WSJ: The End of Management (Publishers, take note)

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...695579664.html

Quote:
That book documents how market-leading companies have missed game-changing transformations in industry after industryŚcomputers (mainframes to PCs), telephony (landline to mobile), photography (film to digital), stock markets (floor to online)Śnot because of "bad" management, but because they followed the dictates of "good" management.

They listened closely to their customers. They carefully studied market trends. They allocated capital to the innovations that promised the largest returns. And in the process, they missed disruptive innovations that opened up new customers and markets for lower-margin, blockbuster products.
Sounds very familiar.
