Show synopsis The cutting-edge management strategies and best-kept secrets taught at Harvard Business School's Advanced Management Programme. Founded during World War II, Harvard Business School's Advanced Management Programme (AMP) originally concentrated on how to utilize the capacities of business and the industrial sector to serve the extraordinary demands of a wartime economy. Now, more than 50 years later, this exhausting 10-week boot camp (six days a week, 14 hours a day) teaches an elite group of business executives how to thrive in the highly combative and competitve global marketplace. This book ushers readers into the inner sanctum of the AMP where they will learn substantial management lessons, including: creating a sustainable competitive advantage; managing for a world of changes yet to come; establishing enduring brand and corporate positioning; negotiating global transactions; and mastering conflict in the global arena. Using profiles, interviews and real-life examples, "Extreme Management" provides the work models, strategic perspectives and visioning excercises that turn good managers into revolutionary managers.
