Description - Searching for a Corporate Savior by Rakesh Khurana
Corporate CEOs are headline news. Stock prices rise and fall at word of their hiring and firing. Yet we know surprisingly little about how CEOs are selected and dismissed or about their true power. This is the first book to take us into the world of the CEO selection process. With exceptional clarity and verve, Rakesh Khurana shows that corporations have increasingly sought CEOs who are above all else charismatic, whose fame and force of personality impress analysts and the business media, but whose experience and abilities are not necessarily right for companies' specific needs. The labor market for CEOs, Khurana concludes, is far less rational than we might think.
