Publisher's Summary

The greatest change in business history is happening right now. What are you going to do about it?
The tilt
1. The shift in business and economic power from countries of the north to the fast-developing markets and economies of the south - not only China, India and Brazil, but also the Middle East and parts of Africa. 2. The result of unstoppable forces, including the volatile global financial system, digitization, the rise of state capitalism and a new global middle class that is both youthful and urban- forces by which industries and economies rapidly emerge and change the global playing field. 3. A call to abandon old assumptions and rules of thumb about the North and South, and the opening of mega-opportunities for leaders who learn to see the world not just from the vantage point of New York but also from that of Beijing, Mumbai, Singapore, and Sao Paulo.
Ram Charan has spent more time anyone else on the ground observing and analyzing the tilt. Here he gives business leaders the tools to detect trends that cut across not just industries but also countries, rethink the economic and business principles they rely on, and adapt to the speed of innovation and unprecedented needs of the new global economy. With Global Tilt, he provides the essential, practical playbook for strategizing and succeeding in a tilted world.


What the Critics Say

"Ram is a gifted visionary who is above all a pragmatist. He knows that the pathway from the possible to reality is not linear, but one of applied imagination and strategic leaps. In Global Tilt, Ram teaches us that unlearning is essential to new learning, with many examples that will both inspire and educate even the most seasoned business leader." (Inge Thulin, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO, 3M Company)
“A timely and insightful call to establishment leaders to rethink the world business equation. Charan encourages leaders of the North to strategize and operate with a different and more realistic mind set if they are to counter the thrust of exuberant, ever more affluent and confident leaders of the South. A must read for those seeing a more growth orientated future.” (Larry Bossidy, former Chairman and CEO of Honeywell)
“Global Tilt is more than just a crisp and insightful look at the North to South power-shift taking place in the world today. It’s a brilliantly crafted managerial and strategy blueprint for leaders of businesses and organizations that are trying to make sense of this dynamic new landscape. This is Ram and his sharp strategic acumen at his very best. No CEO’s library should be without it.” (Muhtar Kent, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of The Coca-Cola Company)
