Out of the Box Strategies for Achieving Profits Today & Grow
Wydawnictwo: Harvard Business School Press
Now, leading business strategist John Hagel III has a refreshing message for managers burned by over-hyped technologies yet pressured to find innovative ways to deliver more value with fewer resources. Out of the Box tackles the most fundamental business issue facing managers today: how to continue to create value as competition intensifies. The book's practical advice will enable companies of all sizes to realize bottom-line savings quickly with modest investment, and create leveraged growth platforms for long-term competitiveness. For any manager who must envision and execute the next IT/business strategy, and the strategy after that, this book will prove to be a rich source of new ideas and a landmark in shaping their thinking.
A playbook for taking advantage of the next generation of information technology to pursue more nimble, flexible, and profitable competitive strategies such as outsourcing and offshoring. Timely: Offshoring and outsourcing are front page news. This book explains why companies must take advantage of these capabilities and provides a framework and technological insights for doing so. The Solution to the IT Black Hole: Offers a savvy alternative approach to so many companies' failed IT efforts that will deliver immediate tactical and cost-savings benefits while bolstering the firm's long-term competitiveness. Great Practical Complement to the Hagel/Seely Brown: while Your Next Business Strategy offers a "big picture" perspective on how offshoring and outsourcing will alter the future of companies and competition - this book can be used as a strategic and operational "playbook" that will guide executives in implementing these capabilities. New Material: Includes foreword by John Seely Brown
