Competing for the Future by Gary Hamel

New competitive realities have ruptured industry boundaries, overthrown much of standard management practice, and rendered conventional models of strategy and growth obsolete. In their stead have come the powerful ideas and methodologies of Gary Hamel and C.K. Prahalad, whose much-revered thinking has already engendered a new language of strategy. In this book, they develop a coherent model for how todays executives can identify and accomplish no less than heroic goals in tomorrows marketplace. Their masterful blueprint addresses how executives can ease the tension between competing today and clearing a path toward leadership in the future.

Competing for the Future

Will your company survive the changes that may strike your industry in the next five to ten years? The task requires enormous commitment and intellectual energy. Difficult questions about the future also challenge the belief that top managers possess a clear, compelling view of the opportunities and risks awaiting their company. The urgent drives out the truly important. Managers spend too much time catching up to competitors by cutting costs and improving quality and productivity. To stay ahead of industry change, managers must focus on creating a future in which their company will lead, not follow.

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.

It was written at a time when business process re-engineering and restructuring were the popular panaceas for business success but there was one fundamental problem…. Gary Hamel and CK Prahalad were intrigued by the question of why smaller rivals could beat much bigger, richer companies and why market power and market share advantages were not a strong enough defence. This focused the authors attention on the entire process of creating future competitive advantages. They noticed that some management teams had more foresight and competed to build future competencies rather than immediate market share. I love the power of these three questions asked early in Competing For The Future , to focus attention on how much time you really spend thinking about what may happen. Gary Hamel and CK Prahalad argue that strategy should be about competing for future opportunity share rather than market.
