Who says elephants can't dance? : inside IBM's historic turnaround by V. Louis Gerstner( Book )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the history of modern business, many companies have gone from being industry leaders to the verge of extinction. Through the heroic efforts of a new management team, some of those companies have even succeeded in resuscitating themselves and living on in the shadow of their former stature. But only one company has been at the pinnacle of an industry, fallen to near collapse, and then, beyond anyone's expectations, returned to set the agenda. That company is IBM. Who says elephants can't dance? tells the story of IBM's competitive and cultural transformation. In his own words, Gerstner offers a blow-by-blow account of his arrival at the company and his campaign to rebuild the leadership team and give the workforce a renewed sense of purpose. In the process, Gerstner defined a strategy for the computing giant and remade the ossified culture bred by the company's own success. The first-hand story of an extraordinary turnaround, a unique case study in managing a crisis, and a thoughtful reflection on the computer industry and the principles of leadership, Who says elephants can't dance? sums up Lou Gerstner's historic business achievement. Taking readers deep into the world of IBM's CEO, Gerstner recounts the high-level meetings and explains the pressure-filled, no-turning-back decisions that had to be made. He also offers his hard-won conclusions about the essence of what makes a great company run

American public education is in crisis. Test scores are dropping. Functional illiteracy in English and mathematics is growing. With a work force lacking high-tech skills, American business and industry are losing the battle for the global marketplace, while on the domestic front, the nation is being split in two between the educated "haves" and the uneducated "have-nots." What is news - exciting, inspiring news - is that something can be done about it. And is being done about it

In 1990, IBM recorded its largest profit in history. By 1993, when Gerstner was hired, however, the computer industry had swept past IBM and the company seemed headed for extinction, a victim of its own lumbering size and rigid corporate culture.

J'ai fait danser un éléphant : l'ancien président d'IBM raconte la renaissance de Big Blue by Louis Gerstner( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in French and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Voici l'histoire de L. Gerstner, président et sauveur d'IBM, qui relate dans ce livre la reprise du géant considéré comme mort et son retour sur le devant de la scène économique mondiale. Quant aux leçons qu'il en tire: se concentrer plus sur l'exécution que sur la vision; savoir quel est son métier et s'y tenir; aligner strictement les procédures; déterminer les principes fondateurs de la culture de l'entreprise et une bonne stratégie. Un bel exemple de redressement d'entreprises, mais aussi le triomphe du pragmatisme face à la course effrénée de la Net économie. [SDM]
