About the Author:

Stan Davis, a well-known visionary business thinker, is the author of eight influential books, including the bestselling Future Perfect, recipient of Tom Peters’ “Book of the Decade” Award. Formerly on the faculty of Harvard Business School, Columbia University, and Boston University, he’s now an independent consultant and research fellow at Ernst & Young’s Center for Business Innovation in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Christopher Meyer, a leading business consultant and lecturer, is director of Ernst and Young’s Center for Business Innovation. With over twenty years’ experience in general management and economic consulting, he is an authority on the evolution of the information economy and its impact on business.

From Publishers Weekly:

In our aging postindustrial era, we're witnessing a technological explosion notes Davis, a Boston-based business consultant, and in this short but deeply provocative book he sets out "to give new meaning to time, space and matter in shaping tomorrow's business and organization." Readers will consistently nod in recognition as Davis ticks off what he sees happening today in business management as it has grown from the time of Henry Ford and GM's Alfred Sloan to what he considers the "hello from the future" that the Federal Express Corporationtoday's leading example of the holistic management approach as opposed to the mechanicalis shouting to business leaders. His insights into our already emerging "future perfect" economy of process, information and a host of intangibles made possible by the microchip is eye-opening. Admiring readers will conclude that Davis matches his own description of a certain Pakistani financial wizard"Gandhi in banker's pinstripes." 40,000 first printing; major ad/promo; Fortune Book Club and Macmillan Book Club alternates.
