Working with bestselling author and renowned consultant Ram Charan, Bossidy shows how to make the leap from a vision of a big idea to actually delivering bottom-line results. And he does this within the real-time context of Honeywell, a company challenged by the failed merger with GE and a downturn in the airline business following the events of September 11. Bossidy and Charan show that good execution is the ability to effectively deal with sudden changes in the business environment by making crucial linkages between people, strategy, and the operating plan.
Never before has a top executive presented such a candid and detailed picture of the methods he is using to turn failure to success. Execution will attract a huge amount of attention and at the same time give other managers and executives tools they can use to deliver results in their own businesses.
