Confronting Reality will change the way you think about and run your business. It is the first book that shows how to connect the big picture of the new era of business with the nitty-gritty of what to do about it. Through a completely new way to understand and use the business model as the primary tool for confronting reality—a breakthrough that will become the management innovation of this decade—you’ll know sooner rather than later whether your fundamental business premise is under assault, where your best opportunities lie, what you should change and what you should leave alone, and how to realistically plan the future of your business. The fundamentals of how a business makes money are being rapidly and permanently altered by sweeping structural changes. With their extraordinary depth and breadth of experience, Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan are the ideal guides for everyone—entrepreneur, mid-level manager, or CEO—about what is to be done so you can get things right in this challenging, radically changed world. They start by showing you how to understand the most fundamental element of any business: whether you can realistically make the money you hope to in the game you’re playing. Bossidy and Charan show how to use the business model to develop a robust, reality-based process for thinking about the speci'cs of your business in a holistic way. They show how to tie together the financial targets you must meet, the external realities you face, and internal activities such as strategy development, operating tactics, and selection and development of people. Through the lens of the business model, as well as the skillful use of initiatives and development of people with the right leadership characteristics, you’ll see how Robert Nardelli at Home Depot, Jim McNerney at 3M, Dick Harrington at the Thomson Corporation, Michael Wisbrun at KLM, Joseph Tucci at EMC, and John Chambers at Cisco confronted reality. Whether they faced crisis or opportunity, all made the right kinds of changes through a combination of business savvy (the art of understanding the fundamentals driving a business) and business model thinking.… (mer)

This book promotes common sense: stepping out of the center of the activity and asking questions about what you are really doing, really trying to accomplish in your business. It offers some practical and easy enough instructions on how to accomplish this. The overarching concept can be carried into your personal life - setting long term, short term goals and figuring out just how you wish to conduct yourself. ( )

Beschrijving
Het is een veel voorkomende reflex van managers om onheilstijdingen te ontkennen. De onderneming loopt immers voorspoedig? Bossidy en Charan laten in Confrontatie met de realiteit zien hoe belangrijk het is de realiteit tegemoet te treden. Ze presenteren een model voor de analyse van interne en externe ontwikkelingen met als doel tijdig strategische veranderingen in te zetten. De auteurs illustreren de kracht van dit model aan de hand van diverse cases van bedrijven, waaronder: KLM cargo, Thomson Corporation, 3M, Home Depot en Cisco.

Larry Bossidy was CEO van General Electric en Honeywell in Amerika. Ram Charan is een veelgevraagd adviseur van managers.
Beiden schreven verscheidene boeken, waaronder het bij het Spectrum uitgegeven De kunst om dingen gedaan te krijgen.
'Larry Bossidy en Ram Charan brengen wederom licht in de duisternis. Dit is niet slechts een boek met antwoorden. Het is veel waardevoller dan dat. Het maakt duidelijk welke vragen je moet stellen. Confrontatie met de realiteit is een boek dat je moet lezen.' Michael Dell, voorzitter Dell Inc.

Recensie(s)
NBD|Biblion recensie
In hun boek 'Confrontatie met de realiteit' gaan Larry Bossidy en Ram Charan in op aspecten van ondernemerschap en strategie. Terecht stellen zij dat ondernemers te langzaam (en dus te laat) reageren op signalen die duiden op een naderende bedrijfscrisis. Ondernemers hebben angst om te veranderen en weigeren het eigen falen onder ogen te zien. De auteurs wijzen op de beste methoden van diagnostiek, gaan in op de meest voorkomende faalfactoren, bespreken mogelijke (nieuwe) ondernemingsmodellen, de noodzaak van wijzigen en het bepalen van nieuwe strategieen. De auteurs zien kans om de vrij zware en hier en daar toch gecompliceerde materie duidelijk onder woorden te brengen. Het werk is zeer praktisch gericht en bevat bruikbare tips om 'verstarring' (en een crisis) te voorkomen. Daarbij is het boek niet uitsluitend bedoeld voor grote ondernemers; ook MKB-ondernemers kunnen hier hun voordeel mee doen.

An excellent resource for understanding on organizational development and choosing what priorities to execute on.

This is such an appropriate book for these days as we look at American companies from finance through automobile manufacturing in big trouble. What business are you really in...what is the future, not the past. It could also be applied to personal lives as well as business.

Not every Amazon reader liked the book, dismissing it as just safe studies, but some did

An example

Larry Bossidy was legendary at General Electric, Honeywell, and Allied Signal. He and consultant, Ram Charan, have written two books based on his experience and his effectiveness. The first book was Execution: The Art of Getting Things Done. I believe that for most folks, especially in small to mid-size businesses, Confronting Reality is a more effective book. As a consultant and a leadership trainer, I found that confronting reality is one of the things that is very hard to get people to do. As human beings, we seem to be programmed to see the world the way we want it, rather than the way it is. The result is that we need to have some kind of a method for determining what reality is.
