Karren Brady's 10 Rules for Success by Karren Brady HarperCollins (e-book) This motivational book has been organised in the way meetings should: it's to the point and won't take more than an hour of your time. But as readers go through Karren Brady's 10 Rules for Success they will want examples of how these guidelines have helped in deals large and small, for which they can read Strong Woman by the same author. Brady, the former managing director of Birmingham City Football Club and current vice-chairwoman of West Ham United, who is also a novelist and broadcaster, starts with the 'work hard' rule. Nothing will surprise except, perhaps, her belief that her staff would meet her willingly at 3am if she called a meeting. Having the courage to take risks, knowing how to negotiate, communicating clearly and planning to win are some of the categories that follow. Brady writes that her organisations are run with 'military precision'. The most interesting revelation is that she sets up cost committees in which the expenditure of senior staff members is watched by less senior employees, and the committee earns a bonus based on a percentage of the savings made.
