Global Advisor to CEOs & Corporate Boards, Bestselling Author

Dr. Ram Charan is a world-renowned business advisor, author and speaker who has spent the past 35 years working with many top companies, CEOs, and boards of our time. In his work with companies including GE, Bank of America, Novartis, Verizon, Aditya Birla Group, Tata Group, Max Group, Yildiz Holdings, UST Global, Fast Retailing (Uniqlo), Longfor and two of the four largest digital companies in China, he is known for cutting through the complexity of running a business in today’s fast changing envi-ronment to uncover the core business problem. His real-world solutions, shared with millions through his books and articles in top business publications, have been praised for being practical, relevant and highly actionable — the kind of advice you can use Monday morning.

Former Chairman of GE Jack Welch says Ram “has the rare ability to distill meaningful from meaningless and transfer it in a quiet, effective way without destroying confidences,” while Ivan Seidenberg, the former CEO of Verizon, calls Ram his “secret weapon.”

Ram has coached more than a dozen leaders who went on to become CEOs, and has served on the boards of Hindalco in India, Emaar, Austin Industries, Tyco Electronics, and Fischer and Porter. His newest book, Talent Wins, co-authored with Dominic Barton and Dennis Carey (Harvard Business Review Press, March 2018), is a guide to radically rethinking the management of talent, because human capability is the ultimate determinant of a company’s success. Especially in this digital age.
