Boards That Deliver: Advancing Corporate Governance From Compliance to Competitive Advantage
Finally, a book that brings the vision of truly good governance down to earth. Ram Charan, expert in corporate governance and best-selling author, packs this book with useful tools and techniques to take boards and their companies to a higher level of performance. Charan puts his finger on a growing problem for boards: the disconnect between directors' efforts and their results. The added time and attention boards invest is not translating into better governancea that is, governance that adds value to the business. Boards That Deliver gets beyond the rhetoric of corporate governance reform. It captures the tried-and-true practices used by high-performance boards. In contrast to experts who base prescriptions on number-crunching exercises, Charan identifies the real problems that drain directors' time and suppress their best judgmentsa and explains clearly and succinctly how boards can solve those problems. These battle-tested solutions help boards achieve what rules and regulations alone cannota to get succession right, refine a winning strategy, and design a rational CEO compensation package. Good governance requires leadership. Boards That Deliver is the no-nonsense guide for directors and CEOs who are rising to the leadership challenge to make their boards a competitive advantage.

What the CEO Wants You to Know: How Your Company Really Works
`The most influential consultant alive.' Fortune Have you ever noticed that the best CEOs seem to have a special kind of intelligence, an ability to sense where the opportunities in their industries are and how to take advantage of them? The best have a knack for simplifying the most complex business practices down to the fundamentals - the same fundamentals of the small family business. In What the CEO Wants You To Know, Ram Charan explains in clear, simple language how to do what great CEOs do instinctively and persistently - understand the basic building blocks of a company and use them to figure out how to make it work as a total business. Being able to decide what to do when, despite the clutter of day-to-day to-do lists and the complexity of the real world, takes the mystery out of business and offers a clear road map of organisational success. First published in 2001 (with over 300,000 copies sold worldwide) but never before published in the UK, this business classic has been completely rewritten and updated with new stories from today's market leaders and companies, and the latest insights from the cutting edge of management research. `One of the world's most renowned management consultants and authors.'

Boards That Lead: When to Take Charge, When to Partner, and When to Stay Out of the Way
Is your firm's board creating value--or destroying it? Change is coming. Leadership at the top is being redefined as boards take a more active role in decisions that once belonged solely to the CEO. But for all the advantages of increased board engagement, it can create debilitating questions of authority and dangerous meddling in day-to-day operations. Directors need a new road map--for when to lead, when to partner, and when to stay out of the way. Boardroom veterans Ram Charan, Dennis Carey, and Michael Useem advocate this new governance model--a sharp departure from what has been demanded by governance activists, raters, and regulators--and reveal the emerging practices that are defining shared leadership of directors and executives. Based on personal interviews and the authors' broad and deep experience working with executives and directors from dozens of the world's largest firms, including Apple, Boeing, Ford, Infosys, and Lenovo, Boards That Lead tells the inside story behind the successes and pitfalls of this new leadership model and explains how to: * Define the central idea of the company * Ensure that the right CEO is in place and potential successors are identified * Recruit directors who add value * Root out board dysfunction * Select a board leader who deftly bridges the divide between management and the board * Set a high bar on ethics and risk With a total of eighteen checklists that will transform board directors from monitors to leaders, Charan, Carey, and Useem provide a smart and practical guide for businesspeople everywhere--whether they occupy the boardroom or the C-suite.

n=1: How the Uniqueness of Each Individual Is Transforming Healthcare: How the Uniqueness of Each Individual Is Transforming Healthcare
This book, n=1 is a collaboration of physician health system CEO, venture capital entrepreneur and leading global business advisor and best-selling business author. These differing perspectives provide insights into the forces transforming the global society, business and professions with a focus on US healthcare and its transformation. Healthcare leaders must develop the incisive questions that challenge the orthodoxies hindering organizational transformation. Our experience indicates leaders of successful non-healthcare organizations develop cultures of inquiry that guide their organizations through dramatic market change. Unique individuals are the driving force in the transformation of healthcare. Digitization has democratized information, which feeds the desire of people to act, behave and be treated as unique individuals. Scientific innovation is revealing the importance of our biologic individuality. The financial risk of healthcare is increasingly passed to individuals and providers, fueling changes in financial incentives. An individual with information knows their options, and wants to choose the option most suited to his or her unique healthcare needs and financial means. This profound and fundamental change in the individual's expectations and behavior is accelerating healthcare transformation. The title of this book, n = 1, is a symbol of the uniqueness of individuals. The n=1 will transform healthcare.
