Top Customer Reviews
I found all the advice and stories of lessons learnt most useful and I have already applied many of the handy tips to my thinking. I particularly enjoyed the chapter on how managers make a difference which gives some excellent pointers on strategy communication.
While this book looks targeted towards business managers and above, I would suggest it is also valuable for anyone interested to know what CEOs of major multinationals are currently thinking. Other than these people actually writing a book themselves, this is probably the next best thing!
