To stay ahead of the wave in today's rapidly changing business environment, successful business leaders must precisely forecast the future and efficiently employ new concepts and methods to drive their competitive edge ahead of their competition with improved processes and available products. To meet these goals, leaders are on a continual search to find the "Six Sigmas" of tomorrow that will replace the "TQMs and JITs" of yesterday.

The Next Generation Business Handbook culls the knowledge and experience of promising minds from the world's top business schools, such as Harvard, Sloan at MIT, The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania , Kellogg at Northwestern University , Yale, London Business School , INSEAD, IMD Switzerland, amongst others. Under the leadership of Subir Chowdhury, a top business thinker, these international next generation thinkers discuss every aspect of business and lay the groundwork for the key business concepts of tomorrow.

The Next Generation Business Handbook offers a complete presentation of all aspects of considerations organized around Chowdhury's own next generation business model.

As seen from this NGB model, these six critical business areas are the key forces driving the excitement needs of the customers of today and the future. Keeping this in mind, this handbook is divided into six critical sections, entitled "Leadership," "Strategy," "Customer Management," "Entrepreneurship," "People Management," and "Networked Business."


"This handbook is for those who inspire others, for those who are focused more on people than on the individual, for those who celebrate diversity, for those who constantly search for the dream, and for those who want to reshape the globe of tomorrow."
