Competing for the Futureby Gary Hamel
Synopses & Reviews
New competitive realities have ruptured industry boundaries, overthrown much of standard management practice, and rendered conventional models of strategy and growth obsolete. In their stead have come the powerful ideas and methodologies of Gary Hamel and C.K. Prahalad, whose much-revered thinking has already engendered a new language of strategy. In this book, they develop a coherent model for how today's executives can identify and accomplish no less than heroic goals in tomorrow's marketplace. Their masterful blueprint addresses how executives can ease the tension between competing today and clearing a path toward leadership in the future.
Challenging the belief that marketplace competitiveness is dependent on financial resources and old-world business practices, the coauthors of several Harvard Business Review articles provide an executive's model for today's goals. 50,000 first printing. Tour.
P bagsiden: With this book, managers have seen how they can reshape their industries — Gary Hamel and C.K. Prahalad offer a masterful blueprint for what your company must be doing today if it is to occupy the competitive high ground of tomorrow — By showing that the key to future industry leadershio is to develop an independent point of view about tomorrow's opportunities and build capabilities that exploit them, Hamel and Prahalad reveal an entirely new definition of what it means to be strategic - and succesful.
