BNT Thought Leadership Book coming out this summer


Just wanted to let everyone know that a book on BNT is at the printers and coming out this summer. SAP has purchased several pre-production copies, so let me know if you'd like one for your summer reading 😊

Its an edited volume with chapters contributed by the world's most prominent thought leaders in business and academia.

Companies are gaining competitive advantage through networked business models, tapping into talent across the globe to defend themselves against commoditization and disruptive innovation. Rather than rigid u201Cbuilt-to-lastu201D systems and processes, the new era instead calls for fluid,u201Cbuilt-to-adaptu201D networks in which each company focuses on its differentiation and relies increasingly on its partners, suppliers,and customers to supply the rest.

The primary goal of the book is to explore BNT from its various angles and provide practical guidance to successfully engage in BNT. Chapters outline the depth and breadth of BNT's impact on the organization, covering topics such as customer value, supply networks, product leadership, assets, operations, innovation, human resources, and IT.

Contributors include: Philip Lay, Geoffrey Moore, Marco Iansiti, Ross Sullivan, Mohanbir Sawhney, Ranjay Gulati, David Kletter, N. Venkatraman, John Hagel III, John Seely Brown, Gautam Kasthurirangan, Randall H. Russell, Henry Chesbrough, Jeffrey H. Dyer, Andrew McAfee
