about

Capitalism has been an unprecedented engine of wealth creation for many centuries, leading to sustained productivity gains and long-term growth and lifting an increasing part of humanity out of poverty and subsistence. But its effects, and hence its future, have come increasingly under question: Is capitalism still improving the wealth and well-being for the many? Or, has it become destructive for the economy, where long-term value creation is being sacrificed to the pressures of short-termism; for society, where the gap between rich and poor has increased and opportunities to lift oneself out of poverty have dwindled; and for the natural environment, which seems increasingly under threat with unforeseen consequences for prosperity and global order? This volume reflects both the urgency of the needed action and the opportunity to achieve a wide-ranging agreement and lasting movement towards a more responsible, equitable, and sustainable model of capitalism in order to ensure its very survival. The volume is unique in that it brings together many of the leading proponents for a reformed, re-imagined capitalism from the fields of academia, business, and NGOs. Its contributors have been at the forefront of thought and action in regard to the future of capitalism. Both individually and collectively, they provide powerful suggestions of what such a long-term oriented model of capitalism should look like and how it can be achieved. Drawing on their research and/or professional experience, they write in an accessible way aiming to reach the broad audiences required to turn a re-imagined capitalism into a reality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Attacker's Advantage Another wonderful book by Ram Charan that stimulates thinking and self-reflection about the importance of having an Attacker's mindset in this era of structural uncertainty. There are several important concepts in this book such as Perceptual Acuity, having a mind-set to see opportunity in uncertainty and capitalize on it with commitment and buy-in from the crucial stakeholders, Adeptness in managing the transition to the new path and building up the skills required in making one's organization steerable and agile amidst the uncertainty through an interesting concept known as Joint Practice Session ("JPS"). Other examples in this book include well-known companies such as Tata Communications, Ford, Merck, GlaxoSmithKline ("GSK"), General Electric ("GE"), Verizon and many more...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The GE way... I found this book very interesting in convincing me of the importance to put all the ressources to get things done aligned with corporate vision. Unfortunately, it has be written with a focus on large corporation. The way to do strategic planning and corporate budget has nothing to do with small and medium size businesses.
