NEW YORK, Nov. 3, 2014 / PRNewswire — The Center for Global Enterprise (CGE) today announces the global distribution of Re-Think: A Path to the Future, originally released in April of this year by Sam Palmisano, former CEO and Chairman of IBM. The CGE is a nonprofit organization devoted to helping business leaders worldwide establish best management practices for leading a globally integrated enterprise (GIE). Re-Think outlines the core operating elements of the GIE, the opportunities carried by a global economy, and the most pressing challenges faced by today’s business world. Drawing from Palmisano’s experiences at IBM and the lessons learned at overseeing one of the world’s largest global integration processes, the book serves as an important educational tool for those interested in contemporary management practices in an era of globalization and transparency.
