"Confronting Reality" will change the way you think about and run your business. It is the first book that shows how to connect the big picture of the new era of business with the nitty-gritty ofwhat to do about it. Through a completely new way to understand and use the business model as the primary tool for confronting reality-a breakthrough that will become the management innovation of thisdecade-you'll know sooner rather than later whether your fundamental business premise is under assault, where your best opportunities lie, what you should change and what you should leave alone, and howto realistically plan the future of your business. The fundamentals of how a business makes money are being rapidly and permanently altered by sweeping structural changes. With their extraordinary depthand breadth of experience, Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan are the ideal guides for everyone-entrepreneur, mid-level manager, or CEO--about what is to be done so you can get things right in thischallenging, radically changed world. They start by showing you how to understand the most fundamental element of any business: whether you can realistically make the money you hope to in the game you're playing. Bossidy and Charan show how to use the business model to develop a robust, reality-based process for thinking about the speci?cs of your business in a holistic way. They show how to tie together thefinancial targets you must meet, the external realities you face, and internal activities such as strategy development, operating tactics, and selection and development of people. Through the lens of thebusiness model, as well as the skillful use of initiatives and development of people with the right leadership characteristics, you'll see how Robert Nardelli at Home Depot, Jim McNerney at 3M, Dick Harrington atthe Thomson Corporation, Michael Wisbrun at KLM, Joseph Tucci at EMC, and John Chambers at Cisco confronted reality. Whether they faced crisis or opportunity, all made the right kinds of changes through a combination ofbusiness savvy (the art of understanding the fundamentals driving a business) and business model thinking.
