Your company is turning in regular profits every year, and its market share is only getting bigger. Competitors can’t touch you. So why is your stock price so sluggish? The answer is as simple as it is cruel: investors aren’t interested in history, and they already know you’re profitable and competitive that knowledge is baked into your stock price.

The hard reality is that a competitive advantage just isn’t enough. Investors want companies to surprise them with unexpected value, which means that you can outperform market expectations only if you as a leader know how to find, create, and deliver a series of multiple competitive advantages.

This is why a corporate theory is so important. A good corporate theory provides a compass for those at the strategic helm, guiding their decisions about what assets and activities to pursue, what investments to make, and what strategies to adopt. Behind every long-term corporate success story lies a basic theory about how that company creates value.

In Beyond Competitive Advantage, strategy professor Todd Zenger describes what makes a great corporate theory and helps readers understand the many tensions and trade-offs they’ll face as they apply the theory to meet the challenge of market expectations.

Based on years of research and analysis, Beyond Competitive Advantage provides managers and executives with a framework for both sustaining value and creating growth.

Todd Zenger is the N. Eldon Tanner Chair in Strategy and Strategic Leadership at the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah and holds the University of Utah designation as a Presidential Professor.

Review:

Zenger’s important new study argues that today’s successful strategist needs to develop a corporate theory of value creation’ that can provide ongoing guidance in making more coherent decisions.” Forbes

The book illuminates these ideas in depth, looking at various aspects of strategy your firm might encounter, including acquisitions and building relationships with partners. Zenger offers enough examples to provide clarity about how to apply this advancement to your firm’s competitive advantage.” The Globe & Mail

Beyond Competitive Advantage will make you reconsider creating and sustaining corporate value as well as your role in the process.” Strategic Finance Magazine

Drawing from companies that have done this successfully, such as Disney, Zenger provides ample reasons for a company to pursue its own unique corporate theory.” TD magazine (Association for Talent Development)

ADVANCE PRAISE for Beyond Competitive Advantage:

Ryan Smith, founder and CEO, Qualtrics
Those of us who lead rapidly growing businesses know there is a lot more to a successful company than its sources of competitive advantage. Todd Zenger’s concept of a corporate theory provides us with that 'more.' He shows us how to go beyond short-term strategy in order to build businesses that make a big impact and endure. Beyond Competitive Advantage will help all business leaders ask smarter questions about the big challenges they face.”

Jim Turley, retired Chairman and CEO, Ernst & Young
Todd Zenger provides business leaders with a robust framework for making wiser decisions about where to play and how to win. And his theory of corporate advantage offers the most convincing explanation I’ve heard about what sets great companies apart from good ones.”

Jan Rivkin, Bruce V. Rauner Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School
How can you create value again and again in an uncertain world? You need a theory that guides you toward bets that your firm is uniquely qualified to win. Todd Zenger mixes practical examples with the latest scholarship to show how a great corporate theory can help you decide what markets to pursue, which assets to assemble, and how to organize and lead.”

Julian Birkinshaw, Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, London Business School
Todd Zenger tackles a classic problem: How does a large corporation create sustained value for its shareholders? Built on decades of careful academic study, Beyond Competitive Advantage is full of surprising and important insights about how some companies are able to beat the odds by developing a clear and distinct point of view.”

Gregory Goff, CEO, Tesoro Corporation
Todd Zenger’s concept of the corporate theory is a great guide for developing and changing strategies over time and provides a compelling explanation of why some companies consistently turn in superior performance. As a CEO, I am constantly challenged to create value, and Todd’s insights are invaluable.”
