They are maxims of the successful corporate leader: good managers always focus on their companies, never on themselves; good managers view themselves as being servants to, rather than masters of, the whole; and good managers run their businesses with the goal of achieving long-term success, not as if their companies were short-term profit-generating machines. In this collection, Fredmund Malik and Farsam Farschtschian focus on one exemplary manager: Helmut Maucher, the former Nestlé CEO who turned his company into a powerful global enterprise without being distracted by passing fads. The resulting book—a combination of interviews, essays, and other works by Maucher—offers a unique exchange of ideas between three of the world’s corporate management pioneers.
