This text offers a usable framework for modern strategic analysis. First presented to the Strategic Management Society at their Annual Conference in Phoenix, this methodology (the "value net" methodology) takes into account a firm's blurred and shifting boundaries. It aims to provide a tool for mapping and analyzing a competitive system and developing new creative competitive strategies.
From the Inside Flap
∗ What will be the new key success factors?
∗ What are the economic rules governing a networked economy?
∗ How can we define competitors and other competitive forces in industries with blurred boundaries?
As paradigms shift and industries reconfigure, these questions can no longer be adequately answered using traditional methods of analysis. As boundaries blur it is impossible to consider concepts of ′industries′ and ′enterprises′ in the traditional way. In this book, the author begins the search for the additional elements which will provide a better description of the complex phenomena underlying the new economic paradigm.

A new model to interpret dynamic sectors

If the first chapter is a helpful synopsis of the evolutions that most of the competitive systems have gone through, the rest of the book concentrates on the Value Net Model. This tool is clearly explained with many helpful examples that illustrate step by step the methodology that Parolini indicates as the way to analyze businesses from a new point of view: not strictly and statically bound to the single firm, but opened to the opportunities that the firm could play in the value creating system it competes or may compete. This book expresses an idea that I believe is an extremely interesting evolution of Porter's Value Chain Model and the concepts that Norman-Ramirez expressed in 1994 ("Designing Interactive Strategy: from the Value Chain to the Value Constellation"). I would suggest this book to anyone interested in strategy and consulting, since it may be helpful not only for those interested in the new economy, but also for those people seeking for a bright interpretation of more traditional businesses.
