Global Remix: The Fight for Competitive Advantage

Global Remix: The Fight for Competitive Advantage

Order from Amazon.co.uk

"Global Remix" is an exciting overview of major global economic trends over the next twenty years and how they will impact upon both businesses and the everyday lives of their employees.

Author Richard Scase combines a discussion of macroeconomic trends and their impact on corporate strategy with a study of how they will affect individual lifestyles. "Global Remix" examines both the challenges faced by Western businesses as a result of the rise of Asian, Eastern European and Latin American economies and highlights the amazing opportunities it affords. Not only are there increasingly wealthy new markets to sell into, but also growing numbers of international travellers from these areas.

Key issues addressed include the business structure of the future; meeting the challenges of the new economic order; new global market opportunities; environmental impacts; and the changing political landscape. This thought-provoking book provides senior and middle managers with ideas and inspiration on how to make this economic revolution work for themselves, their businesses and their employees.

Living in the Corporate Zoo

Living in the Corporate Zoo

Order from Amazon.co.uk

Living in the Corporate Zoo is the sequel to the best-selling Britain in 2010. The latter looked at the broad trends affecting UK business. Living in the Corporate Zoo parachutes us right into the modern battleground - work and career vs. life and family. Scase looks at how our lives have become fragmented and chaotic as workers and consumers and the impact of this on individuals, business and government. Scase tackles a huge range of areas from the life/work balance and personal success in a wireless world to new corporations , cynical consumers and the changing citizen mix.

Living in the Corporate Zoo is certain to be as influential as The State We're In, and as far reaching as The Third Wave. Above all it is the first book to define the new world of work, workers, citizens and consumers.

'No wonder Professor Richard Scase is in such demand as a conference speaker. He has a view on just about everything globalisation, gender politics, management versus leadership, the public and private sectors, work/life balance, emotional intelligence, new technology, customer relationship management. As he says in his introduction: "This is a rather unusual book". I'll say. Living in the Corporate Zoo conveys a strong sense of how lively and unpredictable Scase's platform appearances may be and the result is a wide-ranging and often stimulating read.' - Book of the Month, FM 2002.
