Book Description

Business competition will change radically in the next century. Short-sighted companies will go out of business. Survivors will successfully transition from the so-called Information Age of this century to the Intelligence Age of the 21st Century.

Ten years in the making, this book paints competition of the future based on in-depth research of worldwide business over the past 100 years. By analogy, it shows business competition in its 19th-Century childhood, 20th-Century adolescence, and 21st-Century adulthood. The book highlights new beginnings - the Intelligence Age, highly networked "MegaStrategic Business Entities," and the need for both a "Competitive Knowledge Base" and "Perpetual Strategy Process" to provide an early warning system for executives.

This is must-reading for business executives, managers and everyday consumers who want to plot a successful course for the future. It is also an invaluable reference tool for educators guiding the business leaders of tomorrow.
