This is the first of short articles of my thoughts about Leading and Managing winning companies.
Why some companies constantly win in today’s globalized and intensely competitive world, while others struggle from one crisis to the next? It is simply leadership and management expertise that can take advantage of the rapidity with which ideas arise, are developed and applied, and the immediacy and degree of their impact in our lives. Let me illustrate.
