4.0 out of 5 stars A new lens on leadership, 9 May 2011
The Leaders Dilemma is a well written book that supports Fons Trompenaars assertion that global leaders of the future need to excel at managing and reconciling dilemmas. Together Jeremy Hope, Peter Bunce and Franz Röösli , three of the four founding members of the Beyond Budgeting Round Table ,challenge mainstream business schools against `the pursuit of misguided models'. As an alternative using a variety of practical examples the authors provide 12 principles to help the reader think through methods of building empowered and adaptive organisations without losing control.
This book is highly recommended for managers and leaders who want to act innovatively in creating new organisation designs that add breakthrough value.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Lens on Management, 30 Dec 2008
Mol and Birkinshaw have written a painstaking and readable account of the key innovations in management practice over the last century. Be it Motorola's development of Six Sigma to a brief history of 'T groups' they cover many diverse bases from a process, financial, people, organisation design and strategy perspectives.
Well done authors in pulling these perspectives together in one place.
