Business Politics Advice is a book that puts the businessperson in a great place to make informed decisions about investing and management of their business. The author clearly states the importance of business case studies and corporate leadership in this text. I highly recommend this to any businessperson wanting or needing to become more knowledgeable about how business can be better managed.
Business Politics Advice by Steven J. Rattner covers all areas of business operations, including marketing, sales, finance, public relations, and human resources. The chapters are written in a very logical and practical manner. Each chapter begins with a personal story and then takes readers through the relevant points in a clear and concise manner. Business Politics Advice also has an excellent bibliography, which contains many useful books and articles that the business person might not have access to without this guide. The suggested route for reading the book is from cover to cover, because Rattner breaks down each topic into easily readable sections, and then finishes up with a recommended reading schedule for business people.
If you are a business person who is interested in learning how business can be better managed, this book will provide you with the information you need. Rattner provides clear analysis and recommendations, and he is very skilled when it comes to writing a business language that is easy to understand and relate to. While the book may not be for everyone, if you are someone who is interested in learning how business can be better managed, this is a great read. It may even inspire you to take further study of political issues, if what interests you is politics and how business can be affected by it.
In addition to offering advice on business operations, this text also offers information on leadership for business people. Many business owners believe they possess limited leadership skills. While some do not think they are capable of leadership, it is clear that some people simply do not realize how much the leader of a business affects its performance and success. Rattner provides a helpful set of leadership skills that business owners can use to develop a strong leadership style. The ten strategies he outlines are useful for both small businesses and large corporations, and they can even be used by the individual business owner as well.
In addition to offering practical advice on political issues, The Business Politics Report shows that businesses should also take a look at their own social policies. He writes, “The business that does business the right way is rarely the target of social or political issues. The companies that are doing the most good socially are those that have the most progressive views on business issues.” Rattner even goes as far as to say that the business industry has an influence on the type of government that is in charge. In the report, he states that an organization’s values should be combined with its business model in order to maximize the company’s potential to achieve its goals and influence political issues in the process.
Business Politics Advice is written in a clear, concise manner. It is easy to read and review. Anyone interested in business and its various components will benefit from reading this helpful business person’s advice. Anyone who wants to make a strong business impact on the political landscape should consider using The Business Politics Report as part of his or her business planning and strategy.
