Product description

From the Back Cover

"Nokia's recent transformation is one of the most dramatic corporate makeovers in modern history. Written like a thriller, Risto's story takes us through the events that took place behind the scenes. His thoughtful reflections provide tangible lessons for any leader." -Rich Lesser, CEO, The Boston Consulting Group
"Transforming Nokia is a must-read for business leaders as it serves as both a warning and a practical playbook on how to identify and act on threats and opportunities. Risto provides an honest and mesmerizing first-person view of the dramatic collapse and rebirth of an iconic company. Buy copies for your executives and board members to kickstart the discipline of being 'paranoid optimists.'" --Charlene Li, bestselling author of Groundswell and Open Leadership
"Transforming Nokia is a personal and powerful story of one of the most challenging and remarkable turnarounds in corporate history: the rebirth of Nokia. In times of continuous change the book is an inspiring reminder for leaders to constantly challenge assumptions, look for opportunities ahead, stay open minded and lead with an entrepreneurial mindset - no matter how successful the company is."--Jim Hagemann Snabe, chairman of Siemens and Maersk, former co-CEO of SAP, author of "Dreams & Details
"Real leadership lessons aren't taught in class; they're learned under fire. In Transforming Nokia, Risto Siilasmaa vividly recounts how he and his team took an iconic company on the brink of collapse and brought it back to be a global leader in a new industry. It's a remarkable tale, rich with hard-won, practical insights on crisis management, restoring trust, the centrality of culture - and the power of 'paranoid optimism.'"--Dominic Barton, Global Managing Partner, McKinsey & Company
"This is a captivating tale of how one of the world's most innovative companies transformed itself once again. Risto Siilasmaa's accomplishments at Nokia should inspire businesses everywhere that need to undergo dramatic change."--Adi Ignatius, Editor-in-Chief, Harvard Business Review
