Reconfigure your products and services: Transform your offerings to make them clearly superior to competitors
Redefine your business and associated key metrics: Change how you do business or how your customers do business in ways that dramatically boost performance
Anticipate or exploit industry shifts: Capitalize on changes before competitors do
Create a new market space: Trigger the emergence of a new market
Every marketbusting move is illustrated in practice through vivid company examplesincluding cautionary tales that alert you to potential pitfalls you may encounter. Action-oriented tools and checklists provide concrete guidance in finding opportunities across your own business platform, executing your chosen move successfully, and exploiting new opportunities to maximize their bottomline impact. The book also provides guidelines for avoiding common implementation challenges and for developing the organizational alignment needed to smooth execution.
