Legendary CEO Louis V. Gerstner Jr. pulled off the turnaround of the century by bringing IBM back from near bankruptcy.
I particularly liked the passages on "inspect versus expect," managing by principles vs. process, focus on core competency and impact of culture and how to change it.
Certain times, Gerstner's sense of drama comes across a bit too blatantly for the kind of readership this book might have.
Wish every employee was made to read this book. History repeats itself when you fail to take Gerstner advice.Published 17 days ago by Dallasheat
An awesome book that shows how a new CEO turned around a giant like IBM. IBM is perhaps the only company that has survived multiple major industry upheavals. Read morePublished 25 days ago by Manish Grover

Self-congratulatory book on how Gerstner saved IBM from bankruptcy. Which he may well have done, but in the process he turned it into a company that I wouldn't want to work for. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Richard Title
