Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder: Nassim Nicholas Taleb: 9781400067824: Amazon.com: Books

Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder

~ Nassim Nicholas Taleb (author) More about this product
List Price: $30.00
Price: $20.39
You Save: $9.61 (32%)

"In The Black Swan, Taleb showed us that highly improbable and unpredictable events underlie almost everything about our world. In Antifragile, Taleb stands uncertainty on its head, making it desirable, even necessary, and proposes that things be built in an antifragile manner. The antifragile is beyond the resilient or robust. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better and better. 
 
Furthermore, the antifragile is immune to prediction errors and protected from adverse events. Why is the city-state better than the nation-state, why is debt bad for you, and why is what we call “efficient” not efficient at all? Why do government responses and social policies protect the strong and hurt the weak? Why should you write your resignation letter before even starting on the job? How did the sinking of the Titanic save lives? The book spans innovation by trial and error, life decisions, politics, urban planning, war, personal finance, economic systems, and medicine. And throughout, in addition to the street wisdom of Fat Tony of Brooklyn, the voices and recipes of ancient wisdom, from Roman, Greek, Semitic, and medieval sources, are loud and clear.
 
Antifragile is a blueprint for living in a Black Swan world."

The Three Rules: How Exceptional Companies Think: Michael E. Raynor, Mumtaz Ahmed: 9781591846147: Amazon.com: Books

The Three Rules: How Exceptional Companies Think

Product by Brand: Portfolio Hardcover ~ Mumtaz Ahmed (author) More about this product
List Price: $29.95
Price: $19.96
You Save: $9.99 (33%)

"Finally, an answer to the ultimate business question: How do some companies achieve exceptional performance over the long term?
 
In every sector, there’s an outlier. In the phar­maceutical industry, it’s Merck. In discount retail, it’s Family Dollar. It used to be Wrig­ley in candy and Maytag in appliances. Other superstars have been hidden in plain sight, like Heartland Express in trucking or Linear Technology in semiconductors. How do these exceptional companies deliver superior perfor­mance over the long run despite facing the same constraints as competitors? What are they doing differently? What can we learn from them?
 
Michael E. Raynor and Mumtaz Ahmed have analyzed data on more than 25,000 com­panies spanning forty-five years. Their five-year study began with a sophisticated statistical analysis to identify which companies have truly exceptional performance, 344 in all.
 
In collaboration with teams of researchers, Raynor and Ahmed then put a carefully chosen representative sample of twenty-seven com­panies under the microscope to uncover what made the stand-out performers different. They found that exceptional companies, when faced with difficult decisions, follow three rules:

Better before cheaper. They rarely compete on price.Revenue before cost. They drive profits through price and volume, not thrift.There are no other rules. Everything else is up for grabs, and they are willing to change anything to remain true to the first two rules.

 
The rules provide an indispensable compass that any company can use to chart its own path to greatness. Is it better to keep price down or invest in creating value that commands a higher price? Should you focus on talent and develop­ing the abilities of your people or build processes to extend the capabilities of your organization? How about acquiring a sizable competitor to secure economies of scale—or a small start-up to gain access to new technology? According to Raynor and Ahmed, the right answers to these and just about every other question are the ones most closely aligned with the rules.
 
The Three Rules is built on a powerful combina­tion of large-scale data analysis and in-depth case studies. Its guidance will increase the chance that your organization can become truly exceptional."

TEDxBayArea - August 2011 - Michael Raynor - Innovation: Minimizing failure or maximizing success?

"Innovation: Minimizing failure or maximizing success?

For too long, our pursuit of successful innovation has often focused on minimizing failure. We think of a successful innovation as a needle-in-a-haystack quest. Because we typically don't know how to increase the odds of success, we seek to "fail fast," be "lean," and "iterate."

We can do better. In a series of experiments using a portfolio of 48 businesses funded by a high-tech company's new business arm, Michael Raynor of Deloitte Consulting LLP shows that Disruption Theory can increase predictive accuracy by up to 50 percent, in his new book The Innovator's Manifesto. The implication is that it is possible to identify winning ideas at the earliest stages of development and shape them in ways that can increase the likelihood of long-term survival.

Raynor will describe his research, explain how Disruption can enable more accurate prediction, and outline the implications for how we can manage innovation to take advantage of these insights."
