"How can you and your company stay ahead in a world out of balance? How can you prepare for the opportunities and threats that come along with burgeoning populations in unfamiliar markets, rising anti-corporate activism, emerging oil and water shortages, and constantly changing consumer needs? The answer, according to Paul Laudicina, is foresight and flexibility. He has identified the crucial keys to success in turbulent times. Many companies focus their attention on internal operations and short-term goals - and blame their shortcomings on factors outside their control. But "value-building companies" look onward and outward - anticipating problems, managing risks, and developing new growth opportunities. They are prepared for the future. They are in control of their destinies. And you can be, too."--BOOK JACKET.
