Lezioni di strategia riunisce le best practice del management strategico e dell’imprenditorialità nel settore high-tech, offrendo suggerimenti che saranno preziosi sia per i fondatori di start-up sia per i dirigenti d’azienda. Tra il 1968 e il 1976, Bill Gates, Andy Grove e Steve Jobs fondarono tre aziende che avrebbero trasformato il mondo della tecnologia, creando valore per oltre mille miliardi di dollari e cambiando la nostra vita quotidiana. Come hanno raggiunto questi risultati straordinari? Lezioni di strategia ripercorre per la prima volta in parallelo la storia di questi tre imprenditori, i loro successi e insuccessi, i punti in comune e le differenze, rivelando le strategie e le tattiche di business con cui hanno costruito le loro aziende. Da quasi trent’anni David Yoffie e Michael Cusumano studiano questi tre leader e le loro aziende, e in questo illuminante libro rivelano come Gates, Grove e Jobs abbiano adottato un approccio analogo per strategia ed esecuzione, differenziandosi però dalla concorrenza grazie alla focalizzazione su cinque regole. 1. Guardare avanti, ragionare a ritroso: dopo aver deciso dove volevano che le loro aziende si trovassero in futuro, hanno ragionato, all’indietro, per identificare i passi da compiere in vista di quel traguardo. 2. Scommettere in grande, ma senza mettere a rischio l’azienda: i tre Ad hanno accettato enormi scommesse strategiche, ma raramente hanno esposto a rischi eccessivi la redditività delle loro aziende. 3. Costruire piattaforme ed ecosistemi: i leader dell’alta tecnologia hanno costruito piattaforme di settore che stimolassero altre aziende a creare prodotti e servizi complementari che incrementino il valore della piattaforma. 4. Sfruttare il vantaggio e la forza: Gates, Grove e Jobs sono riusciti a trasformare i punti di forza degli avversari in talloni d’Achille; e a schiacciare la concorrenza facendo leva sulle proprie ingenti risorse (dopo averle accumulate). 5. Plasmare l’azienda intorno alla propria ancora personale: la competenza di Gates sul software, la devozione di Grove per la disciplina dei processi, l’ossessione di Jobs per il design: i tre Ad hanno incentrato le proprie aziende sui loro punti di forza, compensando al contempo i loro punti deboli.

The authors of the bestselling Competing on Internet Time (a Business Week top 10 book) analyze the strategies, principles, and skills of three of the most successful and influential figures in business—Bill Gates, Andy Grove, and Steve Jobs—offering lessons for all managers and entrepreneurs on leadership, strategy and execution. In less than a decade, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Andy Grove founded three companies that would define the world of technology and transform our lives. At their peaks, Microsoft, Apple, and Intel were collectively worth some $1.5 trillion. Strategy Rules examines these three individuals collectively for the first time—their successes and failures, commonalities and differences—revealing the business strategies and practices they pioneered while building their firms. David B. Yoffie and Michael A. Cusumano have studied these three leaders and their companies for more than thirty years, while teaching business strategy, innovation and entrepreneurship at Harvard and MIT. In this enlightening guide, they show how Gates, Grove, and Jobs approached strategy and execution in remarkably similar ways—yet markedly differently from their erstwhile competitors—keeping their focus on five strategic rules. Strategy Rules brings together the best practices in strategic management and high-tech entrepreneurship from three path-breaking entrepreneurs who emerged as CEOs of huge global companies. Their approaches to formulating strategy and building organizations offer unique insights for start-up executives as well as the heads of modern multinationals.

The Missing Link to Toyota-Style Success—LEAN LEADERSHIP Winner of the 2012 Shingo Research and Professional Publications Award “This great book reveals the secret ingredient to lean success: lean leadership. Not only is it a pleasure to read, but it is also deep and enlightening. This book is an absolute must-read for anyone interested in lean: it’s both an eye opener and a game changer.” —Michael Ballé, Ph.D., coauthor of The Gold Mine and The Lean Manager “This will immediately be recognized as the most important book ever published to understand and guide ‘True North Lean’ and the goal of perpetual business excellence.” —Ross E. Robson, President and CEO, DnR Lean, LLC, and the original Director of The Shingo Prize “An excellent book that will shape leadership development for decades to come.” —Karen Martin, Principal, Karen Martin & Associates, and author of The Kaizen Event Planner About the Book: TOYOTA. The name signifies greatness— world-class cars and game-changing business thinking. One key to the Toyota Motor Company’s unprecedented success is its famous production system and its lesser-known product development program. These strategies consider the end user at every turn and have become the model for the global lean business movement. All too often, organizations adopting lean miss the most critical ingredient—lean leadership. Toyota makes enormous investments in carefully selecting and intensively developing leaders who fit its unique philosophy and culture. Thanks to the company’s lean leadership approach, explains Toyota Way author Jeffrey Liker and former Toyota executive Gary Convis, the celebrated carmaker has set into motion a drive for continuous improvement at all levels of its business. This has allowed for: Constant growth: Toyota increased profitability for 58 consecutive years—slowing down only in the face of 2008’s worldwide financial difficulties, the recall crisis, and the worst Japanese earthquake of the century. Unstoppable inventiveness: Toyota’s approach to innovative thinking and problem solving has resulted in top industry ratings and incredible customer satisfaction, while allowing the company to weather these three crises in rapid succession and to come out stronger. Strong branding and respect: Toyota’s reputation was instrumental in the company’s ability to withstand the recalls-driven media storm of 2010. But what looked to some to be a sinking ship is once again running under a full head of steam. Perhaps the Toyota culture had weakened, but lean leadership was the beacon that showed the way back. In fact, writes Liker, the company is “as good and perhaps a better model for lean leadership than it ever has been.” of innovation and growth. Yet, Industry Week reports that just 2 percent of companies using lean processes can likewise claim to have had long-term success. What the other 98 percent lack is unified leadership with a common method and philosophy. If you want to get lean, you have to take it to the leadership level. The Toyota Way to Lean Leadership shows you how.

The purpose of Hacking Leadership is to equip leaders at every level with an actionable framework to identify blind spots and close leadership gaps. The bulk of the book is based on actionable, topical leadership and management hacks to bridge eleven gaps every business needs to cross in order to create a culture of leadership: leadership, purpose, future, mediocrity, culture, talent, knowledge, innovation, expectation, complexity, and failure. Each chapter: Gives readers specific techniques to identify, understand, and most importantly, implement individual, team and organizational leadership hacks. Addresses blind spots and leverage points most leaders and managers haven’t thought about, which left unaddressed, will adversely impact growth, development, and performance. All leaders have blind-spots (gaps), which often go undetected for years or decades, and sadly, even when identified the methods for dealing with them are outdated and ineffective – they need to be hacked. Showcases case studies from the author’s consulting practice, serving as a confidant with more than 150 public company CEOs. Some of those corporate clients include: AT&T, Bank of America, Deloitte, EMC, Humana, IBM, JP Morgan Chase, Merrill Lynch, PepsiCo, and other leading global brands.
