About this book


 At the intersection of disruptive and accelerated change in the environment with globalization, business leaders around the world are trying to embrace change and incorporate innovative business models in the basics of their businesses. While innovation in their products and services remains a priority, it is the focus on rethinking how customer value is developed and delivered, and rethinking the profit formula and the financial model, and finally making corresponding changes to the core resources that are coming under increasing emphasis. This book presents new and innovative ideas and approaches that are increasingly becoming a key to business success in a rapidly changing world.

 "Pantaleo and Pal have assembled a coherent set of writings on how to map the journey from strategy intent to business outcome. The authors describe the people, process, and technology elements that have long confounded successful business change and provide practical advice on how to align all three elements to outperform your competitors. From Strategy to Execution is a valuable management handbook."

Jeanne W. Ross, MIT Center for Information Systems Research

In today' s reality of continuous improvement and ever increasing global competitive pressures, generating ideas for new product and service innovations alone is not sufficient to assure success. Transforming great ideas into commercial success requires continuous innovation across a wide spectrum of areas affecting business outcome including factors within and outside the control of the innovating enterprise. This book provides broad coverage of multiple strategic and operational considerations that will impact any organization's ability to translate their desire to innovate into sustainable success in a rapidly changing environment ... a must read for any senior executive operating in a competitive environment."
