Praise for Execution:
'A great practitioner and an insightful theorist join forces to write a compelling business story of "how to get it done"' Jack Welch" (Jack Welch)
Présentation de l'éditeur
Larry Bossidy is one of the world's most acclaimed CEOs, with a track record for delivering results that has few peers. Ram Charan is a legendary advisor to senior executives and boards of directors, with unparalleled insight into why some companies are successful and others not. The result is the book people in business need today. One with a highly practical framework for closing the gap between results promised and results delivered. After a long, stellar career with GE, Larry Bossidy became CEO of Allied Signal and transformed it into one of the world's most admired companies. Accomplishments like 31 consecutive quarters of earnings-per-share growth of 13% or more don't just happen. They result from consistent practice of the discipline of execution: understanding how to link the three core processes of any business together: people, strategy and operations.
Quatrième de couverture
One of the most influential and successful business books of our time, fully updated to address the current financial crisis.
When Execution was first published in 2002, it changed the way we did our jobs. By analysing the discipline of getting things done, it helped thousands of business people to make the final leap to success. Now, Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan reframe their empowering message for a world in which the old rules have been shattered, radical change is becoming routine, and for the foreseeable future:
Growth will be slower. But the company that executes well will have the confidence, speed and resources to move fast as new opportunities emerge.
Competition will be fiercer, with companies searching for any possible advantage in every area.
Governments will take on new roles in their national economies. And companies that execute well will be more attractive as partners and suppliers and better prepared to adapt to new waves of regulation.
Risk management will become a top priority for every leader. And every company will be looking for the edge in detecting new internal and external threats.
Forget formulating a 'vision' then leaving others to carry it out - Execution shows you how to link together people, strategy and operations, the three core elements of every organisation, and create a business based on dialogue, intellectual honesty and realism. With case histories from the real world - including recent examples such as the diverging paths taken by Jamie Dimon at JPMorgan Chase and Charles Prince at Citigroup - Execution provides the realistic and hard-nosed approach to business success that could only come from authors as accomplished and insightful as Bossidy and Charan.--Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .
