Book Description

27 Nov 1998 Wiley Series in Practical Strategy
Competitor Intelligence Turning Analysis into Success David Hussey and Per Jenster The seminal work of Michael Porter in the 1980s provided a conceptual basis to competitor analysis which has stood the test of time. The emphasis of his work, and of many books by other authors which followed it, has been on the why and what of competitor analysis. David Hussey and Per Jenster′s book moves beyond this to the problems faced by organizations in applying the concepts at a practical level. It shows how real companies can use competitor intelligence and analysis in real situations. Three major strands are drawn out by this book, which shows how to: ∗ obtain competitor information in a legitimate way ∗ analyze information so that competitors can be better understood, and strategic options explored ∗ develop ways of achieving competitive advantage which may move the organization ahead of others in the industry This book provides a comprehensive guide for marketing and planning practitioners, managers and management consultants, to enable them to improve the competitor information and intelligence available to their organizations, and to use it to gain advantages over the competition. The book goes beyond the broad concepts, and gives practical advice on how to obtain and use the necessary information, offers various analytical techniques and approaches, and shows how to develop strategies for both attack and defence. It includes numerous cameo examples, a case history of how an organization undertook competitor analysis in an industry with little coherent published information, worked examples of many of the methods suggested, as well as a number of case studies of various industry situations. The text builds on a sound conceptual foundation, and draws heavily on the authors′ practical experience.

First Sentence
During a recent discussion with a group of managers from a large multinational company we were reminded of the old adage about the elephant and the six blind men attempting each to explain their perception of what they were encountering. Read the first page

Amazon.com: 3.0 out of 5 stars  1 review
3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but way over-priced. Buy a competing title instead. 1 Jan 2012
By Epictetus (Hong Kong) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is a thorough and well written book on the subject of competitive intelligence and, by virtue of that subject, strategic management. It is perhaps too wordy, but no more so than many business books. However, it is not worth the USD 70 price for the Kindle edition. This is dot-com era pricing gone mad. Some lower cost alternatives to this are:

Ohmae, K. _The Mind of the Strategist_.

Dranove & Marciano: _Kellogg on Strategy_.

Goold & Campbell. _Strategies and Styles_.
