Ram Charan Wants to Help

Posted by: Jena McGregor on July 10, 2008


Think you could use some tips from a pro? Seek no further. BusinessWeek has enlisted the noted author, professor, and business consultant Ram Charan to help you chart a course through corporate quicksand.

Post your questions here and Ram will answer them as part of BusinessWeek’s upcoming double issue “Business@Work.”

Don’t hold back; let him know what’s really on your mind. Confused about whether to stay in a maddening maze of process? Ask him how you know when it’s time to go. Frustrated by layers of management that make it hard to be heard? Ask him how you circumvent middle managers to get noticed. It’s all fair game. Leave your questions in the comments section below.

I am in the field of Logistics and Supply Chain focussed mostly on systems, processes and strategy. Being a generation Y, i find my work place pretty old schooled even though it is a Fortune 70 company. Even though the middle management talks about listening to employees, promoting top talent from inside etc etc, i find it hard to get my voice across when i like to use my experience in optimization and cutting costs. How would you approach a situation where you would like to bring your skill set & experience to the table and try to grow inside the company, but the various layers of management discourage the interest.When is it time to move on ?
