Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Shows readers how to develop a Competitive Early Warning system (CEW), which combines strategic planning, competitive intelligence, and management action.

Book News Annotation:

The author presents his externally oriented business strategy in which managers analyze their industry environments using "competitive intelligence" to develop "early warnings" about emerging structures. The system is based on combining risk identification, risk monitoring, and management action. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Surprise is rarely a good thing in business. Unexpected developments range in their effects from inconvenient to disastrous. To avoid being blindsided, companies must develop a Competitive Early Warning system, or CEW, which combines strategic planning, competitive intelligence, and management action. Such systems let organizations manage risk more effectively and prevent ""industry dissonance"" — when market realities outpace corporate strategies. <i>Early Warning</i> reveals how to:

* Change strategy to meet new realities

* Learn from the mistakes of others via the book’s eye-opening stories

* Avoid common tactics like benchmarking and using consultants, which may do more harm than good

* Tell executives what they need to know — not what they want to hear

Each chapter ends with a Manager’s Checklist of key points, and the book includes numerous charts, tables, and tools. With strong opinions and wry humor, world-recognized expert Gilad reveals how to anticipate and react to early signs of trouble.
