Insight Stephen Joel Trachtenberg Stephen Joel Trachtenberg · June 14, 2016

In this book, former university president and Rimon Partner Stephen Joel Trachtenberg deeply explores the reasons why universities' presidencies fail and how higher education institutions' leadership can prevent future management failures. 

Mr. Trachtenberg, along with other professors and former chancellors in the higher education arena with whom he has co-authorized this book, meticulously studied and evaluated firsthand testimonies from "derailed" university presidents, case studies, and reviews of the scholarly literature on leadership failures in the public and private sectors. As a result, Presidencies Derailed is an indispensable guide to understand, classify, and explain patterns of direction failures. Learn more about this volume
