William Duggan - The Art of What Works: How Success Really Happens
2003 | ISBN: 0071433503, 0071412069 | English | 305 pages | PDF | 2.1 MB
From Napoleon through Jack Welch, great leaders have always "borrowed" great ideas from others. The Art of What Works cuts against the grain of today's one-size-fits-all strategic gurus to argue that there are no intrinsically good or bad strategies–just flexible strategies that work best in given situations. Welch's appropriation of Six Sigma from Motorola, and use of its best features to revitalize GE, is a recent example of this approach.
