Businesses often find themselves trapped in a competitive dogfight, scratching and clawing for market share with products consumers view as largely undifferentiated. Conventional wisdom suggests that dogfights are to be expected as marketplaces mature, giving rise to the notion that there are "bad" industries where it is unlikely that any company can succeed. But there are notable exceptions in which enlightened executives have changed the rules to grasp the holy grail of business: long-term profitable growth. Rather than joining the dogfights raging within their industry, companies such as Apple, FedEx, and Starbucks have chosen to become metaphorical cats, continuously renewing their distinctive strategies to compete on their own terms. In If You're in a Dogfight, Become a Cat, Leonard Sherman draws on four decades of experience in management consulting, venture capital, and teaching business strategy at Columbia Business School to share practical advice on two of the most vexing issues facing business executives: why is it so hard to achieve long-term profitable growth, and what can companies do to break away from the pack? Sherman takes the reader on a provocative journey through the building blocks of business strategy by challenging conventional wisdom on a number of questions that will redefine management best practices: What should be the overarching purpose of your business? Do you really know what your strategy is? Is there such a thing as a bad industry? Where do great ideas come from and how do I find them? What makes products meaningfully different? What makes and breaks great brands? How and when should I disrupt my own company? What are the imperatives to achieving long-term profitable growth? Filled with dozens of illustrative examples of inspiring successes and dispiriting falls from grace, this book provides deep insights on how to become the cat in a dogfight, whether you are a CEO, mid-level manager, aspiring business school student, or curious observer interested in achieving sustained profitable growth.

Michael Müller entwickelt auf Basis eines identitätsbasierten Markenverständnisses und dem Status quo der Forschung ein Modell zur internationalen Markenstandardisierung. Für die Überprüfung des Modells führt der Autor eine Untersuchung in der Automobilbranche in 13 Ländern durch. Er belegt damit einen inversen U-förmigen Zusammenhang zwischen der Markenstandardisierung und dem Markenwert. Dadurch ist erstmals der empirische Nachweis erbracht, dass eine „glokale“ Markenstrategie eine höhere Erfolgswirkung verspricht als eine globale oder lokale. Kulturelle und politisch-rechtliche Unterschiede der Länder sind dabei zu berücksichtigen.

Zwei Schriftstellerfreunde in London sind durch die Mißgunst des Schicksals zu erbitterten Feinden geworden. Richard Tull, der echte Autor, ist geschlagen von Erfolglosigkeit und hält seine Familie als Rezensent drittklassiger Biographien über Wasser, während Gwyn Barry, der Schmonzettenlieferant, sein Bestsellerglück genießt - bis Richard beschließt, etwas dagegen zu unternehmen. Information ist eine bitterböse Satire auf den Literaturbetrieb, aber vor allem eine Männergeschichte, eine Jagdszene aus der Mitte des Lebens, einer Zeit der Empfindlichkeit, der überlebten Gefühle, der sauer gewordenen Träume; es wird Bilanz gezogen, und das Ergebnis ist zum Heulen.
