卡洛斯·戈恩可能是当今世界上最炙手可热的高层管理者之一,商业媒体关于他的传奇故事或者专业杂志上对他的管理方式的分析之多不逊于 1990年代杰克·韦尔奇的鼎盛时期。一向严谨的英国《经济学家》杂志甚至也根据传言称戈恩为“百亿美元男人”,有人说,如果戈恩愿意担任福特或者通用汽车的CEO,那家公司的市值将立刻因此增加一百亿美元。





也许人类的深层心理结构就决定我们容易陷入日常状态和传统智慧之中,而看不到新的可能性,或者不相信新的可能性会成功。日本可能是这种心态最极端的例子, 1999年日本已经在经济低迷中度过了十年,日产公司的债务高达2.1万亿日元,但当戈恩到达日本时,他听到的忠告是“在日本你不能走得太快,不能关闭工厂,不能裁员”,更不用说改变日本公司间交叉持股、效率低下的“企业联盟”(Keiretsu)了。
