Who Really Matters
The Core Group Theory of Power, Priviledge, and Success
About the Summary
While Enron, Tyco and others have given the concept of the Core Group a bad name, bestselling author Art Kleiner explains in Who Really Matters that companies need Core Groups to supply the energy and direction they require to be successful. By observing the Core Group’s members’ day-to-day activities, communications and management decisions, Kleiner argues that the astute employee can recognize decisions before they are made, and can be ready to react to change. Eventually, if that person is able to navigate to a position of influence, he or she can join the Core Group.
