The 86 percent solution : how to succeed in the biggest market opportunity of the next 50 years by Vijay Mahajan( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most global businesses focus on selling to the wealthiest fourteen percent of the world's population: the developed world. But these markets are oversaturated, overcompetitive, and aging. The 86 Percent Solution shows how to unleash new growth and profitability by serving everyone else." "Drawing on dozens of examples from emerging markets worldwide, the authors offer actionable strategies and tactics for product design, pricing, packaging, distribution, advertising, and much more. You'll discover the radically different "rules of engagement" that make emerging markets tick, and how some companies are already driving billions of dollars in sales there." "Along the way, you'll learn how to handle lack of infrastructure and media, low literacy levels, and "unconventional" consumer behavior. With the right solutions, these challenges present opportunities."--Jacket

Strategic supremacy : how industry leaders create growth, wealth, and power through spheres of influence by Richard A D'Aveni( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Are upstart competitors taking deadly aim at your company's products and markets' Richard A. D'Aveni, author of the famous attacker's handbook Hypercompetition, presents coun-terrevolutionary strategies and tactics that any industry leader or established company can use to defend itself against revolutionaries, disrupters, or hypercompetitors. The secret lies in making the rules, not breaking them, D'Aveni says, because rule makers still rule. Arguing that "profits and prosperity come not from revolution but stability and orderly change," D'Aveni presents a commanding framework that will enable any resource-rich or clever defender to gain Strategic Supremacy by being first to define the playing field. D'Aveni demonstrates how global powerhouses such as Disney, Microsoft, and Procter & Gamble have achieved preeminence by reconceptualizing their product portfolios as powerful competitive arsenals he calls "spheres of influence." Essentially a new way to compete by restructuring portfolios around a core geographic/product market, spheres enable any company to influence the behavior and positioning of rivals. In immensely readable prose, D'Aveni describes how prevailing spheres of influence can be used to create legal business equivalents to a "concert of powers" and other industry structures that mix cooperation with competition. Just one of the potent functions of a corporate sphere, D'Aveni shows, is to contain competitors of equal size (as NBC contained ABC). Spheres can also be used to stabilize an entire industry's global power system. A glance at the detailed table of contents will provide a sense of the wealth of new information contained in this essential handbook of global warfare, including "how-to" tools the reader will need to measure and map the pattern of competitive pressure in any industry and to interpret the meaning and strategic implications of these pressure patterns for his or her position within the industry's power hierarchy
Profiting from uncertainty : strategies for succeeding no matter what the future brings by Paul J. H Schoemaker( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What manager is not anxious about the future' We live in a white-knuckled age of rapid technological change and global instability. But uncertainty is not the enemy, says management expert Paul J.H. Schoemaker. It is where the greatest opportunities are. To unlock these opportunities, however, requires a very different approach to strategy and implementation. In this pioneering book, Dr. Schoemaker presents a systematic approach that combines concepts such as scenario planning, options thinking, and dynamic monitoring to create novel strategies for profiting from ambiguity. Building on his experience with more than one hundred consulting projects in fields ranging from health care to manufacturing, from utilities to financial services, Schoemaker shows how major corporations throughout the world have used his pathbreaking methodology to prepare for an uncertain future and profit from it. In this first comprehensive approach to the subject, Schoemaker shows the reader (1) how to develop and analyze multiple industry scenarios, (2) craft nimble strategies with just the right amount of flexibility, (3) implement them using an options approach, and (4) make real-time adjustments through dynamic monitoring. As a leading academic thinker and practitioner, the author draws on the frontiers of decision science, organization theory, strategy, and cognitive psychology to integrate the most practical contributions these various fields have made to navigating uncertainty. More than any other capability, skill in seizing initiatives in shifting, unpredictable circumstances is the key to success. Profiting from Uncertainty provides a road map to do just that. This book was first published in 2002, well ahead of the mega turmoil that befell the world in 2008 and beyond. The methods and tools described here have been used by many companies and are even more relevant today than when originally published. You can't do without them

The wealthy 100 : from Benjamin Franklin to Bill Gates-- a ranking of the richest Americans, past and present by Michael M Klepper( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In America, while all men and women may be created equal, they do not all end up that way. This book ranks an elite group: the richest Americans in American history. The Wealthy 100 offers intimate, often surprising portraits of these individuals and how they amassed their fortunes. The rankings are based on estimated total wealth at the time of death - or a given year for current living Americans - as a percentage of the Gross National Product (GNP) in current dollars for that year. This allows the authors to compare the fortunes of people from different centuries

Convergence marketing : strategies for reaching the new hybrid consumer by Yoram Wind( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today's consumer is a centaur: a new hybrid who's mastering the latest technologies, but is still driven by age-old human desires and motivations. "Cyberconsumer" business models ignored human reality: that's why they failed. But "back-to-basics" ignores the deep changes the Internet has wrought. The genie's out of the bottle: your customers have profoundly new expectations -- and you have powerful new tools for delivering on them. Convergence Marketing Strategy illuminates the "centaur," showing what today's customers can do, what they're choosing to do, how they're evolving, and where they're headed. Jerry Wind and Vijay Mahajan identify "5Cs" at the heart of the new consumer relationship: customerization, community, channels, competitive value propositions, and choice tools. You'll discover strategies and tactics for responding right now -- and a complete framework for refocusing processes, structure, people, incentives, and technology to serve the centaur tomorrow
