Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Written by the founder and chairman of Hikma Group, a billion-dollar multinational pharmaceutical company, Building A Global Success is the true story of how one man combined centuries of Middle Eastern wisdom with American values and know-how to build a successful business - one that put people first, respected employees, emphasized research and invention, encouraged education, and invested in America. Building A Global Success is about the power and enlightened self-interest of positive values rather than the greed, ruthlessness, hypocrisy, and poor quality that have spelled out financial as well as moral ruin of so many other businesses. Offering valuable lessons to businesses and corporations of all sizes, Building A Global Success is a positive-minded, true testimony of how business practices and ethics can be combined for greater success on all levels.
