Under Andy Grove's leadership, Intel has become the world's largest chip maker and one of the most admired companies in the world. In Only the Paranoid Survive, Grove reveals his strategy of focusing on a new way of measuring the nightmare moment every leader dreads--when massive change occurs and a company must, virtually overnight, adapt or fall by the wayside. Grove calls such a moment a Strategic Inflection Point, which can be set off by almost anything: mega-competition, a change in regulations, or a seemingly modest change in technology. When a Strategic Inflection Point hits, the ordinary rules of business go out the window. Yet, managed right, a Strategic Inflection Point can be an opportunity to win in the marketplace and emerge stronger than ever. Grove underscores his message by examining his own record of success and failure, including how he navigated the events of the Pentium flaw, which threatened Intel's reputation in 1994, and how he has dealt with the explosions in growth of the Internet. The work of a lifetime, Only the Paranoid Survive is a classic of managerial and leadership skills. The Currency Paperback edition of Only the Paranoid Survive includes a new chapter about the impact of strategic inflection points on individual careers--how to predict them and how to benefit from them. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Im neuen Buch von Gunter Dueck, "Schwarmdumm. So blöd sind wir nur gemeinsam", geht es der Schwarmintelligenz an den Kragen. Die "Schwarmintelligenz" treibt uns geradewegs ins Verderben. Denn statt einer Konzentration an Intelligenz regiert im Schwarm oft das Prinzip: Viele Köche verderben den Brei. Sinnlose Meetings, schmerzhafte Kompromisse, unausgereifte Ergebnisse trotz Teamarbeit sind in Unternehmen und Institutionen keine Ausnahme, sondern die Regel. Gunter Dueck gibt dem Phänomen in seinem Buch einen Namen. "Schwarmdummheit" nennt es Gunter Dueck, Querdenker und Arbeitsweltexperte. Mit seinem Buch macht er uns klar, warum jeder Einzelne im Team oft besser entscheidet als das Team selbst. "Wild Duck" seziert die Brutstätten der Schwarmdummheit und zeigt uns gleichzeitig, wie das genial Einfache in der Masse entstehen kann. Dafür gibt es eine Voraussetzung: Vor dem Ausschwärmen Dueck lesen! Dieses Buch von Gunter Dueck ... ... enttarnt das Wesen der Schwarmdummheit. ... zeigt, wie Dummheit in Schwärmen entsteht. ... erklärt, warum der große Schwarm sich selbst genügt - und deshalb zu oft den Blick über den Tellerrand vermeidet. ... weist den Weg, wie alle zu Freunden eines gemeinsamen und tatsächlich erstrebenswerten Ganzen werden.

Unternehmensgründungen sind "in". Mit dem erfolgreichen Aufbau eines Unternehmens sind aber neben vielen Erfolgserlebnissen auch große Anstrengungen und Probleme verbunden. Die hohen Anforderungen an physische und psychische Stabilität der Unternehmensgründer in der New Economy werden erst in den kritischen Wachstumsphasen der Unternehmen deutlich. Der Autor, erfolgreicher Wissenschaftler, Unternehmensgründer und politischer Berater, fasst seine Erfahrungen zu spannenden Erzählungen und "Lebensregeln" zusammen. Die erfolgreiche Gründung der IDS Scheer AG, sowie die Entwicklung über 20 weiterer Spin-off-Unternehmen seines Instituts für Wirtschaftsinformatik an der Universität Saarbrücken bilden den Hintergrund seiner Ausführungen. Das Buch wendet sich an Unternehmensgründer, Studenten, Wissenschaftler und Politiker. Die offene Schilderung der Gründungs- und Wachstumsphasen seiner Unternehmen lassen den Leser an dem Abenteuer des "Unternehmertums" teilhaben. Unternehmertum fordert er auch von den Professoren in der universitären Forschung und Lehre. Zur Verbesserung der Rahmenbedingungen für Unternehmensgründungen macht er kritische Anmerkungen und konstruktive Vorschläge zur deutschen Innovationspolitik. Er gibt Einblicke in das Lebensgefühl der Menschen in der New Economy, in der PC nicht nur für "Personal Computer", sondern auch für das Kultessen Pizza und Cola während der Nachtarbeit am Computer steht. Interessenten der High-Tech Welt lernen Interna kennen, die hinter den glitzernden Fassaden üblicherweise verborgen bleiben.

