Governance: From rules and budgets to purpose and values 2.

Success: From fixed targets to relative improvement 3. Organization: From centralized functions to customer-oriented teams 4.

Accountability: From narrow targets to holistic success criteria 5.

Trust: From central control to local autonomy 6.

Transparency: From closed information to open book management 7.

Rewards: From individual incentives to team-based reward 8.

Risk: From complying with rules to understanding pressure points This book is about rethinking how we manage organizations in a post-industrial, post credit crunch world where innovative management models represent the only remaining source of sustainable competitive advantage. [i] The changes suggested by the authors will enable and encourage a cultural climate change that will help organizations to attract and keep the best people as well as drive continuous innovation and growth. Above all, The CEO's Dilemma is about learning how to change business - based on best practice and innovation drawn from leaders world-wide who have built and managed successful organizations.
