More About the Author

Sydney Finkelstein is the Steven Roth Professor of Management and Director of the Center for Leadership at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, where he teaches courses on Leadership and Strategy. He is also the Faculty Director of the flagship Tuck Executive Program, and has experience working with executives at a number of other prestigious universities around the world. He holds degrees from Concordia University and the London School of Economics, as well as a Ph.D. from Columbia University in strategic management.

Sydney has published 20 books and 80 articles, with several bestsellers, including the #1 bestseller in the U.S. and Japan, Why Smart Executives Fail. Based on a six-year study of 51 companies and 200 interviews of business leaders, the book identifies the fundamental reasons why major mistakes happen, points out the early warning signals that are critical for investors and managers alike, and offers ideas on how organizations can develop a capability of learning from corporate mistakes. On Fortune Magazine's list of Best Business Books, the Wall Street Journal called it "a marvel - a jargon-free business book based on serious research that offers genuine insights with clarity and sometimes even wit ... It should be required reading not just for executives but for investors as well." It has also been featured in media around the world and has been translated into 12 languages.

His latest book, to be published, out Feb 9, 2016, is SUPERBOSSES: How Exceptional Leaders Master the Flow of Talent. Once again he has undertaken extensive research over a ten year period of some of the most intriguing business leaders in the world who all have one thing in common - they helped develop the best talent in their industry sectors, who in turn helped them become the legendary successes they are today. What they did, and how they did it, is shared via fascinating profiles and seven management practices that separate the best bosses from the merely good ones. LinkedIn Chairman Reid Hoffman calls it "a leadership guide for the Networked Age," while Jeff Immelt, Chairman and CEO of GE, says "Superbosses gives leaders a playbook to bring out the best in their people."

Sydney is a Fellow of the Academy of Management, and has had three books nominated for the Academy of Management's Terry Book Award, the most prestigious such honor in the field. He is a recognized thought leader on leadership, strategy, and corporate governance, and is listed on the "Thinkers 50," the most prominent ranking of management thinkers in the world. He is well known for his keynote speeches and television appearances, and is a regular columnist for the BBC. He has worked as a consultant and speaker for major companies around the world.

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an excellent review of the state of academic research on CEOs, top management teams, and boards of directors, written by some of the top professors in the field. Gaps and weaknesses in current research are frequently noted, making this book a good source of research ideas for PhD students and professors interested in corporate governance.

The writing styles vary from chapter to chapter, probably depending on who was the lead author for that section; Finkelstein no doubt is behind the discussions of power, for example. However, all are well-organized with extensive citations, similar to a literature review.

I would not necessarily recommend this book for practitioners (managers and executives), or MBA and undergraduate students.

Format: Hardcover
Having added Bert Cannella to the team, once again Syd Finkelstein and Don Hambrick have produced the definitive work on the upper echelons of organizations. A very comprehensive overview of the literature on executives, top management teams, and boards, bound together by an exhaustive sequence of propositions garnered from the current research, this book is essential reading for those studying strategic leadership, and will have a profound impact on future research. Definitely a "must have" book on my bookshelf.

It is important to understand that this is an academic text that is not intended to practitioners or for a general audience. If you read it with that in mind you will find that it is an amazing resource and the definitive text on the topic of strategic leadership.
