Ram Charan is one of the leading experts in the world today in advising businesses. Frankly, he is in the rarified Air with Buffett and Drucker IMHO. He isn't boisterous, he isn't a Hacksaw sort of guy, he isn't a guru. He IS someone that lets you see past where your focus usually is.
As you can see I am a big fan. Yahoo ran a series with Ram called "What Every Company Should Know." Given that most reading this run a blog, which IS a business if you have ads up!
I really how Ram breaks down topics that feel huge to great bite-sized morsels that you can really learn from. My favorite in the series was, "The Basics of Money Making" where Ram takes you through all what is takes to make money. And really whether you are a business or an individual, there are great lessons here.
Read and Enjoy!
