Between 1968 and 1976, Bill Gates, Andy Grove, and Steve Jobs launched three companies that would define the world of high technology, create more than a trillion dollars in value, and transform our lives. How did they realize these incredible achievements? Strategy Rules examines these three individuals collectively for the first time—their successes and failures, comonalities and differences—revealing the business strategies and practices they pioneered while building their firms. Eminent business professors David Yoffie and Michael Cusumano have studied these three leaders and their companies for nearly thirty years, while teaching business strategy, innovation, and entrepreneurship at Harvard Business School and the MIT Sloan School of Management. In this enlightening guide, they show how Gates, Grove, and Jobs became masters of strategy. As CEOs, each approached strategy and execution in remarkably similar ways—yet markedly differently from their erstwhile competitors—keeping their focus on five rules: Look Forward, Reason Back: They determined where they want their companies to be in the future and could "reason back" to identify the moves that would take them there. Make Big Bets, Without Betting the Company: All three men made enormous strategic bets but rarely took gambles that put the financial viability of their companies at undue risk. Build Platforms and Ecosystems: Technology leaders have to create industry platforms that enable other firms to create complementary products and services that make the platforms increasingly valuable. Exploit Leverage and Power: Gates, Grove, and Jobs often turned opponents’ strengths into weaknesses and used enormous resources (once they had them) to dominate competitors. Shape the Company around Your Personal Anchor: From Gates’ understanding of software to Grove’s devotion to process discipline and Jobs’ obsession with design, all three built their companies around their personal strengths while compensating for their weaknesses. Strategy Rules brings together the best practices in strategic management and high-tech entrepreneurship, providing unique insights for start-up executives as well as the heads of modern multinationals.

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.

Only once did David Foster Wallace give a public talk on his views on life, during a commencement address given in 2005 at Kenyon College. The speech is reprinted for the first time in book form in THIS IS WATER. How does one keep from going through their comfortable, prosperous adult life unconsciously? How do we get ourselves out of the foreground of our thoughts and achieve compassion? The speech captures Wallace's electric intellect as well as his grace in attention to others. After his death, it became a treasured piece of writing reprinted in The Wall Street Journal and the London Times, commented on endlessly in blogs, and emailed from friend to friend. Writing with his one-of-a-kind blend of causal humor, exacting intellect, and practical philosophy, David Foster Wallace probes the challenges of daily living and offers advice that renews us with every reading.
