Synopsis:

When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground.

You may think that Game of Thrones is a story as far removed from modern business as is possible, but look a little closer and you'll notice that the differences are merely superficial: that hostile small council meeting is a boardroom showdown, Daenerys Targaryen is the business ingenue you can't afford to disregard and the White Walkers are a slowly advancing threat to your company's survival.

We have always learned through stories, and here readers are enlightened by parellels drawn between Game of Thrones and today's business world. The authors also use examples from the series to breathe life into management theory. Inside you will discover:

  • What Tywin Lannister has in common with Steve Jobs;
  •  
  • Why Ned Stark should have had a scenario-planning meeting;
  •  
  • What Daenerys Targeyen can teach us about servant leadership;
  •  
  • How to network like Littlefinger;
  •  
  • Why behaving like Jon Snow will just antagonise your boss.

If you've ever wondered how Tyrion Lannister would fare in the boardroom or what it would be like to have Stannis Baratheon as a boss, this is the book for you.
