This review is from: The Rumsfeld Way: The Leadership Wisdom of a Battle-Hardened Maverick (Hardcover)
Follow the finely crafted journey of the politician, turned CEO, turned politician. Learn how the no-nonsense Secretary of Defense applied his standards of excellence to the floundering G.D. Searle Corporation and turned it into a stockholders dream. And you'll be able to recognize how Rummy is applying those same principles as he works as the CEO to the war on terror.
Author Jeffrey Krames takes you through four decades in the life of Mr. Rumsfeld. Whether you like the man or not, you will have a much better understanding of where he is coming from when he gives those cut-to-the-bone answers during press conferences.
Whether a CEO or a student working part time, the reader will come away motivated and will have a greater understanding of how to succeed in any endeavor. Many great minds have difficulty transitioning from the private to the public sector and vice versa. Rumsfeld did it with ease.
