Market-Based Management, but also to read the books that inspired those (there is now an internal dedicated team at Koch Industries) who helps to develop it. This is precisely when (May 2018) I started to read consistently and thoroughly with all intentions to create value to whom I interact with throughout my life.
