Product description


This assembles an all-star gala: Handy, Covey, Porter, Prahalad, Hamel, Hammer, Senge ... An excellent introduction to these men’s work from their own lips. If you have ever wanted to look into a crystal ball and see the way of the future, this book is the one for you. It brings together the thoughts of some of the most well-known business gurus on the changes that organizations will have to adapt to in the future. The book contains some fascinating insights on rethinking markets, principles and competition. (Management Consultancy)

Managers will realise that this book is invaluable for the insights it offers in ‘scenario planning’ or ‘strategic thinking’ – that vital activity which organizations and their leaders must undertake if they wish to understand underlying market trends and be ‘top dog’ in the future through taking action now. Rethinking the Future tackles this world of increasing uncertainty head-on. (Management Skills and Development)

Rowan Gibson has demonstrated editorial skills of an exceptionally high quality. The overall balance is good and the various essays are, without exception, informative, challenging, thought provoking and well worthy of perusal. (Modern Management)

In today’s world, where management ‘how to’ books mushroom everywhere, Rethinking the Future is the best executive summary one could think of. (Cor Boonstra, President and Chairman of the Board, Philips)

A dazzling collection of leading business gurus summarizing their best thoughts. (Future Survey)

Book Description

This book 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 improve their performance; and how they should be "managed", if at all.