It doesn’t take days or weeks or months to read a book. It takes hours. READ MORE explains how. Most people readily admit that reading books is beneficial, and wish they could read a bit more, and in some cases, a lot more. But most people also have what seem like perfectly valid excuses for not reading, chief among which are lack of time, work-load and responsibility. Yes, they all seem perfectly understandable excuses until you read this book, and discover accounts of people going out of their way to indulge in the habit, from Rudi Giuliani, who, as New York Mayor during 9-11, finally arrived home at past 2 A.M. on the night of that fateful day, and still picked up a book to read; to Barack Obama who went on a one-week vacation in 2010, with over 2,300 pages of reading; to George W. Bush whose formula for reading was to enter into a reading contest with his top presidential aide, Karl Rove. Then there is the challenge of the 99% majority, for whom affordability might also be a ready excuse. Yet, Dr. Ben Carson, today a world-famous neurosurgeon and bestselling author, traces his turnaround to the reading habit instilled in him in fifth grade by his single mother who wasn’t even literate at the time. And there are several other examples. But what of the other 1%, the rich and famous, for whom, time is priceless? Bill Gates as CEO of Microsoft had a Think Week, dedicated to reading. And as Singapore Prime Minister, Lee Kuan Yew took out time to “recharge his batteries” at Harvard. A commitment to a regime of habitual reading takes more than mental conviction. It takes doing. And unlike what most people have come to believe, reading a book doesn’t take days or weeks. It takes hours. This book demonstrates how, and reveals other simple steps that anyone can follow, to develop a life-time habit of enjoyable reading, and reap its rewards.

David Hurst has a unique knowledge of organizations—their function and their failure—both in theory and in practice. He has spent twenty-five years as an operating manager, often in crises and turnaround conditions, and is also a widely experienced consultant, teacher, and writer on business. This book is his innovative integration of management practice and theory, using a systems perspective and analogies drawn from nature to illustrate groundbreaking ideas and their practical application. It is designed for readers unfamiliar with sophisticated management concepts and for active practitioners seeking to advance their management and leadership skills. Hurst’s objective is to help readers make meaning from their own management experience and education, and to encourage improvement in their practical judgment and wisdom. His approach takes an expansive view of organizations, connecting their development to humankind’s evolutionary heritage and cultural history. It locates the origins of organizations in communities of trust and follows their development and maturation. He also crucially tracks the decline of organizations as they age and shows how their strengths become weaknesses in changing circumstances. Hurst’s core argument is that the human mind is rational in an ecological, rather than a logical, sense. In other words, it has evolved to extract cues to action from the specific situations in which it finds itself. Therefore contexts matter, and Hurst shows how passion, reason, and power can be used to change and sustain organizations for good and ill. The result is an inspirational synthesis of management theory and practice that will resonate with every reader’s experience.

Low cost competitors, who offer “good enough” products and services at very attractive prices, are currently significantly impacting the businesses of many leading companies, and some are starting to “move up” to challenge the traditional companies in their core markets. It’s only a matter of time before most companies will feel the pressure from these aggressive, cut-price competitors. Beating Low Cost Competition offers a step–by–step structured approach to help executives in traditional companies with premium brands think through the options for responding to their low cost rivals and select the most appropriate strategy to win in their chosen markets.

Ultimately, the insights gained from this book will lead to better and more profitable business decisions. Adrian Ryans is Professor of Marketing and Strategy at IMD, Lausanne, Switzerland.
