In The Silver Lining Anthony argues that while the economic shock of 2008 constitutes the new normal, too many managers are slashing costs indiscriminately.  He says smart managers continue innovating during tough times by stopping ineffective initiatives, changing key business practices, and starting more productive behavior.  The result is the smart managers’ companies emerge from downturns stronger than ever.  Providing a wealth of ideas, tools, and examples from diverse industries, Anthony explains how to safeguard your company’s profitability even during the toughest recessions.Silver Lining
