ALWAYS A WINNER
Finding Your Competitive Advantage in an Up and Down Economy

"If you learn how to become your own economic forecaster as Always a Winner teaches, you will ensure that a recession will never again catch you or your organization by surprise."
—Peter Navarro, from Always a Winner: Finding Your Competitive Advantage in an Up and Down Economy

A recession can do far more damage to your organization than any of your ten toughest competitors. Without question, this is the most important lesson that business executives have all too painfully learned in the carnage of the 2007–2009 economic crash.

Internationally recognized as an authority on managing the business cycle for competitive advantage, author Peter Navarro shows you how your organization can be a winner over the course of its entire cycle—not just when economic times are good. Always a Winner: Finding Your Competitive Advantage in an Up and Down Economy arms you with all the strategies, tactics, and forecasting tools you will need to profitably manage your organization through every business cycle season—from the best of boom times to the worst economic slumps.

Practical and insightful, Always a Winner offers immediately useful guidance to help your company survive and thrive in the increasingly risky conditions of the twenty-first century, revealing how you can:

  • Forecast movements and key recessionary turning points in the business cycle
  • Implement a set of "battle-tested" strategies over the course of the business cycle
  • Rebuild your organization with a broader strategic business cycle orientation
  • Make your organization more recession-resistant and resilient over the longer term

Peter Navarro's call to action is simple: if you really care about your organization, you will learn to strategically manage the business cycle to create a powerfully competitive and sustainable advantage over your rivals. In the end, you will attain the superior financial performance sought by every executive team in the world.

Companies that carefully monitor the economy can prosper in all phases of the business cycle, a relentless alternation of economic expansions and recessions. Best-selling author and scholar Peter Navarro champions a do-it-yourself approach to forecasting. He says that instead of relying on outside experts, firms should produce their own economic forecasts to ensure optimal decision making in both the upturns and downturns of the business cycle. Navarro provides multiple examples of economic indicators that require no formal education in economics to understand. His book also includes case studies of companies that embraced macroeconomic analysis and of others that ignored the potential of tracking the broad economy. getAbstract recommends this book to any manager who wants to use economic forecasts to make better business decisions.
