Editors Daniel Pantaleo and Nirmal Pal offer a comprehensive examination of strategy and execution in a rapidly changing world. The contributors to their book identify the primary factors driving change, the most important kinds of innovation for today’s businesses, the essential elements of innovation strategy and the issues likely to emerge as challenges or obstacles. The book is well-organized and systematic, though at times densely written and difficult to follow. Its discussion of knowledge workers is particularly useful, because it exposes and debunks common myths about these increasingly important professionals. getAbstract recommends this book to knowledge workers and their managers, and to executives and others who must manage change.
