ALIGNING THE STARS: Organizing Professionals to Win

Jay William Lorsch, Author, Thomas J. Tierney, Joint Author . Harvard Business School $29.95 (240p) ISBN 978-1-57851-513-4

Focusing on the sector of professional service firms (including ad agencies, law firms, executive search firms, tech service providers, strategy consultants and more), Harvard Business School professor Lorsch and consultant Tierney explain how to manage talent for success. The authors examine 18 organizations, from Goldman Sachs to Ogilvy & Mather, to show readers how "alignment" (organizing a firm's talent) results from leadership and its implementation. Professional service firms are a major component of business today, making the market for Lorsch and Tierney's book a substantial one. Their suggestions are timely and specific. (Apr. 26)
