Alexander the Great's Art of Strategy: The Timeless Leadership Lessons of History's Greatest Empire Builder
A rousing biography that shows how to put the tactics and insights of history’s greatest conqueror to work for you.
Throughout the ages, Alexander the Great has been celebrated for building an empire that spanned from Greece to India by the time he was thirty-three. Today he continues to inspire business, government, and military magnates—and leaders from Ted Turner to Norman Schwarzkopf have brought his techniques and vision to boardrooms and battlefields in achieving their success. In Alexander the Great’s Art of Strategy, Partha Bose follows Alexander’s life and military campaigns and shows how you can employ his leadership lessons to conquer today’s challenges in commerce, politics, and life. Bose combines his preeminent knowledge of the business world with his passionate study of Alexander to bring to life case studies of winning corporations—such as Dell, General Electric, and Wal-Mart—that have followed the example of one of history’s greatest leaders.
Part biography and part management guide, Alexander the Great’s Art of Strategyis a compelling and insightful book that should be read by leaders everywhere.
What people are saying - Write a review
bose does a good job in distilling some pearls from alexander the great's formidable c.v. and working it up into broader "management theory" principles. the book should have some appeal to those execs that may want some historical reference points to the cult of leadership in fashion these days - in this respect, the book does not disappoint.
