New Patterns of
Power and Profit

A Guide to Competitive Advantage
in the Evolving Information Age

About the Book

Information changes everything, from corporate strategy to the behavior of individual consumers, and from our selection of products to purchase to our election of our most senior government officials. The net brings us greater access to everything, while threatening our privacy in ways that we could not imagine even a dozen years ago. This is, indeed, the digital transformation of everything.

How should corporations respond? How should individuals plan, from choosing a career, to managing their investments, to protecting their families? While the changes can seem overwhelming, the book introduces a few simple patterns that allow us to understand what is happening, and what will happen next. Rather than be swept along by the flood of information-driven change, the reader will learn to surf the waves of change for sustainable competitive advantage.
