Seeing Around Corners: How to Spot Inflection Points in Business Before They Happen
Join us for our Book Club series! We will discuss Seeing Around Corners: How to Spot Inflection Points in Business Before They Happen by Rita McGrath, a guide to spotting inflection points early and harnessing these disruptive influences for a strategic advantage.
About the Book
Paradigmatic shifts in the business landscape, known as inflection points, can either create new, entrepreneurial opportunities (see Amazon and Netflix) or they can lead to devastating consequences (e.g., Blockbuster and Toys R Us). Leaders who can “see around corners” - that is, spot the disruptive inflection points developing before they hit - are poised to succeed in this market.
Columbia Business School Professor and corporate consultant Rita McGrath contends that e seemingly overnight shift is the final stage of a process that has been subtly building for some time. Armed with the right strategies and tools, businesses can see these inflection points coming and use them to gain a competitive advantage.
Note: Reading the book in advance is encouraged, but it’s not required.
