    A quick read on business leadership

    The author spends a chapter on each of the eight skills (know-hows) essential for effective leadership. While I found some of his anecdotes interesting, the book did not provide the source of insight that I was looking for. Many of the ideas are common sense, and are found in other business books. For example, in a discussion of a company (Thomson Corp), Charan discusses a couple of 2x2 matrices used for historical and prospective analysis. This is essentially the same tool popularized by BCG (Boston Consulting Group) from the 1970's. Perhaps the value in the book is putting the leadership traits/skills in a framework that is easily summarized and digested.

    a reviewer

    Given the reality of the modern world, business schools and management training programs should offer a class called: 'Business Savvy 101: An Overview of Hidden Agendas, Power Struggles and Other Leadership Challenges.' Fortunately, Ram Charan offers a tutorial on that subject in this book. He provides excellent insights for aspiring executives and current leaders. Although parts of the text are repetitive, that fault is far outweighed by the value of Charan's concrete examples from brand-name companies. We recommend this book to readers at all levels of management who want to sharpen their leadership skills.
