Competing in the age of digital convergence by David B Yoffie( )

12 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 1,484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this important collection examine the consequences of digital convergence on the participating companies and industries, their internal capabilities, the products and services they produce, and the way they compete. In the process, the authors reveal that the key to success for companies in this new environment will not be to engineer big technological breakthroughs or to execute grand acquisitions. Instead, the winners will be those companies that develop

Strategy rules : five timeless lessons from Bill Gates, Andy Grove, and Steve jobs by David B Yoffie( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors of the bestselling Competing on Internet Time (a Business Week top 10 book) analyze the strategies, principles, and skills of three of the most successful and influential figures in business--Bill Gates, Andy Grove, and Steve Jobs--offering lessons for all managers and entrepreneurs on leadership, strategy and execution. In less than a decade, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Andy Grove founded three companies that would define the world of technology and transform our lives. At their peaks, Microsoft, Apple, and Intel were collectively worth some $1.5 trillion. Strategy Rules examines these three individuals collectively for the first time--their successes and failures, commonalities and differences--revealing the business strategies and practices they pioneered while building their firms. David B. Yoffie and Michael A. Cusumano have studied these three leaders and their companies for more than thirty years, while teaching business strategy, innovation and entrepreneurship at Harvard and MIT. In this enlightening guide, they show how Gates, Grove, and Jobs approached strategy and execution in remarkably similar ways--yet markedly differently from their erstwhile competitors--keeping their focus on five strategic rules. Strategy Rules brings together the best practices in strategic management and high-tech entrepreneurship from three path-breaking entrepreneurs who emerged as CEOs of huge global companies. Their approaches to formulating strategy and building organizations offer unique insights for start-up executives as well as the heads of modern multinationals"--
Judo strategy : turning your competitors' strength to your advantage by David B Yoffie( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why do some companies succeed in defeating stronger rivals, while others fail? This is a question that, sooner or later, all ambitious competitors must face. Whether you're a tiny start-up taking on industry giants or a giant moving into markets dominated by powerful incumbents, the basic problem remains the same: How do you compete with opponents who have size, strength, and history on their side? The answer lies in a simple but powerful lesson: rather than oppose strength to strength, successful challengers use their opponents' size and power to bring them down. This is the message at the heart of Judo Strategy." -book jacket

Some companies succeed in defeating stronger, more powerful rivals.

He also explains the countermovements that can be used by larger companies to crush an attack before it gains ground
Mastering strategy : the careers of superstar CEOs Bill Gates, Andy Grove, and Steve Jobs offer important lessons about how to become a better strategist by Martha E Mangelsdorf( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How can executives develop their skills as strategists? One good way is to learn from the masters. In a recent book, Strategy Rules: Five Timeless Lessons From Bill Gates, Andy Grove, and Steve Jobs (HarperCollins, 2015), David B. Yoffie and Michael A. Cusumano examine strategy lessons from the careers of the iconic CEOs of Microsoft Corporation, Intel Corporation, and Apple Incorporated MIT Sloan Management Review editorial director Martha E. Mangelsdorf interviewed Yoffie and Cusumano to discuss how Gates, Grove, and Jobs approached strategy. While Yoffie and Cusumano observed that each of the three executives began with their own skills and capabilities, they were all able to learn and grow. In the interview, Yoffie and Cusumano discussed the five important strategy lessons they drew from studying Gates, Grove, and Jobs. 1. Look forward, reason back. While it's natural for managers who are figuring out what to do to look backward and reason forward, this approach may be less effective than the reverse. Like chess players, Yoffie explained, strategists "need to think several steps ahead towards the end of the game and then reason back to what that means about what they need to do today." Gates, for example, realized that computers would become commodities and that value would reside in the software. 2. Make big bets, without betting the company. One of Microsoft's biggest bets, noted Cusumano, was its 1991 decision to break with IBM. It was "a huge gamble," he said, but by that time Microsoft had lots of other customers. 3. Build platforms and ecosystems, not just products. Cusumano observed that all three of the CEOs learned that platforms had more strategic power than products. "I can't think of any three CEOs who have clarified our thinking more on that enormously important strategic concept," Cusumano said. 4. Exploit leverage and power - play both judo and sumo. Yoffie pointed out that great strategists need to be both clever and tough. Clever means "trying to find ways to take advantage of your competitors' strengths and turn them to your advantage," he explained. But in addition, "you have to be tough enough to extract as much value as possible in your interactions with other businesses," without triggering antitrust problems. Shape the organization around your personal anchor. "You want to dive deep into the things you're really good at, but at the same time stay at a high level and always keep the big picture in mind," Yoffie said. "You have to k
The business of platforms : strategy in the age of digital competition, innovation, and power by Michael A Cusumano( Book )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Business of Platforms is an invaluable, in-depth look at platform strategy and digital innovation. Cusumano, Gawer, and Yoffie address how a small number of companies have come to exert extraordinary influence over every dimension of our personal, professional, and political lives. They explain how these new entities differ from the powerful corporations of the past. They also question whether there are limits to the market dominance and expansion of these digital juggernauts. Finally, they discuss the role governments should play in rethinking data privacy laws, antitrust, and other regulations that could reign in abuses from these powerful businesses
