The Challenger Spirit:

Organizations that Disturb the Status Quo:


Challenger organisations are those that are disrupting their market, challenging their own habits and taking on dominant competitors. They are typically innovative and radical but what of those that lead them? This book analyzes the practices and disciplines that underpin the successful Challenger organization. In particular it looks at how Challenger leadership and culture can be developed in large, complex, established businesses.

I enjoyed this book, was stimulated, amused and provoked by it. Considering most other business books are not only badly written, but set themselves up as second rate Bibles, I applaud this work. It is a Bible for the flawed but willing. And a record of how these vices can be turned into virtues to the benefit of millions of people.
