| book description |

Written by one of Britain's most respected financial commentators, 'What Works' is a fascinating study of success in different countries, on different continents and in a mixture of the public, private and voluntary sectors. Calling on years of experience as an award-winning financial journalist, Hamish McRae brings a fresh perspective to the question of success, exploring the 'big ideas' and what it is that distinguishes them in an increasingly competitive global marketplace. Through an extraordinary range of case studies, including Ikea and the slums of Mumbai, McRae demonstrates that although there is no surefire recipe for success, there are several key ingredients which ambitious readers can apply to their own business practices. Each case study is based around an on-site visit by the author and interviews with the people in charge, offering readers the chance to learn from some of the grandest economic successes and unexpected failures in the world today. Compelling and important, 'What Works' inspires businesses, governments and professional communities to learn from one another.
