Review:

How do you see the world clearly when it's changing too fast for most of us to comprehend? Actor Jay Gregory's smooth, calming narration of Blur makes the blurring lines between production and service seem as simple and logical as a tape measure. This is an age in which you don't just sell a product to a customer, you have to be prepared to sell him an upgrade in six months. In other words, no product is ever the end product. Gregory makes this sound reassuring rather than frightening. If you're in business, you've got a blueprint for success. If you're an investor, this is the roadmap to the companies best equipped to profit off the rapid-fire economic shifts. (Running time: three hours, two cassettes) --Lou Schuler

Book Description Little, Brown Company, United States, 1999. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Warner Books ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Welcome to the new economy - a world where the rate of change is so fast it s only a blur, where the clear lines distinguishing buyer from seller, product from service, employee from entrepreneur are disappearing. To profit from these revolutionary patterns of business, you need a dynamic guide to the new economy. You need BLUR. In this book, Stan Davis and Chris Meyer deliver more than a guided tour to these momentous shifts. They offer readers a working model to illustrate and benefit from the new rules of the connected economy, where advantage is temporary and nothing is fixed in time or space. Showcasing the practices of dozens of enterprises exploring the new frontiers of business - from to DreamWorks SKG to MBNA America - Davis and Meyer build a new framework for delivering and capturing value, evaluating success, developing strategy, and managing organizations in an economic world no longer determined by static measures of supply and demand. BLUR provides a lens for bringing the emerging economic landscape into focus - a world in which change is constant; knowledge and imagination are more valuable than physical capital; products and services are blended as offers ; transactions give way to exchanges ; and physical markets take on the characteristics of financial markets. This world rewards those who buck convention, like MCI, which has reorganized every six months to release creativity, or David Bowie, who has sold options on his future earnings as an artist. Adaptability is paramount, as more companies build permeable networks of business relationships with suppliers, distributors, employees, and even competitors, and individuals become free agents, contractingtheir services to the highest bidders. BLUR challenges you to question every assumption you hold about how business is conducted, and encourages you to experiment at the edges of business. BLUR outlines nothing less than a revolution in business and consumer culture. Will you watc. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780446675338
