9780071050555: Cutting Edge: Gillette's Journey to Global Leadership

The Gillette Company has literally defined, as well as led, the world shaving market since the founding days of the enterprise in 1901. But more than that, Gillette--as revealed in McKibben's colorful history--has become a world leading manufacturer and marketer of consumer goods in men's and women's grooming products, writing instruments, and alkaline batteries. The modern-day Gillette serves as a shining example for today's managers of how to maintain a commitment to innovation, how to advertise creatively against competitors, and above all, how to translate a consistent vision of global growth into superior results in a competitive world marketplace. Based on extensive interviews with Gillette insiders, Cutting Edge chronicles the successes, failures, and watershed moments in the evolution of a global powerhouse. McKibben's rich portrait serves as an enduring lesson for all competitors who aspire to be truly on the cutting edge. "At a time when many American companies are touting their commitment to marketing and manufacturing in a global environment, Cutting Edge is a useful reminder that some have been doing it for decades." --Washington Post Book World, March 15, 1998
