While Andrew Kakabadse, a professor with an experience in governance and leadership interviewed people from over eighty of the top organizations that were leading the world, he came across some facts that were indeed surprising, to him and now to his readers. He found that not all organizations that had the greatest engagement of stakeholders had the most powerful and charismatic leaders behind them. So what was it that led them to be so engaging to stakeholders? These organizations were led by value. The leaders of such organizations would determine their value after taking a look at all they evidence they collect from all stakeholders; internal as well as external. They then detect the challenges after which they come out with a strategy to make themselves more engaging. The other kind of organization that Kakbadse found was that which was led by strategy. Here, all that the management does is create a strategy based on their opinion of creating value. What the author shows us in this book is how the former kind of organization works better.
