Book description

The search for competitive advantage serves as the basis for organizational strategy. This book argues that there are four key sources of competitive advantage and financial success that have not been given the attention they deserve. Firstly, that organizational design and management processes may be strategic resources in their own right. Secondly, that organizational design and management processes can be deployed to create new strategic resources. Thirdly, that managers have begun to think of organizational design and management processes in a proactive way rather than seeing them more passively as necessary facilitators of success. Fourthly, that this new way of looking at organization and management requires a search for new ways of structuring organizational design and managerial processes. These points are driven home through case studies of the Danish firms LEGO Group, Vestas Wind Systems, Coloplast, Chr. Hansen, IC Companys and NKT Flexibles.

Reviews

‘This important book turns the spotlight on management innovation as a source of sustainable competitive advantage. Using detailed case studies of six successful Danish companies, [it] make[s] the case that it is just as important for executives to think creatively about how they work, as they do about the products and services they sell. This book has important practical implications for business people, and it offers a useful new theoretical lens through which academics can understand corporate success.’

Julian Birkinshaw - Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, London Business School

‘This book provides great insights in[to] the actual leadership and management processes of key Danish companies.’

Yves Doz - Solvay Chair of Technological Innovation, INSEAD
