Great book!
Makes you think, and makes you think right in my opinion.
This book is about the changing environment in which we all conduct our businesses, and how old business models are challenged
by the new infrastructure och information and data. Also introduces a new important role in business - the future strategist!
Interesting, thought-provoking and a good read at that! Would recommend it to anyone involved in any kind of strategic management or strategic thinking in any company interested in surviving the next decade.
