Business Strategy

2012, Shroff/O'Reilly, N, 1, Paperback, New, Gray

The future of work is already here.

Customers are adopting disruptive technologies faster than your company can adapt. When your customers are delighted, they can amplify your message in ways that were never before possible. But when your company’s performance runs short of what you’ve promised, customers can seize control of your brand message, spreading their disappointment and frustration faster than you can keep up.

To keep pace with today’s connected customers, your company must become a connected company. That means deeply engaging with workers, partners, and customers, changing how work is done, how you measure success, and how performance is rewarded. It requires a new way of thinking about your company: less like a machine to be controlled, and more like a complex, dynamic system that can learn and adapt over time.

Connected companies have the advantage, because they learn and move faster than their competitors. While others work in isolation, they link into rich networks of possibility and expand their influence.

Connected companies around the world are aggressively acquiring customers and disrupting the competition. In The Connected Company, we examine what they’re doing, how they’re doing it, and why it works. And we show you how your company can use the same principles to adapt—and thrive—in today’s ever-changing global marketplace.

The book is a brief reproduction of the experiences of the author when he was the member of the strategic core group of SAIL. As professor, the Author has covered details of Strategic MANAGEMENT in Mumbai University and also in Ranchi University.

The book covers almost all vital areas of strategic management starting from Definition of strategy, Mission, Objectives, Business Policy, Strategic Planning, Strategic Implementation, Strategic Profile of an Industry, Strategy and Structure, Grand Strategy, Generic Strategy, Value chain Analysis, Strategic Change, Strategic Evaluation, Strategy of Turnaround Management, Experience Curve, Mergers
and Acquisitions and Board of Directors.

In addition, the book provides a list of 16 cases which were either handled directly the author or analyzed by him. The need for this book was felt by the author while conducting classes in various B-Schools in Mumbai and elsewhere. For 90% of the students, they aim at lucidly building foundations in Strategic Management in very simple, brief and accurate perception of the subject which might have helped them in performing strategic functions after placement. The remaining 10% students who are interested in researching, analyzing and examining the niceties of the concept refer voluminous literature on the subject and
explore the various related aspects of strategic issues. But this 10% group also requires building basic foundations which this book provides.
