Lessons for the pharma industry from Big Blue?

Who Says Elephants Can’t Dance by L. V. Gerstner (on Kindle)

A great insight into the challenges of saving and transforming an organisation that has become “fat and comfortable” (Hmmm, a bit too close to home?)

Got to this book from this piece:

Some of the pithy quote I will remember from this:

“people don’™t do what you expect but what you inspect,”.

So true!

This is the key to “execution”, one of the three

“…fundamentals that characterize successful enterprises and successful executives. They are focused. They are superb at execution. They abound with personal leadership.”

These

“… apply to enterprises of all sizes and types: large and small companies, publicly traded and non-profit…””
