Summary The success of every great company or popular brand is often the vision of a great leader. Here in this book, we profile 100 Great Business Leaders, giving an account of their business career, demonstrating the innovations, opportunities and business principles that have been introduced in their companies. Also included is a practical section to demonstrate how a reader might apply these ideas in their own lives. The 100 chosen business leaders are from companies located all over the world and include a mixture of business founders (for example Henry Ford, Bill Gates, Kiichira Toyoda, Liu Chuanzhi of Lenova) and famous business executives (Jack Welch of GE, Lee Iacocca of Chrysler, Indra Nooyi of Pepsico, Chua Sock Koong of Singapore Telecommunications).--Publisher description.
