Larry Bossidy is one of the world’s most acclaimed CEOs, a man with few peers who has a track record for delivering results. Ram Charan is a legendary advisor to senior executives and boards of directors, a man with unparalleled insight into why some companies are successful and others are not. Together they’ve pooled their knowledge and experience into one guide, explaining in their own voices how to close the gap between results promised and results delivered.

Bossidy and Charan describe the importance of being deeply and passionately engaged in an organization and why robust dialogues about people, strategy, and operations result in a business based on intellectual honesty and realism. EXECUTION shows how to get the job done and deliver results…whether you’re running an entire company or in your first management job.

“A How-To Book for the Can-Do Boss…EXECUTION offers thoughtful questions to consider when building a strategic blueprint… Moreover, Bossidy and Charan boast an impressive enough track record that anyone who wants to stay sharp at the helm will welcome their assistance.” –Business Week
