Creating and Dominating New Markets

Author: Peter Meyer

From Library Journal: Meyer heads a consulting group in California that helps businesses create and dominate markets with new products. According to Meyer, "new markets are the product of someone's recognizing a potential, finding the right solution, and bringing that solution to market in a way that works." Meyer's prescription for success in new-market ventures includes detailed discussions of the risks and rewards and the necessary skills for operational managers, executives, etc. ...Throughout these discussions, he inserts accounts of many well-known companies that engaged in these ventures (including FedEx, AOL, Microsoft, Lucent, Motorola, and Nokia) and analyzes their successes and disappointments. This timely and thought-provoking book is a good choice for corporate, academic, and public library business collections.
