9780071626163: Leadership in the Era of Economic Uncertainty: Managing in a Downturn

“There is no better person than Ram Charan to provideadvice on managing in a downturn.”
–Larry Bossidy, former Chairman & CEO Honeywell International Inc.

"This is all classic guru writing, stressing the extremity of the situation. But from Charan - who has already brought us bestsellers such as Execution and What the CEO Wants You to Know - it seems plausible. His forte is bold advice, delivered with convincing rhetoric. And he has completed his new text just at the right time."
--Financial Times

No matter what yourleadership role, Charan’s insight will helpensure that your business emerges leaner,stronger, and well in front of the competition.

“We will not know when we have turned thecorner, and we cannot envision the shapeand scope of the world that will emerge,”Charan writes. “What we can be sure of isthat this is a time of tumultuous change, andwith change come both danger and opportunity.”

In this concise and highly accessibleguide, the author provides practical actionsyou can execute immediately to

  • Protect cash flow vigilantly, even daily,and use cash more efficiently
  • Use ground intelligence to survive thestorm and position your businessto thrive in the aftermath
  • Develop a better understandingof your customers
