Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gary Hamel, world-renowned business thinker and coauthor of Competing for the Future, the book that set the management agenda for the 1990s, now delivers an agenda for the twenty-first century with the national bestseller, Leading the Revolution. Fully revised with a new introduction, this book provides an action plan for any company or individual intent on becoming and staying an industry revolutionary. Hamel argues that the fundamental challenge companies face is reinventing themselves and their industries, not just in times of crisis — but continually.

Based on an extensive study of "gray-haired revolutionaries," including Charles Schwab, Cisco, Virgin, UPS, Semex, and GE Capital, Leading the Revolution shows how companies can continue to grow and thrive, even in ever-changing turbulent world markets.

Distinctive features and benefits to readers:

  • Explains the underlying principles of radical innovation
  • Explores where revolutionary new business concepts come from
  • Identifies the key design criteria for building companies that are activist-friendly and revolution-ready
  • Details the steps your company must take to make innovation an enduring capability
Packed with insight and practical advice, Leading the Revolution shows you how to get off the treadmill of incrementalism; save your company from becoming a "one-vision" wonder; harness the imagination and passion of every employee; and create vibrant internal markets for ideas, capital, and talent.

Leading the Revolution is not a book for cozy-corner office types. It is for everyone who has the guts to act on the knowledge that our heritage is no longer our destiny. This groundbreaking book from the premier business thinker of our time is a call to arms for the dreamers and doers who will lead us into the age of revolution.

Review:

Leading the Revolution will inspire innovativion at all levels and provide insight into opportunities for rewarding revolutionary thinking in new and bigger ways." Arthur M. Blank, President & CEO, The Home Depot, Inc.

Review:

"Gary Hamel captures the moment with a no-holds-barred assessment of the issues facing companies all around the world as they struggle to catch up with the new economy." Sir Richard Branson, Chairman, Virgin Group

Review:

"Revolutionaries in the new economy are those leaders and companies willing to change the strategies that once made them great. Gary Hamel's clear and powerful blueprint for radical innovation is eye-opening for any business." Michael Dell, Chairman and CEO, Dell

Review:

"Gary Hamel's new book is packed with savvy insights....It's wonderfully useful stuff — and you don't have to be a revolutionary to put it to work. So come down from the hills, retire your fatigues, and use this book as a guide...." William C. Taylor, Fast Company

Synopsis:

This edition lays out an innovative action plan for becoming an industry revolutionary. By drawing on the success of "grey haired revolutionaries" like Charles Schwab, Virgin and GE Capital, and profiling individuals, it explains how companies can continue to grow, innovate, and achieve success.

Gary Hamel, world-renowned business thinker and coauthor of Competing for the Future, the book that set the management agenda for the 1990s, now delivers an agenda for the twenty-first century with the national bestseller, Leading the Revolution. Fully revised with a new introduction, this book provides an action plan for any company or individual intent on becoming and staying an industry revolutionary. Hamel argues that to thrive in the age of revolution, companies must adopt a radical new innovation agenda. The fundamental challenge companies face is reinventing themselves and their industries not just in times of crisis—but continually. Beautifully illustrated with more than 100 full-color photos and drawings, Hamel's Leading the Revolution is an action plan (indeed, an incendiary device) for any company or individual intent on becoming and staying an industry revolutionary. Based on experiences of world-class companies, including Charles Schwab, Cisco, Virgin, and GE Capital, Leading the Revolution explains the underlying principles of radical innovation, explores where revolutionary new business concepts come from, and identifies the key design criteria for building companies that are activist friendly. It will show companies how to avoid becoming "one-vision wonders"; harness the imagination of every employee; develop new financial measures that focus on creating new wealth; and create vibrant internal markets for ideas, capital, and talent. Drawing on the examples of activists who profoundly changed their companies with their bare hearts, Hamel outlines the practical steps anyone can take to lead a successful revolution in their own firm.
