6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Capital Rising is a must-read for anyone wanting to understand how the globalization of venture capital and private equity investment is dramatically impacting the rise and fall of industries."--Patrick J. Mcgovern, Founder & Chairman, International Data Group (IDG)" ""Original and thought provoking, Cohan and Rangan make us recognize both the importance of global capital flows and their impact on the competitiveness of countries and firms. Lying at the intersection of finance, international business, entrepreneurship, and public policy, this fresh perspective offers an insightful approach to uncover new opportunities and shed light on hidden risks."--Mark Nunnelly, Managing Director, Bain Capital" ""Capital Rising is a very good read and sets forth an intelligent and cohesive approach for thinking critically about making cross-border business decisions. I would urge investors and executives grappling with such decisions to read this book and apply its lessons."---Thomas Flexner, Global Head of Real Estate, Citigroup" ""Cohan and Rangan bring our understanding of the globalization of trade, capital flows, and entrepreneurship to a new level. Whether for policymakers, capital providers, entrepreneurs, or managers operating in a global company, Capital Rising provides tangible insight into what separates successful entrepreneurs and business start-ups from those that don't make it in the increasingly global world that we live in today."---Gregory J. Fleming, President, Morgan Stanley Investment Management and Global Research" ""Much has been written about the globalization of enterprise. For the first time, Cohan and Rangan have comprehensively documented the implications of globalization for the diffusion of entrepreneurial activities. Their insights into the context that drives the flow of funds around the world will serve as a useful guide!"---Leonard A. Schlesinger, President, Babson College" ""This book combines a broad conceptual framework for entrepreneurism. Since these cases include failures as well as successes, the authors are able to generate specific and useful recommendations for policymakers, capital providers and business managers."---Robert Pozen, Chairman of MFS Investment Management and Senior Lecturer at Harvard Business School" "Globalization has changed the nature of entrepreneurship today, and with it, the face of economic growth. Today, policymakers, capital providers, and business managers are increasingly interested in maximizing their use of capital to spur economic development and job creation. Capital Rising delivers a new way for them to think about growth." "The authors have a created a new and sophisticated framework for understanding international capital flows, the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem. This model consists of four key factors: financial markets, corporate governance, human capital, and intellectual property regime. Using dozens of case studies developed through interviews with organizations and drawing on the latest academic research, they look at how the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem interacts with today's global economy, including growing, maturing, and rejuvenating industries, and various countries worldwide. They also look in-depth at the implications for policymakers, capital providers, and managers in both start-ups and established organizations, providing them with both best practices and essential analytic tools that will help them to profit from the opportunities while avoiding risks in the global economy" "This groundbreaking approach will fundamentally change the way capital providers and managers invest and make strategic decisions in today's increasingly global economy by highlighting previously unappreciated risks and opportunities"--Jacket

Disciplined growth strategies : insights from the growth trajectories of successful and unsuccessful companies by Peter S Cohan( )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accelerate your company's growth in a disciplined fashion. This book provides leaders of large and small companies a proven comprehensive framework to think systematically about growth options and to yield practical strategies that produce faster growth. Drawing insights from case studies of successful and unsuccessful companies, strategy teacher and venture capitalist Peter Cohan models his systematic approach to brainstorming, evaluating, and implementing growth strategies across five dimensions: Customers, Geography, Products, Capabilities, Culture. He examines each of these five growth dimensions in turn, selecting and organizing his cases to compare the growth strategies deployed successfully and unsuccessfully by large and small companies along the given dimension. In each of his five dimensional chapters, the author derives from his case analyses the key principles and processes for creating and achieving faster growth. Professor Cohan draws on a network of hundreds of founders, CEOs, and investors developed through his decades of consulting, authorship of 11 books, and over five years as a Forbes columnist. He shows through many compelling stories how leaders craft effective growth strategies. Business leaders will learn the following lessons from this book: Achieving rapid but sustainable growth is a business leader’s most important responsibility – and leaders must approach this challenge with a mixture of vision, intellectual humility, and a willingness to experiment and learn from failure. The growth challenges facing companies that are currently growing quickly differ from the ones that stagnating or shrinking companies must overcome. Companies can achieve growth along one or more of the dimensions simultaneously – and they often expand geographically to customers in the same segments. Useful insights can emerge from comparing case studies of successful and unsuccessful companies pursuing similar growth strategies. Companies should select a growth strategy based on three factors: the attractiveness of the growth opportunity, the company’s capabilities to provide superior value to customers in the selected market, and the expected return on investment in the growth vector. Companies should select a growth strategy that best fits their capabilities and culture and they must enhance both to adapt to new growth opportunities
Startup cities : why only a few cities dominate the global startup scene and what the rest should do about it by Peter S Cohan( )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a comprehensive model for explaining the success and failure of cities in nurturing startups, presents detailed case studies of how participants in that model help or hinder startup activity, and shows how to apply these lessons to boost local startup activity. Startup Cities explains the factors that determine local startup success based on a detailed comparison of regional startup cities—pairing the most successful and less successful cities within regions along with insights and implications from case studies of each of the model’s elements. The book compares local city pairs, highlighting factors that distinguish successful from less successful cities and presents implications for stakeholders that arise from these principles. Peter Cohan is a lecturer of Strategy at Babson College and one of the world’s leading authorities on regional startup ecosystems. Starting in 2012, he created and led Startup Strategy courses that explore four regional startup ecosystems—Hong Kong/Singapore, Israel, Paris, and Spain/Portugal. These courses are based on an original framework for evaluating why a few cities host most startup creation and the rest fail to do so. In running these courses, Peter has built a network of local policymakers, investors, entrepreneurs, and professors from which he draws practical insights for what distinguishes successful Startup Commons from their peers. The book provides vital benefits to these stakeholders. What You’ll Learn: Local policymakers will know how to build a local team to set objectives for their local Startup Commons and develop a comprehensive strategy to realize those goals Entrepreneurs will know how to choose where to locate their startups based on factors such as the supply and quality of talent—from chief marketing and technology officers to coders and sales people; quality of life, access to capital, customers, and mentors; and costs such as salary and real estate expense University administrators and faculty will know how to take research out of their labs and house it in companies that can commercialize that research, create academic programs that will encourage more entrepreneurship among their students, and connect with local policymakers and capital providers to spur local startup activity Capital providers will know how to scout out emerging startup cities where they can get access to the best investment opportunities at more favorable valuations and have greater influence on how the local startup scene evolves

You can't order change : lessons from Jim McNerney's turnaround at Boeing by Peter S Cohan( Recording )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first audiobook to explore the unique leadership style of Boeing's acclaimed CEO Jim McNerney was one of Jack Welch's top proteges at General Electric and a finalist to replace the retiring Welch as CEO. McNerney lost that competition in 2001, but since then he has emerged as one of the most effective leaders of his generation. You Can't Order Change tells the amazing story of McNerney's turnaround at the world's leading aircraft manufacturer, which had faced a series of tough problems. Boeing is extremely hard to run, with more than $66 billion in annual revenue and 161,000 employees. A new product like the 787 Dreamliner costs billions to develop over many years, with global production hurdles and little margin for error. Peter Cohan interviewed people who worked with McNerney throughout his career to explain why his consensus-driven style sets him apart. The title comes from a McNerney quote about the importance of winning hearts and minds with a clear vision of future success. McNerney combines Midwestern integrity and humility with the brilliance and drive of a Harvard Business School and McKinsey alum. This audiobook reveals his approach to accountability, growth, cost cutting, leadership development, customer focus, and other universal challenges."
