Business Climate Shifts: Profiles of Change Makers Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Business Climate Shifts: Profiles of Change Makers contains a wealth of CEO wisdom about how companies today can successfully manage change in response to rapidly changing business conditions. Includes a compelling overview of the factors and forces driving rapid and often "discontinuous" change in business today - e.g. globalization, the disruptive influence of new technologies, growing electronic connectivity among far flung financial markets, and the rise of e-business among others — and assesses the short and long-term significance of these trends for the long-term viability of companies in all industries. Among the "change makers" profiled in this book: Lord Colin Marshall, Chairman of British Airways; Robert Bauman, former CEO of SmithKline Beecham; Bill Henderson, U.S. Postmaster General; Jane Garvey, Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration; Fred Poses, President of AlliedSignal; Sir Richard Evans, Chairman of British Aerospace; and Errol Marshall, CEO of Shell South Africa, among others.

Features interviews with some of the most significant transformational leaders of our time

Foreword written by Warren Bennis

Contains in-depth analyses of what's required to ensure successful and sustainable transformation

Book News Annotation:

Burke (Teacher's College, Columbia U.) and William Trahant (partner with Pricewaterhouse-Coopers) reveal that today the craft of change leadership is as much a human art as it is a management science. They discuss how it requires imagination and emotional involvement on a leader's part as much as it does discipline and focus, and how it relies as much on a leader's personal openness to new learning as it does on enthusiastic employees. In the profiles of the authors' clients, the reader learns how leaders of major businesses such as British Airways, Allied Signal and SmithKline Beecham successfully transformed their enterprises.
