Summary of The Ghosn Factor
24 Lessons from the World’s Most Dynamic CEO
Carlos Ghosn led Michelin, Renault and Nissan through hard times by following just 24 management principles.
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.
