This supplementary chapter includes case studies of 12 successful executives to illustrate through real-life examples how the truly exceptional go about navigating their careers. Based on extensive interviews with each of the subjects, the case studies are presented in the same format but are all remarkably varied in their content, providing a final flourish that well and truly proves the point that following the car in front is not the way to go if you want to have a successful executive career. The subjects of the case studies are Alan Jope, Gavin Patterson, John Smith, Jonathan Lewis, Roger Davis, Stephen Carter, Stevie Spring, Zillah Byng-Thorne, Guy Laurence, June Felix, William Eccleshare, and Melanie Smith.
