JOHN CHAMBERS AND THECISCO WAY: Navigating through Volatility
Under the leadership of CEO John Chambers, Cisco Systems has become one of the world′s leading technology companies. Chambers′s management philosophy and business strategies have allowed Cisco to dominate the computer networking industry and to move into cutting–edge telecommunications markets. In the few short years since Chambers took over as chief executive, the once–invisible "Internet plumbing" supplier has become a household name, and its CEO has emerged as a leading light in high tech.
John Chambers and the Cisco Way: Navigating through Volatility offers an up–close look at the career, philosophy, and vision of one of America′s top CEOs. Through expert insights and extensive interviews of industry analysts, venture capitalists, and Cisco executives, employees, customers, and competitors, this engaging book skillfully explores Chambers′s rise to prominence and the evolution of Cisco Systems.
High–tech reporter and author John Waters traces Chambers′s career from salesman to chief executive, explores his management style, and details his victories and defeats as Chambers steers Cisco through the unpredictable and volatile technology sector.
You′ll see how past business experiences–both good and bad–have shaped the way Chambers manages today, and learn how he keeps Cisco on top by:
∗ Utilizing networking technology to speed processes and slash expenses
∗ Listening to customers to remain competitive in rapidly changing markets
∗ Empowering employees for light–speed decision making
∗ Organizing the company around networks instead of rigid hierarchies
∗ Implementing a proven growth–by–acquisition strategy
∗ Efficiently integrating acquired companies
∗ Aggressively moving into new and broader business segments
More than just a study of key business strategies and best practices, John Chambers and the Cisco Way is the compelling story of a businessman′s personal journey. It is a portrait of a hard–working and innovative executive, perhaps not as well known to the public as his peers, but as influential as anyone in business today.
John Chambers and the Cisco Way gets to the heart of a phenomenon that has taken center stage of world business. Through expert analysis and insight acquired through extensive interviews with venture capitalists and Cisco executives, customers, and competitors, author John Waters skillfully explains the management style of CEO John Chambers and his role in Cisco Systems′ success in the volatile technology sector.
Beyond exploring his key business strategies and management philosophy at Cisco, this book chronicles Chambers′ amazing journey from IBM salesman to Cisco CEO. In just a few short years, Chambers has presided over the creation of more than $480 billion in stockholder value, and has expanded his company into nearly every part of the networking industry. John Waters gives readers an inside look at one of the most successful managers in history and places his story within the current business landscape and market environment, offering new insight into Chambers′ innovative leadership.
