Description

There's a new breed of top manager at work, practicing a new kind of dynamic leadership-for-results. In his most important book since The Supermanagers (1984), Robert Heller presents the first account of these CEOs' early 1990s accomplishments - what they do and how they do it.In men like Welch of GE, Vagelos of Merck, Gates of Microsoft, and Pfeiffer of Compaq, Robert Heller finds today's role models for tomorrow's success - executives who realize that in our increasingly competitive business world, the traditional ways of many-layered hierarchical management just don't hack it any longer. The Super Chiefs takes the reader into their many environments to show how scores of CEOs have learned to adapt and to unlock the full power that exists at every level of their companies.Offering cautionary tales among the numerous success stories, the author examines how changing conditions in the global marketplace have made many old strategies and assumptions irrelevant or obsolete. As United States business and industry face the challenge of competing in the twenty-first century, America's most talented CEOs are leading, company by company, a management revolution around us. With its penetrating insights into today's leadership and their quantifiable achievements, The Super Chiefs is a very timely road map for many others, today and tomorrow.show more
