Product description

Amazon Review

"Gene therapy, electronic commerce, intelligent sensors, digital imaging, micromachines, superconductivity and other emerging technologies have the potential to remake entire industries and obsolete established strategies," write George S Day and Paul JH Schoemaker in the opening to Wharton on Managing Emerging Technologies. Their book is a comprehensive look at the high-tech future facing existing firms and the ways they must weigh and accommodate its impacts in order to compete in the future. Based on six years of research with Charles Schwab, and other techno pioneers, Day and Schoemaker present "insights, tools and frameworks" developed by Wharton's Emerging Technologies Management Research Programme for managers who want guidance in this fluid, new arena. For example, in demonstrating how the upstart PalmPilot solidly captured its market despite established competition, they identify the traps that stymied rival products from Apple, IBM, Sony and Microsoft as "delayed participation, sticking with the familiar, reluctance to fully commit, and lack of persistence". They then detail solutions that, in this case, are characterised as "widening peripheral vision, creating a learning culture, staying flexible in strategic ways, and providing organisation autonomy". Other similarly specific yet universal sections address public policy, financing and alliances. --Howard Rothman,


"New technologies are transforming markets, businesses, and society at an ever-increasing rate. We have a critical need for better road maps for managing our way through this new terrain. This book offers critical insights and useful new models for thinking through these challenges." -Professor Thomas Gerrity, Director of the Wharton e-Commerce Forum "Wharton on Managing Emerging Technologies covers the emerging technology landscape-from strategy to finance to human resources-in a way that only a group of top scholars from many disciplines could do. Insightful, accessible, and smart ideas that make for 'must reading' for thoughtful executives in today's turbulent economy. The authors prove, once again, the power of research to yield deep insight into tough business problems." -Kathleen M. Eisenhardt, Professor of Strategy and Organization, Stanford University and coauthor, Competing on the Edge: Strategy As Structured Chaos "Wharton on Managing Emerging Technologies offers valuable insight for large established companies seeking growth in a dynamic market of rapid technological advancement. The entertaining cases and thoughtful analyses help managers create strategies, select options, and organize to successfully manage the interface between imagination and knowledge." -Jerry Karabelas, PhD, CEO, Novartis Pharma AG --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
