Overview

The New Pioneers: The Men And Women Who Are Transforming The Workplace And The Marketplace by Thomas Petzinger Jr.

The New Pioneers introduces the entrepreneurs who are revolutionizing the way America does business — from bankers to bakers, weavers to Web designers, manufacturers to medical researchers. In dozens of entertaining case histories and personal profiles, Thomas Petzinger shows that old-fashioned corporations are losing out to innovators engaged in creating collaborative workplaces, a value-added marketplace, and an economy overflowing with opportunity. Through compelling storytelling and incisive analysis, he illuminates how and why:

  • Technology is replacing economies of scale with economies of scope and locality
  • Today's entrepreneurs are redefining the meaning of "niche"
  • Radical compensation and motivation strategies are establishing a new kind of workforce
  • The family firm can serve as a model for all business
  • The new business ethos signals a return to fundamental values
