Invest in the future, but meet your short-term goals. Support entrepreneurial risk-taking, but don't lose the company money. Streamline your operation, but make it a great place to work.
When Giants Learn to Dance is the first comprehensive business strategy book to address these and many other pressing challenges facing companies and careers today - an award-winning work that is sure to become the definitive guide to business success in the 1990s. Rosabeth Moss Kanter, the renowned Harvard Business School professor who helped inject entrepreneurial dynamism into mainstream corporate America with her landmark 1983 best-seller The Change Masters, reveals how to swing past the dangers of both hierarchical stagnation and go-for-broke innovation - and waltz toward renewed success. And she tells you how to keep your career in step with corporate America's new and increasingly complex rhythms.
Based on a wide-ranging five-year study of scores of America's top companies, including Kodak, IBM, AT&T, Ford, and CBS, Professor Kanter shows how achieving fewer management levels, greater responsiveness to change, and an openness to strategic alliances can lead to a more dynamic corporate environment.
The new key to a fast-track career is a flexible package of skills and services that Professor Kanter details with authority and vison. Comprehensive and challenging, her blueprint for success is must reading for anyone in business who wants to stay competitive in the 1990s.
