The definitive biography of the most important economic statesman of our time Sebastian Mallaby's magisterial biography of Alan Greenspan, the product of over five years of research based on untrammeled access to his subject and his closest professional and personal intimates, brings into vivid focus the mysterious point where the government and the economy meet. To understand Greenspan's story is to see the economic and political landscape of the last 30 years--and the presidency from Reagan to George W. Bush--in a whole new light. As the most influential economic statesman of his age, Greenspan spent a lifetime grappling with a momentous shift: the transformation of finance from the fixed and regulated system of the post-war era to the free-for-all of the past quarter century. The story of Greenspan is also the story of the making of modern finance, for good and for ill. Greenspan's life is a quintessential American success story: raised by a single mother in the Jewish émigré community of Washington Heights, he was a math prodigy who found a niche as a stats-crunching consultant. A master at explaining the economic weather to captains of industry, he translated that skill into advising Richard Nixon in his 1968 campaign. This led to a perch on the White House Council of Economic Advisers, and then to a dazzling array of business and government roles, from which the path to the Fed was relatively clear. A fire-breathing libertarian and disciple of Ayn Rand in his youth who once called the Fed's creation a historic mistake, Mallaby shows how Greenspan reinvented himself as a pragmatist once in power. In his analysis, and in his core mission of keeping inflation in check, he was a maestro indeed, and hailed as such. At his retirement in 2006, he was lauded as the age's necessary man, the veritable God in the machine, the global economy's avatar. His memoirs sold for record sums to publishers around the world. But then came 2008. Mallaby's story lands with both feet on the great crash which did so much to damage Alan Greenspan's reputation. Mallaby argues that the conventional wisdom is off base: Greenspan wasn't a naïve ideologue who believed greater regulation was unnecessary. He had pressed for greater regulation of some key areas of finance over the years, and had gotten nowhere. To argue that he didn't know the risks in irrational markets is to miss the point. He knew more than almost anyone; the question is why he didn't act, and whether anyone else could or would have. A close reading of Greenspan's life provides fascinating answers to these questions, answers whose lessons we would do well to heed. Because perhaps Mallaby's greatest lesson is that economic statesmanship, like political statesmanship, is the art of the possible. The Man Who Knew is a searching reckoning with what exactly comprised the art, and the possible, in the career of Alan Greenspan.

"Superbosses is the rare business book that is chock full of new, useful, and often unexpected ideas. After you read Finkelstein's well-crafted gem, you will never go about leading, evaluating, and developing talent in quite the same way."-Robert Sutton, author of Scaling Up Excellence and The No Asshole Rule "Maybe you're a decent boss. But are you a superboss? That's the question you'll be asking yourself after reading Sydney Finkelstein's fascinating book. By revealing the secrets of superbosses from finance to fashion and from cooking to comic books, Finkelstein offers a smart, actionable playbook for anyone trying to become a better leader."-Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell Is Human and Drive A fascinating exploration of the world's most effective bosses-and how they motivate, inspire, and enable others to advance their companies and shape entire industries, by the author of How Smart Executives Fail. A must-read for anyone interested in leadership and building an enduring pipeline of talent. What do football coach Bill Walsh, restauranteur Alice Waters, television executive Lorne Michaels, technol­ogy CEO Larry Ellison, and fashion pioneer Ralph Lauren have in common? On the surface, not much, other than consistent success in their fields. But below the surface, they share a common approach to finding, nurturing, leading, and even letting go of great people. The way they deal with talent makes them not merely success stories, not merely organization builders, but what Sydney Finkelstein calls superbosses. After ten years of research and more than two hundred interviews, Finkelstein-an acclaimed professor at Dartmouth's Tuck School of Business, speaker, and executive coach and consultant-discovered that superbosses exist in nearly every industry. If you study the top fifty leaders in any field, as many as one-third will have once worked for a superboss. While superbosses differ in their personal styles, they all focus on identifying promising newcomers, inspiring their best work, and launching them into highly successful careers-while also expanding their own networks and building stronger companies. Among the practices that distinguish superbosses: They Create Master-Apprentice Relationships. Superbosses customize their coaching to what each protégé really needs, and also are constant founts of practical wisdom. Advertising legend Jay Chiat not only worked closely with each of his employees but would sometimes extend their discussions into the night. They Rely on the Cohort Effect. Superbosses strongly encourage collegiality even as they simultaneously drive internal competition. At Lorne Michaels's Saturday Night Live, writers and performers are judged by how much of their material actually gets on the air, but they can't get anything on the air without the support of their coworkers. They Say Good-Bye on Good Terms. Nobody likes it when great employees quit, but super­bosses don't respond with anger or resentment. They know that former direct reports can become highly valuable members of their network, especially as they rise to major new roles elsewhere. Julian Robertson, the billionaire hedge fund manager, continued to work with and invest in his former employees who started their own funds. By sharing the fascinating stories of superbosses and their protégés, Finkelstein explores a phenomenon that never had a name before. And he shows how each of us can emulate the best tactics of superbosses to create our own powerful networks of extraordinary talent.

