Descrizione prodotto


Based on extensive and highly personal interviews with forty chief executives around the world-among them GE's Jack Welch, AOL's Steven Case, Intel's Andy Grove, Newscorp's Rupert Murdoch, BP Amoco's John Browne, Nokia's Jorma Olilla, and Toyota's Hiroshi Okuda-The Mind of the CEO takes us on a journey into the innermost thoughts of today's corporate titans and paints a compelling picture of the strategic and daily challenges facing them. Jeffrey Garten's findings are a challenge to those who are suspicious of corporate power, those who believe CEOs should focus only on enriching shareholders, and even to many CEOs who see their jobs much more narrowly. No one interested in the future can afford not to read, think about, and debate this book.


Jeffrey E. Garten is dean of the Yale School of Management. He served as U.S. Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade from 1993 to 1995, and was previously a managing director of the Blackstone Group, a Wall Street investment firm. He is author of A Cold Peace: America, Japan, Germany and the Struggle for Supremacy and has written for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Foreign Affairs, and Harvard Business Review. He and his wife, Ina, live in Connecticut and New York.

2.0 su 5 stelle A Promising Premise that Becomes a Political Platform 5 febbraio 2017
Di Eric Brinson - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
In summary, this book’s relevance is outdated. Additionally, Garten spends the last third of the book pontificating on what social responsibilities with which he believes CEOs should be concerned.

This book never lived up to it promise. The premise of this book has all the potential of being one of the greatest business books of all time. Here, a respected member of the political, business and academic community traveled to meet individually with the titans of industry – and recorded their thoughts, their fears, their thought processes, and their own career stories. Had he accomplished that, this book would have been timeless.

Alas, this book was pre-dotcom fallout, pre-9/11, pre-Enron, pre-smartphone, and pre-financial collapse. Rather than focus on how a CEO’s mind works, he dwelled on how CEOs were wrestling with how to harness the internet in their business.

In the third of three parts, Garten argues that CEOs should be more concerned with social responsibility, and how to impact economic policy on a global stage. As we have seen since 2000, companies whose CEOs are not focused on the success of the business will be adversely impacted. While CEOs of global enterprises may not be able to completely remove themselves from such macro-economic responsibilities, Garten leads the reader to believe that the global CEO should spend the bulk of his/her time on such activities.

There are some nuggets of insight that the reader can take away from the book – the importance of strong virtues, reflections on customer service, and some general leadership insights. The reader would be well-advised to cease reading after the first two parts of the book.

All positive reflections are overshadowed by Garten’s thoughts on what he thinks that CEOs should be concerned with. It is a shame that Garten offers these thoughts as a reflection of what the CEOs did not say. This is an injustice to pitch of this book, as he drifted away from reporting what was truly on the Mind of the CEO.
4.0 su 5 stelle Worth Reading 6 luglio 2001
Di Ghost in the Matrix - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida
The CEO has, for me at least, always been something of a celebrity. I have always wondered what life is like for a person who is responsible for 1000's of jobs and millions of dollars. When we see CEO's on the news, they are a lot like politicians - providing neutral answers to probing questions. This book does what the media fails to do, which is getting this business mavens to talk about real issues concerning their business and society in general. The responses are less formal, more relaxed and appear to be honest. Suprisingly, this book make CEO's appear to be servants of a complex circle of Customers, Employees and Shareholders. Which, I suppose, in the grander scheme of things that is what they are.
The only dissapointment of this book is that 85% of it is the author filling in his own interpretation and editorial comments between actual quotes from the CEO's. It would have been nice if the book was a series of interviews. This would have given readers more objective content and allowed us to decipher the language for ourselves. With only 15% of the reading being actual pull quotes from several CEO's, I would have to say that we only get a small glimpse of the CEO's mind.
But all in all, the author does a great job of posing the right questions to the right people. He certainly has a moral agenda that most of the consumer population would side with. It was nice to know that someone is willing to hold up the mirror of social responsibilty to the business world.

