Would you consider the audio edition of Winning to be better than the print version?

I would not say that this is better than the print version, however is a great addition. As it really compliments the print version really well.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jack Welch who is at the heart of this. It is about his views on winning, so intrinsically he is at the heart of this

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I think it was the overall essence of book ...which is a simple concept around winning. I personally like how well it is structured. It is simple and easy to understand.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The section on leadership and how to work though difficult times, like working for a bad boss.

Any additional comments?

It is a good book that is brought to life the simplicity of some business issues. Winning is not easy there are some easy rules that one needs to follow. Overall the book was insightful and inspiring.

The audio that shows how to get the job done and deliver results...whether you're running an entire company or in your first management job. Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan, who Jack Welch calls "a great practitioner and an insightful theorist," collaborate on a "compelling business story of 'how to get it done.'"

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The basic premise is one of companies that thrive do so because they are able to execute outcomes better. This is sound in itself.

What did you like best about this story?

Talks about the 3 interlinking parts of execution, which is the strategy process, the people process and the operations process. I liked how the three fit each other and how the should ideally reinforce one another for best effect.

Have you listened to any of John Bedford Lloyd’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is the first one of John that I have heard. He was really good. The books also had inputs from Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan. Sadly Ram's voice was not the easiest to follow.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

This is a business book so not going to be moved by it. However I really enjoyed the letter to a new leader at the end.

Any additional comments?

Overall a good however most of the examples where from the late 90s and early 2000s. Would have liked to have had some new examples.
