What really fuels long-term business success?

Not operational excellence or new business models, but management innovation: new ways of mobilizing talent, allocating resources, and building strategies. Over the past century, breakthroughs in the 'technology of management' have enabled a few companies, including General Electric, Procter & Gamble, Toyota, and Visa, to cross new performance thresholds and build long-term advantages. Yet most companies lack a disciplined process for radical management innovation.

World renowned business sage Gary Hamel argues that organizations need bold management innovation now more than ever. The current management model, centered on control and efficiency, no longer suffices in a world where adaptability and creativity drive business success. In his most provocative book to date, Hamel takes aim at the legacy beliefs preventing 21st-century companies from surmounting new challenges. With incisive analysis and vivid illustrations, he explains how to turn your company into a serial management innovator, and reveals:

The make-or-break challenges that will determine competitive success in an age of head-snapping change

The toxic effects of our legacy-management beliefs

The unconventional management practices generating breakthrough results in a handful of pioneering organizations

The new principles every company must weave into its management DNA

The Web's potential to obliterate smokestack management practices

The actions your company can take now to build its own management advantage

Get ready to throw off the shackles of yesterday's management dogma. Tomorrow's winners will be those companies that start inventing the future of management today.

    A great management book. I've seen power sharing and democracy described in many business books. This book brings this concept to life with innovative case studies and research. Must read for managers and consultants.
