Ram Charan, a prominent business consultant, examines the functions of business by examining his own family's business in India. He explores the decision-making processes any CEO must use, looking at key issues such as profit margin, customer service, product turnover, and the like. He argues that though the companies may differ in size and other relatively superficial attributes, the functions and principles of doing business successfully are the same. Charan argues that successful CEO's and business leaders willingly seek out help and counsel from sources such as executive coaches, business colleagues, employees, and others, and that anyone who would be similarly successful must do the same. The book is a simple introduction to some very complex topics; a good way to begin.
