It’s clear from our readers’ comments that, when it comes to navigating bureaucracy, they could use 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.
