Confronting Reality will change the way you think about and run your business. It is the first book that shows how to connect the big picture of the new era of business with the nitty-gritty of what to do about it. Through a completely new way to understand and use the business model as the primary tool for confronting reality, you'll know sooner rather than later whether your fundamental business premise is under assault, where your best opportunities lie, what you should change and what you should leave alone, and how to realistically plan the future of your business. The fundamentals of how a business makes money are being rapidly and permanently altered by sweeping structural changes. With their extraordinary depth and breadth of experience, Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan are the ideal guides so you can get things right in this challenging, radically changed world. They start by showing you how to understand the most fundamental element of any business: whether you can realistically make the money you hope to in the game you're playing. Bossidy and Charan show how to use the business model to develop a robust, reality-based process for thinking about the specifics of your business in a holistic way. They show how to tie together the financial targets you must meet, the external realities you face, and internal activities such as strategy development, operating tactics, and selection and development of people. Through the lens of the business model, as well as the skillful use of initiatives and development of people with the right leadership characteristics, you'll see how Robert Nardelli at Home Depot, Michael Wisbrun at KLM, Joseph Tucci at EMC, and John Chambers at Cisco confronted reality. Whether they faced crisis or opportunity, all made the right kinds of changes through a combination of business savvy and business model thinking. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Gray.

Summary of Playing to the Edge by Michael V. Hayden | Includes Analysis Preview: Playing to the Edge considers the changing role of the US intelligence community from 1999 to 2015. The author, Michael Hayden, served as the head of both the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) during this period. He uses his own experiences to ground this discussion. "Playing to the edge" is a sports reference that refers to athletes who abide by the rules of the game while using every inch of the playing field to their advantage. Following the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States, the intelligence community strengthened programs and used new tactics to keep Americans safe. New positions and new government bureaucracies were created to respond to the challenges of the so-called War on Terror. New programs, such as NSA metadata surveillance and the development of aerial drones, were conducted without civilian oversight, and in some cases, without public knowledge....
