Product description


George Fisher Retired Chairman & CEO, Eastman Kodak Company The authors bring together an impressive wealth of corporate market histories to present a valuable framework for thinking through corporate strategy. Identifying where a company is in this framework and laying one's strategies against the suggested rules for that position provides an extremely valuable, thought-provoking, and prescriptive tool for strategy development. If you can't clearly say that you are headed to be one of the three dominant generalist survivors in a market, or a strong product or market niche player, you will probably be in harm's way. Wherever you are, "The Rule of Three" will help you walk through the minefields and around the ditch. Stan Davis author of "Blur" and "Lessons from the Future" These two know what they're talking about. This is not about a business fad. With a deceptively simple principle, "The Rule of Three" richly explains the evolution of industry structures and the appropriate strategic responses. It's built on solid research and powerful insight. I found myself underlining gems on every other page. Whether your company is a full-line generalist or a niche specialist, and especially if it is in the endangered middle, this book is a thoughtful and solid guide for everyone who intends to stay in business for a long time. Professor Jeffrey Sonnenfeld author of "The Hero's Farewell, " Associate Dean, Yale School of Management Sheth and Sisodia present original research and analysis that reveal a Nobel-prize-quality realization of how mature markets work. No corporate leaders can wisely guide their enterprises through the turbulence of contemporary competitive markets without this book as their navigational map. Philip Kotler Northwestern University, Kellogg School of Management Sheth and Sisodia have written one of the most provocative and original business books to come out in years. Whether your company functions in your industry as a generalist, a specialist, or is stuck in a ditch, you will find a catalog of strategies for surviving, reviving, or prospering. Dr. William Davidson CEO, MESA Research Every decade or two, a breakthrough book appears to shed light on business dynamics and show leaders a superior way to create value. This is that book. Read it sooner, rather than later.
