Clayton Christensen: Innovators Dilemma
Andy Grove: Only The Paranoid Survives (a real world example of executive strategic thinking)
The simple concept of a Strategic Inflection Point is powerful; and I have used it many times. Having an experienced dispassionate "outsider" can help the insiders realize that they are at a strategic inflection point and, in my consulting role, I hope I can help executives grapple with some of the most challenging business issues related to Strategic Inflection Points.
