RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- "Business is simple, until academics or consultants make it complicated," is what Chris J. Stern, Chairman and CEO of the Institute for Efficient Management has been preaching as a management philosophy since 1996. Chris is also famous for stating that, "if you need a calculator to determine if a business proposal is a great opportunity - guess what, it most probably isn't."
As an entrepreneur and senior executive Stern has seen the many upsides and downsides of business. He has occupied CEO positions in several industries and even listed one company on two major stock exchanges during the same year. While most of Stern's experiences have been most rewarding and successful, there were downsides as well and we all know that we learn most from those.
"I believe that this interactive web book is an ideal hybrid of hard-core business administration knowledge enriched with real life experience", Stern said. And added "With my web book I hope to contribute to much needed innovation in business administration – typically business gurus talk about the latest and greatest examples and then traditionally go on to publish their wisdom in the next paper edition of their book."
The web book will be a continuous work in progress and in contrast to paper publications, the author can add and change content based on reader's input, or updated knowledge. The first chapter is called "Pragmatic Strategizing" and is available for immediate reading at http://www.bizissimple.com. Every chapter comes with a downloadable presentation and the author plans to add video sequences in the near future. Until further notice, access to the site is free of charge.
