Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Why are companies blindsided? The speed of change, driven by new technology, mergers, and competition mean the business landscape is more chaotic than ever before. While it took TV ten years to attract ten million users, it took Netscape twenty-eight months, Hotmail eighteen months, and Napster only nine months.

In a world where chaos is the norm, Blindsided by Jim Harris presents a series of practical techniques to help business leaders identify trends earlier and more accurately predict their impact when the tumult of the market threatens to throw plans off course.

Review:
Organizations used to have stable industries, predictable customers, and five and ten year strategic plans. Today, whole industries are being turned completely upside down in two years. Seemingly healthy companies that can't recognize and respond quickly to change may be dead but just don't know it yet.

In October 2001, Polaroid went filed for bankruptcy protection. The company that came to define instant photography was blindsided by the rapid rise of digital photography. Microsoft was initially blindsided by the rapid rise of the Web.

Organizations are living in a fog - emergent trends, information explosion, technological innovation, shifting regulation, changing competition and reversing markets. We are living in what John Chambers, CEO of Cisco calls "low visibility." While driving in the fog at 60 mph with only 10 feet of visibility, organizations have to either slow down (we can't - we're being exhorted to go faster), or accelerate recognition and response to change six fold.

Central Questions
  • How can business leaders avoid being blindsided?
  • Why are companies and even whole industries blindsided?
  • What forces guarantee that organizations will be blindsided with increasing frequency?
  • How can business leaders identify early warning signs?
  • How can you put in place systems and structures that will prevent your organization from being blindsided?
  • And then knowing all this how can you blindside your competition?