The book is aimed primarily at employees in the finance, controlling, planning and IT departments. Likewise to Business experienced IT and Business Consultant.As with most software implementations, implementing or moving to Business Process and Consolidation (BPC), an SAP application for financial planning and consolidation, requires more than just technical know-how. Although the big beneficiaries of the BPC implementation are financial planners, controllers and analysts, the success (or failure) of many other actors is influenced by the implementation of SAP BPC. It should be clear to all involved that BPC can not equate a SEM-BCS system with its professional versatility. This primarily relates to the IFRS-compliant consolidation application in the daily FAST CLOSING PROCESS in legal and management consolidation. In addition, support for the SAP application SEM-BCS is more effective than the limited support / support resources at SAP BPC.In large corporations, a combined application of SEM-BCS with BPC is performed, which is an optimal complement between actual consolidation and planning / budgeting.To what extent in the future in a cloud landscape an effective integration of the components S / 4HANA, BPC, IP and SEM-BCS respectively BOFC successfully designed the FAST CLOSING PROCESS will depend to a great extent on the know-how of the business consultant, IT colleagues, users and SAP support.This book is your comprehensive guide to setting up standard and embedded SAP BPC. Preview Real-Time Consolidation and see how to migrate to SAP BPC 10.1 to stay on the cutting edge of SAP BPC.Application examples show the handling and setting of the following functions-Implement standard and embedded SAP BPC-Set up consolidation: ownership, intercompany eliminations, journal entries.....-Standard and embedded SAP BPC-Reporting-Data loading-Forecasting, planning-Consolidation-SAP HANA-Data Manager-Migration-Real-Time Consolidation

“The most important leadership tool you have is not your education, your experience, or your know-how. It’s your heart. In this book, Mark provides a clear prescription for using yours to become the kind of leader people want to follow.” —Michael Hyatt, New York Times bestselling author and former CEO, Thomas Nelson Inc. “Mark once again demonstrates the power of a simple story well told. The Heart of Leadership will serve leaders around the world for decades to come.” —Dr. Henry Cloud, leadership consultant, psychologist, and bestselling author of Boundaries and Necessary Endings “ The Heart of Leadership is a delightfully surprising read. Mark Miller’s wisdom shines in his ability to convey profound truths simply and clearly. This book propels leadership beyond strategies and techniques to its most authentic form—who you are.” —Dan Rockwell, author and owner of the Leadership Freak blog, consultant, and pastor “Mark Miller has crafted a masterwork. Too many books on leadership are about selfishly getting ahead. This book addresses the leader’s heart. By addressing the heart, you do get ahead, but it’s a more satisfying journey.” —Nancy Duarte, author of Resonate and CEO, Duarte Designs “This book will help you reach your leadership potential, espousing good principles that most learn only through the school of hard knocks—and many never learn at all.” —Ron Wallace, former President, UPS International “Mark Miller has done it again! Another outstanding book—this time on the most important aspect of leadership: who you are as a leader. If you focus only on skills, you are ignoring 90 percent of what makes a great leader. —Jesse Lyn Stoner, coauthor of the international bestseller Full Steam Ahead! “ The Heart of Leadership addresses the primary stumbling block for leaders – themselves!   If you want to improve how you lead others, you must first improve how you lead yourself. This great little book shows you how. —Daniel S. Harkavy, CEO and Executive Coach, Building Champions, Inc. ' The Heart of Leadership extends and deepens the bestselling leadership models pioneered by Mark Miller.  This book is clear, compelling, and of real practical value. Keep it on hand  -- a small investment of time will yield a lifetime of dividends, in life as well as career.  —Jeff Rosensweig, Associate Professor of International Business and Finance and Director of Emory University’s Goizueta Business School and Global Perspectives Program ‘There's a difference between potential leaders with raw talent and great leaders with real influence. Mark's book reveals the foundational difference -- it's all about leadership character.” —Tony Morgan, author, Chief Strategic Officer and founder of TonyMorganLive.com “Mark Miller’s The Heart of Leadership immediately creates a place for personal discovery. As I read each page, I was no longer thinking of  “Blake” the main character, but myself. Blake’s journey of discovery became my own. This is about the “life” of leadership and how it reaches within and without having profound and long-lasting impact. It’s about being unselfishly driven and highly motivated. It is about how others within the workplace and within our lives benefit from our personal resolve to lead from the perspective that others matter.” —Clifton L. Taulbert, Author of Eight Habits of the Heart and President, The Freemount Corporation/Building Community Institute “There are so many buzzwords in business that claim to be the answer to all leadership woes. The truth is that leadership is all about the people, and to have success with people, read The Heart of Leadership, and watch your leadership soar to a whole new level.” —Todd Nielsen, author and COO
