At first glance, Miguel Rivas-Micoud’s book about auto industry CEO Carlos Ghosn’s 24 top management philosophies seems to focus on advice you already know: establish a clear vision, focus on priorities, put profits first. It is a big challenge for an author to explain precisely how a brilliant manager like Ghosn does his job so much better than most other people do similar jobs. There’s the rub: Even managers who know what to do may not know exactly how to execute their work with artistry. To his credit, Rivas-Micoud offers 24 clear management concepts from Ghosn, and tries to convey the magic of how Ghosn leads with such symphonic success. getAbstract acknowledges the value of the principles Rivas-Micoud outlines. These are solid, if not fresh, touchstones from a business superstar.
In this summary, you will learn
- Who Carlos Ghosn is;
- What his accomplishments are; and
- Which 24 management lessons he considers most important.
