Sir John Harvey-Jones is one of the best-known and admired industrialists in the world, and his achievements at ICI are a legendary feat. But how was that giant company salvaged from its disastrous slump and transformed into one of Britain's best-run companies? Reflecting on his years as chairman of ICI, and on his experience of leadership in the Royal Navy, Harvey-Jones offers a wealth of knowledge and common-sense advice on all aspects of business life and management. In particular, he demonstrates how a people-centred philosophy is essential for a company to excel.
