If you like Jack and Suzy's column in Business Week, you will like Winning: The Answers. I was able to finish this book on a 3 hour flight. The book is formatted as concise 1-3 page answers to questions readers of Jack's other works have come up with.
The questions are grouped into the main categories of:
-Global competition (China!)
-Leadership (being a better boss)
-Management Principles and Practices (running a business to win / be successful)
-Careers ("On Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of a Promotion")
The above four categories take up ~200 pages.
The remaining two categories take up only ~40 pages: Privately Held, Winning and Losing.
New and old managers should find the chapters on Leadership, Management Principles, and Career progression very useful.
This book continues the topic of interpersonal relations within an organization, the topic that was started by "Winning". Both of the books are not about execution or leadership, but about people and how they communicate with each other within an organization, regardless of rank or seniority. It can be applies to the front-line workers and to the bosses. But, nevertheless, we can see a slight shift of accents between the two books. While "Winning" is more dedicated to managers, "The Answer" is more dedicated to ordinary employees. But it doesn't mean that ordinary employees should not read "Winning" before reading "The Answers". Anyway, good books on interpersonal relations within an organization are very scarce. If you like this topic, I can recommend the books by Ronald Heifetz in addition to this book.
It's an ideal short general management text, written by the renowned Jack Welch.
Also, it's more approachable than "Winning", which while it is easy to read and readily digestible, is a much longer and more comprehensive text.
.... Anyone who has a boss , and that is most of us , will benefit from these 74 answers to genuine questions .
Got to order " Winning " , now !
