More and more you get to hear about an organization ground to a halt, mass firings or suddenly realize that you did not hear from a well established company for a while only to find out the company is gone. I believe most of the firing could have been avoided and the companies could still be here if they had the information contained in this book. It will help you to both identify problems in your organization and tackling them.

There are only two kinds of people on this earth. Those who want to think outside the box, and those who do not want to. This book is meant for the former.

On popular demand by the reviewers – here is one-page summary for the CEOs, and a link to a quick survey they can ask their team to do.
At its core, the message of this book is very simple. As a CEO or senior executive, you already know how much effort every company puts into selecting the very best people they can find – whether in sales, marketing, finance, operations or any other part of the company. Having recruited them, every company puts equally sterling effort in training these people to enable them to do their job.
Finally, every company equips these people with the best possible tools – whether in IT, or other arena – that they can find in the market place. At an immense expense, these tools are configured, customized and enhanced to suit the company strategy.
Yet, when they look at the results – profits, revenues, customer satisfaction – most CEOs privately express a view that they are not getting the full value for their investments and efforts described above.
Why do companies perform less than optimally, despite such massive advantage? Why do CFOs have to regularly ‘massage’ the numbers at the end of every quarter? What are the invisible chains that hold back these companies?
If you are one of the target readers, but are fully convinced that these invisible chains do not exist in your company, I invite you to take the complementary survey at this link: www.unchainyourcorporation.com/survey. You may be surprised by the result.
If you are already aware of these invisible chains then I am sure you are also asking the key question – what to do about these? How to break these chains apart and build strong business-to-business networks that will help your company survive through downturns and thrive through upturns. That, indeed, is the core message of this book.
