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.
Written by two leaders of business strategy, this book provides a model for attaining industry leadership. It explains how to balance the demands of current businesses with the drive toward leadership in the markets of the future.
Hamel and Prahalad offer a masterful blueprint for what a company must be doing today if it is to occupy the competitive high ground of tomorrow. By showing that the key to future industry leadership is to develop an independent point of view about tomorrow's opportunities and build capabilities that exploit them, the authors reveal an entirely new definition of what it means to be strategic--and successful.
