Dean Kamen the inventor of the Segway Human Transporter, shows how to turn an idea or invention into a product that solves a problem for a market. And Adrian Slywotzky, the perceptive and influential strategy consultant, shows how to find the elusive and ever-shifting profit zone. From management and marketing to finance, strategy, leadership, and innovation, "MBA in a Box covers all the bases and gets right to the heart of the ideas that make business tick.
