To help leaders understand, react to and triumph in today’s fluid business universe, Ram Charan draws from interviews with effective living “catalysts” – people who are masters of recognizing and profiting from uncertainty. Sifting through their insights and experience, Charan presents practical advice rather than abstract theory. He moves smoothly from example to example, detailing and inspiring the mental preparation that will enable you to embrace and exploit new, upcoming paradigms. Put his advice about looking ahead into action to develop the “attacker’s advantage”: being able to benefit from coming change before anyone else does. getAbstract recommends Charan’s smart, accessible, pragmatic advice to investors, entrepreneurs and corporate leaders and to those focused on change, strategy, and personal or organizational growth.

  • What the “attacker’s advantage” is and how to seize it, and
  • How to prepare your organization for times of uncertainty.
