Description: How do an elite few companies, such as Samsung, P&G, and, Porsche achieve enduring and sustained out-performance of their peers? The authors share key insights from their multi-year study of high performance businesses. They show how companies manage the three pre-requisites to become high performers relative to their peers.
Synopsis: Recently, some bestselling management books have focused on providing a recipe for greatness, while others have sought to unlock the secrets of long-term success. But a detailed analysis at the intersection of the two, one that explains how some companies manage to achieve repeated peaks of business performance, has been missing ? until now.Accenture's Paul Nunes and Tim Breene have found that what matters is not just climbing your current S-curve, which is what you do to reach the top of a single successful business. Instead, they emphasize the equal importance of the moves you must make on the way to your next business; that is, making the jump to your future S-curve.Jumping the S-Curve reveals crucial insights for making such transitions, including:? Why traditional strategic planning won't allow you to find the ? big-enough" market insights that are critical to superior performance? Why your top team must be refreshed before performance starts to wane? Why you need much more talent than you think, especially ? serious talent" that will find you worthy of their timeFilled with original practical advice, Jumping the S-Curve demystifies how companies can thrive with one successful business after another, through both good times and bad.
