The book had lots of good content. An example, "Blur requires that we construct organizational structures that are designed for adaptability, not efficiency." is relative to my thoughts around Agile structures vs more Lean structures in organizations. The biggest problem is the book feels dated. Perhaps there is a newer, updated version with some more modern samples. It was a quick read that gave value despite being outdated.
This was one of the first books on the concept of a connected economyI cherish my copy now as it was a small run book released by Ernst and Young and it is still a very good book to dip back into. Indeed, it was way ahead of its time and most of its points are only noe becoming very real through the social media / social marketing / semantic web spaces
This book is probably becoming a little dated now (who is this Netscape company again?). Unfortunately for this reason it doesn't have the impact it probably did back around the time of the dot com boom. Many of the concepts and ideas which were probably revolutionary at the time are now widely accepted and some are likewise ridiculed.The book does illustrate how fast technology changes and how rapidly we have evolved in such a short time. In that respect its concept of 'Blur' rings true yet I w [...]
I remember being given a copy of this in 1999 and tucking it into my laptop case for a cross-country flight. Oops, distraction and suddenly it's 2015 and still sitting in the pile. It was probably a needed kick in the pants at the time for anybody mired in "this is how things are done" paradigms and practices - less so for those of us already in the trenches, who would've simply seen a whole bunch of affirmation, interspersed with wild-eyed speculation (really, personal securitization?) and a bi [...]
I was working at Ernst and Young Consulting Services when this book came out. Fresh out of graduate school and a new bird to the global management consulting world, this book helped me understand the "new" changes happening around me. This book provided a great new perspective, one that was needed, in the late nineties.
This w fine book, it might be a little out dated but you will learn the difference between a service, product and an offer and the difference between each , how to compete in a connected economy, I enjoyed reading this book.
