A relentless transformational leader who navigated shifting economic and marketplace realities to reinvent IBM, Louis Gerstner personifies today’s global corporate leader: visionary, strategic, determined and intensely focused. Under his leadership, IBM moved from ailing product manufacturer to innovative service provider, opening up entirely new opportunities for the company.
Lou’s principal belief is that these tumultuous economic times present great opportunities for companies to gain a competitive advantage, and his prescription for pursuing growth and maintaining profitability are straightforward: set strategy, align resources, execute and deal swiftly with the increasingly complex global marketplace.
Lou shares with his audiences the unique challenges and opportunities of today’s global business environment and offers advice based on his extraordinary career. His New York Times best-selling book, “Who Says Elephants Can’t Dance?” (2002), chronicles IBM’s resurgence and provides a thoughtful look at leadership and transformation in action.
