2. Summary.

From the sample “A bold primer for tackling crises” from the Financial Times we can say that Ram Charan is anoted management writer.
He defined a lot of principles as “Now I have something to contribute, “Leaders must e prepared to make strategic, structural, financial and operational changes in a hurry, and with information that is at best incomplete.” This is all classic guru writing,stressing and extremity of the situation
His forte is bold advice, delivered with convincing rhetoric.The pace of business has to be stepped up,he argues.
Thia book will provide encouragement and sharp ideas to any business leader who is feeling overwhelmed by the sea of troubles that confronts them.
“Actions generates reactions.” You have been warned.
