As best summarized by the authors this book is about: "The goal of this book then can be simply stated: to help managers imagine the future and, having imagined it, create it. We want to help them get off the restructuring treadmill and get beyond the reengineering programs that simply rev up today's performance. We want to help them capture the riches that the future holds in store for those who get there first."This book truly and thoroughly re-defines what strategy is and how it can be levera [...]
It is an okey book to read but it is very focused on big enterprises and their activities which makes it lose a bit value from my point of view.I liked the ideas of the book and it has some good points. However, sometimes it felt like it took one chapter to explain something that could have been said more quickly. In a similar manner they use a lot of examples and I think repeat them at times in different chapters.All in all, it was an interesting read and they have really nice ideas. Even thoug [...]
One of the best business books I've ever read.
Not sure why this doesn't show? This book is: Competing for the Future - Gary Hamel and C.K Prahalad
This book was included in my book: The 100 Best Business Books of All Time. 100bestbiz
Totally worth it Totally worth reading it. As the authors themselves put it, it's a book about making a difference. With plenty of real life experiences, the authors lead us to learn to enlarge our vision and knowledge to see how we can better compete for the future. Highly recommended.
Good ideas, but a hard read. Worth the effort, but slow and kind of tangled.
This book is all about "core competence", a term coined by the authors (Gary Hamel and C.K. Prahalad) several years before and had become an industry buzz word. I liked the book as it tried to elevate strategy to a different status, a more positive one, in the eyes of companies.It was however surprising that nothing much has changed the shape and face of what strategy is in companies since the time this book was written. Strategy is still considered a burden in several organizations and consulti [...]
This is the best book on the big picture I've ever read (to date - Sept. 2007). The authors elaborate on REAL strategic thinking, not the 5-10 year junk that is SO prevalent in business and Christian literature (not that this is a Christian book by any means).Real strategy that needs a good 10 to 50 years to germinate. Strategy that goes after goals that there is, currently, NO way to achieve! Sweet. Imagine wanting to get real-time, full audio-video communication between any two people in the w [...]
The book is a good introduction to some important strategic concepts. Although it is no longer required reading at top consulting firms, it is still relevant and important. The book was very interesting. Hamel and Prahalad focused on the three most important areas that can determine a company's success: core competencies, resources and capabilities. I think it's an important book to read.
The core message is 'Worry about the future'.The book asks key questions to help leaders examine their organization: are we innovating enough? are we just following others? are we spending time on creating new products/markets? do we know what we're good at? do we understand our strategic direction and where it'll take us? etc etc
Businesses rarely spend enough time focused on the future; the Board and CEO should be creating markets for products that will be available a couple years out, and the strategy should be at least five years into the future.
Competing for the Future is a must read for every manager and entrepreneur who wants to change the world. The book does not provide ready-made recipe to catch up with the future, this book teaches you how to think about the future. I highly recommend it.
How to think like an entrepreneurial non-profit. I have not see any other book re non-profit management & leadership that is this helpful to explore how to expand your current "business" and to create new and additional programs/services.
Another great follow up by Gary Hamel! How to remain competitive and relevant as a leader in a new and innovative world.

Amazing amazing information on business strategy
I wish to have read it earlier. There are many books in this revolutionary one. It generates many ideas to build a meaningful business and helps to find purpose in our actions.
An interesting book about corporate vision and a framework by which to begin to evaluate it. An interesting book for those trying to navigate corporations and identify growth opportunities.
This book has a lot of great insights. It was written 17 years ago but it has many things that are still valid today. A must read for a manager.
A must-read book on competition for knowledge workers who want to be in executive role and entrepreneurs.
