This issue includes HBR's annual list of breakout ideas covering a wide range of issues, from leadership to research and development. Then, there are two complete articles about the decisions managers face. In the first of these article, authors Joseph Brower and Clark Gilbert explain "How Manager' Everyday Decisions Create or Destroy Your Company's Strategy." Then, "In Praise of the Incompetent Leader," authors Deborah Ancona, Thomas Malone, Wanda Orlikowski, and Peter Senge say it's OK for leaders to not be perfect in every area. Then, in an OnPoint summary of "Cocreating Business' Social Compact," Jeb Brugmann and C.K. Prahalad explain the win-win opportunity when corporations and non-profits work together. Finally, you'll hear executive summaries of the remaining articles from this month's issue of the Harvard Business Review.
