Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two leading experts in managerial decision making show that many disasters in business are preceded by clear warning signals that leaders either miss or purposely ignore. Here they outline the six danger signals that suggest a predictable surprise may be imminent.

Book News Annotation:

Two Harvard Business School professors (one current, one former) explain how calamitous events often catch leaders off guard despite prior awareness of the information necessary to anticipate them. Through an examination of well-known disasters such as the Enron debacle, the authors identify six warning signs that precede "predictable surprises" and explore the cognitive, organizational, and political biases that immobilize leaders. They then offer suggestions for overcoming these biases and building support for preventative action.
