    If you liked the original "Winning", you'll like this too. The same no fluff, straightforward approach to business topics. Good variation of questions, answers contain both familiar and new perspectives. If you liked the original "Winning", you'll like this too.

    Short but concise summary to the common questions asked in the business world. However, I find the contents of this book a bit general.

This book: “Winning: The Answers – Confronting 74 of the toughest questions in business today” contains some of the most relevant of questions asked. As Jack Welch on his website emphasizes: Winning is great! The 74 questions and answers are contained in six sections. Section 1, deals with ‘Global competition’; section 2 with ‘Leadership’; section 3 with ‘Management Principles and Practices’; section 4 with ‘Careers’; section 5 is titled ‘Privately held” and deals with working for the family; lastly section 6 covers ‘Winning and Losing’. The courage to become a change agent’ was my favourite read, in section 2. This was in response to a question raised by a newly appointed head of a learning and development department and he had to make some tough choices to usher in change. Jack and Suzy Welch point out to the three critical organisational components: an inspirational mission; a clear set of values and rigorous appraisal system. If it applied to a department catering to learning and development, it applies equally well to a service industry – to us. However, a word of caution, as also provided by the authors – Make sure your reasons for the change initiative are transparent to everyone, be it something as simple as a new process for drafting audit working papers or client conference notes. And finally, don’t lose faith along the way. Some people will resist change. They always do. But as soon as results start rolling in, your new approach will make its own case, loud and clear.

    Book contains very good brief answers for Frequently Asked Questions by many people (businessmen, students, analysts etc.,). This will be very much useful for MBA students since these are matching to present scenario than the academic book case discussions. Quite good. REcommend to everyone who pursues Business, Marketing, Finance etc., Also for first line of managers who are in with market.

    sure, this book has tons of great tips and advice on how to manage working in companies of all types however it's not really a book that you read cover to cover. it's more of a resource book that you reference from time to time. Reading it from cover to cover will certainly be a boring read sure, this book has tons of great tips and advice on how to manage working in companies of all types however it's not really a book that you read cover to cover. it's more of a resource book that you reference from time to time.
