Summary of The Spider's Strategy
Creating Networks to Avert Crisis, Create Change, and Really Get Ahead
Your firm networks with many partners, but is your spiderweb strong? Are you prepared if disaster takes out a partner?
Dr. Amit S. Mukherjee, a brilliant corporate strategist, outlines why the networked structures that large firms rely upon can also create significant hazards for them if breakdowns occur. Given today’s interconnectivity, companies that cannot quickly adapt to their partners’ emergencies may themselves suffer catastrophic losses. Mukherjee details the four primary capabilities that networked businesses must possess and explains how to achieve them. getAbstract advises that senior and middle managers will profit from this thoughtful book and its instructive case histories.
