Welch: An American Icon

توضیحات

Praise for Welch: An American Icon

"Welch: An American Icon is a thoroughly researched addition to your business library. No matter how much you have read about Welch, you will certainly learn something new by reading this book."
-George Eckes, Management Consultant and author of The Six Sigma Revolution: How General Electric and Others Turned Process into Profits

"Janet Lowe has written a fascinating and rewarding book . . . Welch is more than an icon. Lowe has identified Welch's dynamic, rhythmic, and forward-looking, yet sometimes turbulent legacy, for many generations to come. That legacy sets forth basic principles, structures, and constructs for a twenty-first-century multinational industrial corporation that operates globally to facilitate the rate of change in zero time for shared and equitable prosperity at home and abroad."
-Dr. George Kozmetsky
Executive Associate for Economic Affairs
The University of Texas System


JANET LOWE is the bestselling author of several business books including Damn Right!: Behind the Scenes with Berkshire Hathaway Billionaire Charlie Munger (Wiley) and Value Investing Made Easy. Formerly the financial editor of the San Diego Tribune, she has written more than 200 business articles for such publications as Newsweek, the Christian Science Monitor, and the Los Angeles Times.
