Essential Reading for All Australians in Business.
The appointments of Frank Blount to Telstra and Bob Joss to Westpac in the early 1990s signalled a new era in Australian business - a period when the business community looked outside its own ranks for leadership and performance. Each appointment was to prove immensely successful.
But who are these men who were lured from senior positions in two of America's largest companies to transform two of Australia's key institutions. How did they do it? What did they learn? And what did Australians learn from them?
'Managing In Australia' is Blount's and Joss's own account of what they accomplished, the cultural differences they observed between American and Australian business practices and their own learning in how to manage in light of those difference.
Essential reading for all Australians in business - from the self employed to the corporate executive - this book gives examples of strategy, teambuilding, communication, management and leadership in action.
