Description

Inflation is here. Do you know how it's impacting your
company?
It's not just a matter of rising costs. Inflation eats cash,
squeezes margins, threatens working capital, and throws all your great
forecasts and plans into question. Its effect is cumulative and pervasive. Yet this period of economic discontinuity is a huge opportunity
to come out stronger for those who know how to lead in the face of inflation
and a looming recession.Ram Charan has guided hundreds of companies through many
tough business challenges. In the early 1980s, he helped GE preserve its
teetering credit rating in the face of double-digit inflation. Now, in Leading
Through Inflation
, he brings the same common sense and wisdom that made his
book Execution, coauthored with Larry Bossidy, a long-time New York
Times
bestseller. This book will be your guide to avoiding the hazards of
inflation while positioning your company to thrive when the business cycle
stabilizes. It provides Ram's down-to-earth recommendations and real-world
examples to help you navigate a landscape that may be new to you.


As you learn to lead through inflation, you will be better prepared
for recession and stagflation as well. You will know how to protect your cash,
your customers, and your capital investments. Your psychology will shift from
anxiety and fear to optimism and excitement as you define the path to a
reimagined future.
