Abstract:

"In The Only Sustainable Edge, the authors describe a dynamic new source of competitive advantage - accelerated capability building - that forces managers to discard their myopic focus on existing resources and fundamentally rethink strategy development and the nature of the firm." "Hagel and Brown describe the migration path companies will pursue to build this sustainable edge: deepen distinctive internal capabilities (dynamic specialization); mobilize the resources of other specialized companies (connectivity and coordination); and accelerate learning across broad networks of enterprises (productive friction)."

"Using examples of diverse companies already undergoing this transformation, The Only Sustainable Edge outlines specific actions executives must undertake now to position their organizations for the future."--Jacket.
