Explore how entrepreneurial thinking can dramatically improve your work, life and relationships
Having the drive, ambition and inspiration to start a new business takes a special mind-set and self-confidence think Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg. It s no wonder that we regard successful entrepreneurs as modern-day magicians, transforming sometimes-radical ideas into global brands that change the way we live our lives. But what if that spirit and drive were applied to the world outside of business start-ups?
An entrepreneur seeks to build something from nothing, to take an inspired idea and make it a reality. In "How to Think Like an Entrepreneur, "Philip Delves Broughton will explore what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur the ability to disrupt the status quo and generate fresh perspectives and ultimately lead us to the heart of great entrepreneurial thinking: an understanding of our deepest human needs. By harnessing the passion, verve and limitless imagination of an entrepreneur, this book will show you new ways to improve your business, but also your life and relationships."
This is the eBook version of the printed book.
Like an old-fashioned three-legged race, the business and technology sides of any company are running today with the left leg of one tied to the right leg of the other. Some companies understand that and run well; some don't. The top executives interviewed in this book know where competitive leaders are headed.
Winning the Three Legged Race is the first major output of the new Business Technology Management (BTM) Institute, reflecting insights from world-class experts in industry and academia. It gives enterprise, line-of-business, and IT leaders a powerful framework for optimizing areas critical to producing sustainable value from technology:
1. Strategy, planning, and management.
2. Technology investment.
3. Strategic enterprise architecture.
4. Governance and organization.
For each area, the authors identify implications for ordered processes, organizational structures, information requirements, and technology. Winning the Three Legged Race introduces the BTM Maturity Model: a breakthrough benchmark for setting priorities and mapping effective change paths. The authors support their framework with up-to-the-minute data, new case studies, executive interviews, and Top 10 Action Lists that empower decision-makers to act--and get results.
