Overview
This new release explores why many of the world's most iconic businesses and brands have become obsolete in recent years and offers tips for avoiding the same fate. In an unprecedented era of upheaval, this timely book offers practical and proven strategies for staying ahead of the curve and the competition as times change.
Description
We are living in a time of upheaval. Once-lucrative revenue models are under siege. Market structures and distribution channels that have been stable for decades are crumbling before our eyes. The demise of brands such as Kodak, Borders and HMV Music leaves us with little doubt – shift is happening and no organization or brand is immune to extinction. In this landmark new release, three-time bestselling author Michael McQueen explores the five reasons why even the greatest become obsolete. More importantly, Michael looks at what separates the enduring from the endangered. Highlighting principles and lessons from businesses such as Lego, IKEA and Volvo, he identifies six keys to successfully navigating the headwinds of change.
