This book is a meeting place of minds. It provides a unique opportunity to gain insights into tomorrow from today's most highly regarded business thinkers. Their cutting-edge thinking has helped to guide many thousands of corporation through the changing landscape of business. Now, in a series of original and inspiring contributions, they define the new paradigm that will revolutionize business and society in the 21st Century.Everywhere we look today, traditional boundaries between industries, disciplines and countries are rapidly blurring, and the old rules of management no longer make sense in a post-industrial world. Rethinking the Future looks at how organizations can be redesigned to survive and thrive in tomorrow's hyper-competitive global environment. How they can learn to adapt to change and dramatically improve their performance. And how they should be 'managed' if at all.These original essays provide a panoramic perspective that puts all the pieces together in a coherent and easily understandable context. In fact, it represents an entire bookshelf condensed between two covers - a business education for the 21st Century. This is essential reading for anyone concerned with business success beyond the next quarter."The distinguished contributors provide important conceptual components out of which the next business paradigm will be built. The pages teem with provocative, illuminating ideas, good questions, fresh insights, and alternative ways of thinking about the competitive/cooperative combat to come". -- From the Foreword by Alvin and Heidi TofflerThis book provides a unique opportunity to gain insights into tomorrow from today's most highly-regarded businessthinkers.
