A Pre-eminent authority on leadership, business growth strategies and innovation, Ram is the author of several well received business books, including two of the most important business books of recent times,

Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done (Larry Bossidy, co-author)
gives straight-up advice on how to deliver results, whether you’re running an entire
company or in your first management job.
The key to reliable business performance, says Charan, is consistent practice of the discipline of execution: effectively linking together people, strategy, and operations, the three core processes of every business. Execution reached number one on the Wall Street Journal bestseller list, spent 50 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, and fifteen months on Business Week’s bestseller list.

Confronting Reality: Doing What Matters to Get Things Right (Larry Bossidy, co-author), will change the way you think about and run your business.

The book presents a completely new way to understand and use the business model as the primary tool for confronting business reality, a breakthrough that is destined to become the management innovation of the decade. Business Week named Confronting Reality one of the top ten business books of 2004.
