About the Summary

Geoff Colvin, one of America’s most respected business journalists, says even the scariest recession has an upside. The best managers know conventional thinking won’t help them win in these tough times. They’re taking smart, practical steps that will not only keep them strong, but will also distance them from the pack for years to come. In his latest work, Colvin, author of the bestselling Talent is Overrated, offers ten solidly grounded strategies that will increase your company’s competitiveness and build its long-term value.

In This Summary, You Will Learn:

  • That the structure of industries will change profoundly as various players disappear and others transform themselves.
  • The 6 key categories that shape performance and viability.
  • The true costs of layoffs and whether they will actually get you the benefits you’re counting on.
  • A new way to think through your strategy and business model during a recession.
