About this Book

Can technical paradigms help managers lead technical companies? Bertrand Liang says they can, and in this short book he explores real issues of importance for technical students and managers who want to move into leadership positions. A CEO with an MBA, originally trained as a neurology and oncology clinician (MD) and who later earned a Ph.D. in molecular biology and genetics, he emphasizes what he wishes he had known as he advanced through the organization. His practitioner’s point of view is perfectly suited to those who are moving, or want to move, from the technical side to the business side. Focusing on the experiences of scientists and engineers, he teaches ways to speak top management’s language. His insights deliver essential knowledge, empowering technical staff to succeed with the skills they know best.