5.0 su 5 stelle Garten's Observations...and a Mandate 26 maggio 2001
Di Robert Morris - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida
In the Introduction, Garten explains that his objective is to share "the most important thoughts that run through the minds of some of the world's leaders as a group. I was looking for patterns from which to draw conclusions, patterns derived from what was said and what wasn't." He interviewed 40 prominent CEOs worldwide who include C. Michael Armstrong (AT&T), Michael Bloomberg (Bloomberg L.P.), Richard Branson, (Virgin Management Ltd.), Stephen M. Case (American Online, Inc.), Michael S. Dell (Dell Computer Corporation), Roger A, Enrico (PepsiCo, Inc.), Andrew S. Grove (Intel Corporation), Rupert Murdoch (The News Corporation Limited), Hiroshi Okuda (Toyota Motor Corporation), Jurgen E. Schrempp (DaimlerChrysler AG), George Soros ((Soros Fund Management LLC.), and John F. Welch, Jr. (General Electric Company). "I tried to come to grips with what I thought of the environment CEOs faced, how they were dealing with it, and what more, if anything, they ought to be doing."
This is a very revealing statement because it correctly suggests that the mind of Jeffrey E. Garten is as much involved in this book as are the minds of those CEOs he interviewed. Indeed, Garten shares several judgments of his own. For example, Garten asserts that global CEOs are not nearly as powerful as many people now assume as they struggle with three kinds of challenges amidst the third industrial revolution: "First, they have their hands full with the central strategic problems of how to take advantage of the Internet and the global economy. Second, they face certain everyday dilemmas of leading and managing corporate Goliaths.. And third, they have roles to play on the world political, economic, and social stage."
In the final chapter, Garten suggests that the three challenges "will be assessed by historians as having been too difficult for most CEOs to successfully handle all at once." This is especially true in larger organizations as their structures become "flatter", as delegation of authority becomes both wider and deeper, as "virtual" operations expand, and as strategic alliances (even with traditional competitors) proliferate. What intrigues me, frankly, is the relevance of the suggestion to owners/CEOs of small-to-midsize companies who, also, find many challenges "too successfully handle all at once." Bennis and others have correctly identified the inadequacies of the authoritarian leadership style. In their book whose title is especially appropriate, O'Dell and Grayson suggest what could be accomplished in collaboration "if only we knew what we know." CEOs in years to come will have (indeed must have) quite different values, perspectives, and mindsets than those which today's CEOs possess. As indicated in what they say and do not say to Garten, many of today's CEOs agree.

1.0 su 5 stelle Mindless CEO is more like it 20 novembre 2001
Di Alessandro Bruno - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida
Somehow a lot of books get published that contain at best useless advice and at worse propaganda that helps to perpetuate the gross inequalities of the American (and evr more so Global) corporate experience. As you read this review, please note that I'm not one of those fanatical, badly dressed, no-taste anti-globalization vandals.
The Mind of the CEO is shallow and this despite the fact that its author, Jeffrey Garten is the dean of the Yale School of management (I suppose i can kiss goodbye to my application for a Yale MBA). At the same time it is telling that much of the obtuse thinking that has invaded management circles in recent decades has roots in the very academic circles that are supposed to enlighten it with something deeper. Gartner interviews 40 of the world's 'top' (you'll gain a renewed appreciation of 'Bottom'when you read what 'top' is) to find out what makes their companies successful. Jack welch (who proves my point further with his new biographical masterpiece Jack), Jurgen Schrempp - an odd choice given his fiasco at Chrysler -, Andy Grove of Intel and other luminaries. The interviws or ' chats' only show how muddy corporate thinking is. Strategy is the most invoked word and none of the 40 stars says anything remotely different from each other. Some of the brilliant nuggets include "Consumers are going to want choices that make sense to them". "The next big step of going global is goping to be be going local". I only wish the CEO's would finally learn where they have to go. Someone should show them the way.
The ultimate and inadvertent message of the book is that CEO's have no more clues about the 'marketplace' than the rest of us and even less about innovations in management thinking. beware the next management technique, mission statement and seminar.
Unfortunately, being unoriginal and offering repackaged stale solutions earns CEO's several dollars and hero status.
