American icon : Alan Mulally and the fight to save Ford Motor Company by Bryce G Hoffman( Book )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the end of 2008, Ford Motor Company was just months away from running out of cash. With the auto industry careening toward ruin, Congress offered all three Detroit automakers a bailout. General Motors and Chrysler grabbed the lifeline, but Ford decided to save itself. Under the leadership of charismatic CEO Alan Mulally, the man who had saved Boeing, Ford had put together a bold plan to unify its divided global operations, transform its lackluster product lineup, and overcome a dysfunctional culture of infighting, backstabbing, and excuses. It was an extraordinary risk, but it was the only way America's last great industrial dynasty could hold on to their company. Mulally and his team pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in business history, and this is the behind-the-scenes account of that epic turnaround.--From publisher description

Red teaming : how your business can conquer the competition by challenging everything by Bryce G Hoffman( Recording )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Red Teaming is a revolutionary new way to make critical and contrarian thinking part of the planning process of any organization, allowing companies to stress-test their strategies, flush out hidden threats and missed opportunities and avoid being sandbagged by competitors. Today, most--if not all--established corporations live with the gnawing fear that there is another Uber out there just waiting to disrupt their industry. Red Teaming is the cure for this anxiety. The term was coined by the U.S. Army, which has developed the most comprehensive and effective approach to Red Teaming in the world today in response to the debacles of its recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. However, the roots of Red Teaming run very deep: to the Roman Catholic Church's "Office of the Devil's Advocate," to the Kriegsspiel of the Prussian General Staff and to the secretive AMAN organization, Israel's Directorate of Military Intelligence. In this book, author Bryce Hoffman shows business how to use the same techniques to better plan for the uncertainties of today's rapidly changing economy. Red Teaming is both a set of analytical tools and a mindset. It is designed to overcome the mental blind spots and cognitive biases that all of us fall victim to when we try to address complex problems. The same heuristics that allow us to successfully navigate life and business also cause us to miss or ignore important information. It is a simple and provable fact that we do not know what we do not know. The good news is that, through Red Teaming, we can find out. In this book, Hoffman shows how the most innovative and disruptive companies, such as Google and Toyota, already employ some of these techniques organically. He also shows how many high-profile business failures, including those that sparked the Great Recession, could easily have been averted by using these approaches. Most importantly, he teaches leaders how to make Red Teaming part of their own planning process, laying the foundation for a movement that will change the way America does business
Red teaming : transform your business by thinking like the enemy by Bryce G Hoffman( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ingenious and counterintuitive practice of red teaming has its origins in the military, and involves creating a group of devil's advocates to think like the enemy, challenge existing assumptions within an organisation and find holes in its strategy. It's a powerful cure for groupthink, tunnel vision and failures of imagination, aliments that have transformed many once-great corporations into the walking dead of the business world. Red teaming will provide readers with a guide to the core techniques of red teaming as well as its history and fascinating real-world examples. It will teach businesses how to challenge the conventions of their industry like an innovative disruptor would, and spot threats while there is still time to respond to them, creating a culture in which challenges are not only tolerated, but valued
