The FT has an interesting new blog written by:
Don Sull, who is professor of management practice in strategic and international management, and faculty director of executive education at London Business School. His next book, The Upside of Turbulence comes out in October 2009. This blog is dedicated to helping entrepreneurs, managers, and outside directors to lead more effectively in a turbulent world.
Over the past decade, Prof Sull has studied volatile industries including telecommunications, airlines, fast fashion, and information technology, as well as turbulent countries including Brazil and China, and found specific behaviours that consistently differentiate more, and less, successful firms. His conclusion is that actions, not an individual’s traits, increase the odds of success in turbulent markets, and these actions can be learned.
The posts to date indicate that this is worth following on a regular basis.
