Description and Reviews
From The Publisher: 
With their breakthrough strategy for seizing industry leadership and dominating the markets of tomorrow, Hamel and Prahalad challenge executives the world over to stop the unrewarding and ultimately dead-end process of downsizing and enter the dynamic realm of industry transformation.

From Booknews  
Admonishes those promoting restructuring and downsizing as a serious strategic solution to the complexities of the global business community while suggesting sound, imaginative approaches that address the real dynamics. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From Library Journal  
Hamel and Prahalad, both academicians and active consultants of strategic management with an international focus, give us a provocative, future-oriented book that shows how an organization can seize control of its industry and create future markets. Unlike the recent books promoting downsizing, restructuring, and/or reengineering, this timely volume advances an aggressive framework of "industry transformation" as the way to be strategic. The dozen chapters present practical advice about how to dominate emerging opportunities while staking out new competitive space within the industry. The authors challenge business leaders to change the status quo. The audience for this well-written work's is today's business executives; academicians and advanced students should also find it worthwhile.-Joseph W. Leonard, Miami Univ., Oxford, Ohio
From Publisher's Weekly - Publishers Weekly 
Hamel and Prahalad (coauthors of Harvard Business Review) develop judicious, provocative managerial theses in this sophisticated work. Rejecting recent downsizing and reengineering trends, they present their blueprint for transforming an industry's structure, which, they stress, is the primary challenge facing today's managers. The authors focus on tomorrow's competition and opportunities, vitalizing the company for the future and outrunning competitors to "get to the future first.'' Pioneering ideas on strategy, leadership competencies and market forces abound in this study. Concepts are presented with numerous visual aids.
