Living on the Fault Line, Revised Edition: Managing for Shareholder Value in Any Economy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The fault line — that dangerous, unstable seam in the economy where powerful innovations and savage competition meet and create market-shattering tremors. Every company lives on it; no manager can control it.

In the original edition of Living on the Fault Line, Geoffrey Moore presented a compelling argument for using shareholder value (or share price) as the key driver in management decisions. Moore now revisits his argument in the post-Internet bubble world, proving that the methods he espouses are more germane than ever and showing companies how to use them to survive and thrive in today's demanding economy.

Extending the themes of Crossing the Chasm and Inside the Tornado, his first two books on the dynamics of the high-tech markets, Moore shows why sensitivity to stock price is the single most important lever for managing in the future, both as a leading indicator of shifts in competitive advantage and as an employee motivator for making necessary changes in organizations heretofore impervious to change.

This revised and updated edition includes:

  • A deeper emphasis on core versus context, which has emerged as the key distinction in allocating resources to improve shareholder value
  • A new Competitive Advantage Grid that will aid managers in achieving and sustaining competitive advantage, the most important component in managing for shareholder value
  • An expanded Value Discipline Model as it relates to the Competitive Advantage Grid
  • Analysis of the powerful new trend toward core/context analysis and outsourcing production duties
  • Updated models of organizational change for each stage of market development

As disruptive forces continue to buffet the marketplace and rattle the staid practices of the past, Moore offers a brilliant set of navigational tools to help meet today's most compelling management challenges.

Book News Annotation:

Business consultant Moore describes his approach to managing for maximized shareholder value. Central to his method is an understanding of the distinction between "core activity"—those practices which increase competitive advantage—and "context" (everything else). He argues that focusing on core rather than context improves a company's competitiveness in any sort of economy. The volume does not contain bibliographical references.

Synopsis:

Revised for a post dot-com world, Moore's classic revisits his compelling argument for using shareholder value (or share price) as the key driver in all management decisions, and, in light of the dot-com bust, proves that the methods are more germane than ever.

About the Author

Geoffrey Moore is a Managing Director with The Chasm Group, a consulting practice based in California that provides market development and business strategy services to many leading high-technology companies. He is also a Venture Partner with Mohr Davidow Ventures, a California-based venture capital firm specializing in specific technology markets, including e-commerce, internet, enterprise software, networking and semiconductors. As a Venture Partner at Mohr Davidow, he provides market strategy advice to their high-tech portfolio companies. Geoffrey is a frequent speaker and lecturer at industry conferences and his books are required reading at Stanford, Harvard, MIT and other leading business schools.

Geoffrey's current practice focuses on the concepts of his recent book Living on the Fault Line, targeted to CEO's and senior executives of Fortune 500 companies facing the impact of the Internet. Geoffrey's first book, Crossing the Chasm, initially published in 1991, adds compelling new extensions to the classical model of the Technology Adoption Life Cycle. He introduces his readers to a gap or "chasm" that innovative companies and their products must cross in order to reach the lucrative mainstream market. A revised edition was released in July 1999 to update industries and case-study companies.

The sequel, Inside the Tornado, published in 1995, provides readers with insight into how to capitalize on the potential for hypergrowth beyond the chasm. This second book sorts out how the market forces behind the Technology Adoption Life Cycle demand the need for radical shifts in market strategy.

The Gorilla Game, Geoffrey's third book, was originally released in March of 1998 with a revised version, including a new chapter on internet investing, released August of this year. This book was co-authored with Chasm Group managing partner and high-tech marketing strategist Tom Kippola, and stock investment guru and BancAmerica Robertson Stephens analyst Paul Johnson. The Gorilla Game combines the methodology Moore introduced in Crossing the Chasm and Inside the Tornado, with Johnson's stockmarket valuation models and Wall Street expertise, and Kippola's high-tech investment experience.

Geoffrey's most recent book, Living on the Fault Line, focuses on a single theme: How should the management of a public company that rose to prominence prior to the age of the Internet manage for shareholder value now that the Internet is upon us? Living on the Fault Line guides executives and managers who are coping with disruptive technology, destabilizing their core market positions, providing them with new models, metrics, and organizational practices to meet the challenges of the new economy.

Prior to founding The Chasm Group in 1992, Geoffrey was a principal and partner at Regis McKenna, Inc., a leading high-tech marketing strategy and marketing communications company. For the decade prior, he was a sales and marketing executive at three different software companies.

Geoffrey holds a bachelor's degree from Stanford University and a Ph.D. from the University of Washington, both in literature, and served as an English professor at Olivet College.
