Competing in the Third Wave: The Ten Key Management Issues of the Information Age by Jeremy Hope, Tony Hope

Hope and Hope argue that the "third wave economy" will be one driven by technology, globalization, and deregulation, and that the key to success in this economy will be the ability of organizations to manage knowledge and intellectual assets effectively. Competing in the Third Wave covers ten topics ranging from strategy formulation and business organization to cost management and business philosophy. Surveying and synthesizing new and classic management literature (especially useful for those with an incomplete management education), the authors discuss how each function in an organization must learn to tie its actions to overarching strategic needs and support each other's efforts.
