More Extreme Competition: Business Drivers, Realities and Strategies

Another a follow-up to my previous blog-entry about Peter Fingar's book Extreme Competition ...

In the book, Fingar talks about 5 "unstoppable" drivers/transformers, 16 "new realities of business", and 13 "strategy patterns" to consider. Rajesh Jain, who wrote the foreward to the book, has a very well-written series of blog-entries collected together in Tech Talk: Extreme Competition.

I've already blogged quite a bit about this book, so I wont go into detail about each of the items listed below other than to simply list them. For more details, I recommend looking at Rajesh Jain's Tech Talk: Extreme Competition and also the numerous materials available from the homepage for the book Extreme Competition
