9780007307173: Flip: How to Survive and Thrive by Turning Your Business on Its Head

Placing emphasis on flexible, counter-intuitive decision-making, a pioneering young management guru calls for a brand new way of doing business in the current sticky economic conditions, where conventional wisdom fails.

Why is Microsoft turning a blind eye to software piracy in China?
Why has Toyota capped production of the best-selling Scion?
Why did Rupert Murdoch risk $580 million on MySpace?

"Business today requires new perspectives," argues Peter Sheahan, one of the youngest and fastest-rising international business consultants. In Flip he shows that to succeed in turbulent financial times, companies must distinguish themselves by finding a new way of doing business, one that systematically re-examines every single aspect of running a company.

Flip reveals what the superstars of modern business have in common: an ability to "flip" - to think counter-intuitively and then act boldly, with no regard for business-as-usual conventions. The only rule: there are no rules.

Those who heed Sheahan’s proven advice will be well placed to join other "flipstars" including entrepreneurs Richard Branson and Rupert Murdoch, and such visionary companies as Google, Toyota and Apple. By learning to “flip” you can future-proof your organisation and your career while those who run with the pack and stick to the business school curriculum will find themselves perilously left behind.

Presenting perennial wisdom in a fresh new way, Sheahan shows today's decision makers how to embrace change and successfully operate in a challenging economy that runs on new ideas.
