Prolific business analyst Ram Charan makes you realize that massive sections of the world the West once dominated economically have now leveled the playing field in market size and business capability. As his excellent case studies show, Charan understands the world of emerging business markets and developing world companies. He contrasts fast-growing, risk-taking, customer-share-oriented “South” companies, from the Southern Hemisphere, with established “North” companies. Northern competitors seem stuck in older methods that revolve around core competency, cost-control and the powerful short-term financial system that owns most of them. Charan’s “tilt” will take a long time to play out and portends significant disruption. getAbstract recommends his analysis to leaders of businesses that face international competition.
