Hamel and Prahalad caution that complacent managers who get too comfortable in doing things the way they’ve always done will see their companies fall behind.

For instance, the authors consider the battle between IBM and Apple in the s. Entrenched as the leading mainframe-computer maker, IBM failed to see the potential market for personal computers.

That left the door wide open for Apple, which envisioned a computer for every man, woman, and child. The authors write, “At worst, laggards follow the path of c.k.prrahalad familiarity. Challengers, on the other hand, follow the path of greatest opportunity, wherever it leads. Definitely not for dilettantes, Competing for the Future is for managers who are serious getting their companies in front.

Rejecting recent downsizing and reengineering trends, they present their blueprint for transforming an industry’s structure, which, they stress, is the primary challenge facing today’s managers. The authors focus on tomorrow’s competition and opportunities, vitalizing the company for the future and outrunning competitors to “get to the future first. Concepts are presented with numerous visual aids.

Competing for the Future – Gary Hamel – Google Books

Please try again later. Fod the first half had some c.k.prahakad pearls of wisdom. This is a book that generally speaks to a “senior manager” who is capable of steering company culture but I truly believe anyone can change the culture in their own space.

The book did a great job of emphasizing the importance of never standing still and the constant need for change. Yes, not new information but to hear it and see examples is important to your organization’s growth. Many great examples of real companies competing from less advantageous positions and ultimately outperforming their competition.

Again, the first half is very valuable. I struggled to find more value in the second half of the book. In summary, a very good book to help you evaluate your own competitive standing and help you adjust to succeed in the future.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Competing for the Future is a classic MBA aand that closes the gap between the crazy ideas of innovators and enterpreneurs and Porter style strategy to make actual money. Hamel and Prahalad have nailed the concepts and put them in a 3 stages methodology full with examples. Many of the examples that were a bit futuristic are more than common place today. The only thing that maybe is lacking is some additional hard data. Overall highly recommended if you are serious about enterpreneurship and leadership.

One person found this helpful. Totally worth reading it. As the authors themselves put it, it’s a book about making a difference. With plenty of real life experiences, the authors lead us to learn to enlarge our vision and knowledge It is many years since I first bought this book, and indeed distributed copies to a number of people.


For mentoring purposes I revisited its contents. With the passage of time certain of the content c.k.prajalad become outdated, but the generic principles remain timeless, especially in the chapters to which I refer. Competing for the Future is a must read competign every manager and entrepreneur who wants to change the world. The book does not provide ready-made recipe to catch up with the future, this book teaches you how to think about the future.

I highly recommend it.

Competing for the Future

This stunning book boldly and eloquently trounces several “givens” America’s business leaders have been feeding us for the past two decades. First off, Hamel and Prahalad see America’s manufacturing decline as anything but inevitable and corporate downsizing as anything but responsible management.

What is also strangely refreshing is the authors’ gushing yet well-reasoned praise for Japanese firms, which in the year gives the book comepting another, though perhaps unintentional, contrarian edge.

Can’t wait to hear their take on the Ciscos, Nortels, Lucents and Amazons of the last seven years. Although a little dated in this edition, the principles were very good. Big on building strategic architecture competint core competencies. Nevertheless, this will work.
