Hearing the voice of the market : competitive advantage through creative use of market information by Vincent P Barabba( Book )

15 editions published between 1990 and 1998 in English and held by 875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hearing the Voice of the Market provides a detailed plan that enables managers throughout the organization to make more frequent & better use of market information. The book shows managers how to develop the two capabilities that distinguish the successful, market-oriented firm--competent curiosity, & competent knowledge use. The two are closely linked: inadequate information cannot be used well, & sound information is wasted if it is utilized poorly. Includes experiences & insights of the many managers & researchers cited in the text. Readers will learn how to create an environment in which managers are inquisitive about their markets, are able to satisfy their curiosity with real market information, & can make knowledge-based decisions that lead to success. This book provides guidance on how managers may make better use of market information. It argues that market research on its own is not enough, and that an intelligent system of interpreting and using market research information is required
Meeting of the minds : creating the market-based enterprise by Vincent P Barabba( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Dutch and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on his thirty years of executive experience at Eastman Kodak, Xerox, General Motors, and in government, Barabba demonstrates that when companies use systems thinking to view customers and the market as an extension of the organization, they achieve a meeting of the minds - creating value for customer, community and enterprise. Barabba rejects the path of organizational restructuring and instead presents a framework for creating unity of knowledge and purpose across functions and for linking them with the markets they serve. He offers an array of tools and concepts - like the dialogue decision process and the knowledge-use network - designed to promote systemic knowledge gathering and decision making without dissipating functional competencies

Surviving transformation : lessons from GM's surprising turnaround by Vincent P Barabba( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How did a major corporation manage to turn itself around while Wall Street and others continued to predict its slow death? The answer may surprise you, and it provides a model for corporate transformation for any company or government agency operating in a world of accelerating change. The company is General Motors, and this book tells how it was able to change the way important decisions were made, leading to resurgence in business across its many product lines. At the beginning of the 1990s, GM was perceived by nearly everyone as falling behind its competitors at an alarming rate. By the beginning of the twenty-first century, though, the company had come storming back with successful new automobiles and new business concepts that captured new markets, while simultaneously holding on to many of its existing customers. What GM did is not just the story of a single automaker, but rather a compelling insight into an approach for any business organization that is faced with the need for a true transformation. As many companies have discovered, efforts at transformation too often fail. GM's successful transformation illustrates the importance of management's ability to change its mindset and make the tough decisions that revitalize business with bold new products and business concepts. At the heart of successful transformation is the imagination, courage and leadership required to visualize the kind of company an organization wants to become and then work toward that goal. With the destination set and understood by those who will need to implement the changes, decision-makers find it less difficult to overcome impediments to achieving their goal while finding creative ways of doing what may seem impossible. The lessons from GMs turnaround can help any business organization change and keep pace with today's turbulent marketplace."--Publisher's description

Business strategies for a messy world : tools for systemic problem-solving by Vincent P Barabba( Book )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The need to examine and challenge a host of critical, taken-for-granted assumptions is one of the most important tasks facing managers and leaders daily. Beyond recognizing the need to examine and challenge key assumptions, managers and leaders must develop a systematic way of surfacing and critiquing important assumptions, let alone keeping track of them over time so that key business strategies can change as important underlying assumptions change. Using current business examples and academic research, Tools for Systematic Problem-Solving educates managers and executives on how to systematically examine key assumptions to ensure survival and success for their organizations"
