Synopsis

This is a business guide modelled on the fundamental Darwinian model - Infinite Innovation. Geoffrey Moore is one of the most respected and bestselling names in business books. In his widely quoted "Crossing the Chasm", he identified and addressed the greatest challenge facing new ventures. Now he's back with a book for established businesses that need to learn how to adapt - or suffer the slow declines into marginalised performance that have characterised so many Fortune 500 icons in recent years. Deregulation, globalisation and e-commerce are exerting unprecedented pressures on company profits. In this new economic ecosystem, companies must dramatically differentiate from their direct competitors - or risk declining performance and eventual extinction. Illustrating his arguments with more than 100 examples and a full-length case study based on his unprecedented access to Cisco Systems, Moore shows businesses how to meet today's Darwinian challenges, whether they're producing commodity products or customised services.

For companies in danger of succumbing to competitive pressures, he shows how to overcome inertia by engaging the entire corporate community in an unceasing commitment to innovate and evolve. For any business competing in today's 'eat-or-be-eaten' economic jungle, this groundbreaking guide shows not only how to survive, but also thrive. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.

„Dealing with Darwin“ ist ein Buch über Innovation und den Umgang mit Innovation im Unternehmenskontext. Die Kernthese besagt, dass Innovation im (globalen) Wettbewerb unausweichlich ist, um auf Dauer erfolgreich am Markt bestehen zu könne. Die Herausforderung für das Management eines Unternehmens besteht nun darin, die „richtige Art“ an Innovation zu finden und diese konsequent – möglicherweise auch gegen Widerstände – umzusetzen.
Geoffrey Moore beschreibt anhand eines Produkt-Lebenszyklus welche Art von Innovation in den verschiedenen Phasen des Zyklus angebracht erscheinen. Dabei werden 14 unterschiedliche Arten von Innovation charakterisiert und beschrieben. Diese Innovationstypen werden jeweils für den Bereich Konsumerprodukte und „Integration komplexer Systeme (complex systems integration)“ ausgearbeitet und mit Beispielen veranschaulicht. Es werden weit mehr 100 Praxisbeispiele von nahmenhaften (Fortune 500) Firmen vorstellt. Ein Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf einer Fallstudie über Cisco’s Unternehmensstrategie, die unter dem Aspekte der Innovation seziert wird.
Wer Moore’s Konzept von Core/Context bereits kennt wird es am Anfang des Buches ein wenig leichter haben. Für alle andere wird dieses Denkmodell in der zweiten Hälfte des Buches im Detail erklärt und beschrieben. Dieses Modell ist danach die Grundlage für Vorschläge des Autors, wie sich Innovation im täglichen Geschäftsleben durch- und umsetzen läßt.
Moore greift verschiedene Konzepte aus seinen früheren Büchern „Living on the Fault Line“, „Inside the Tornado“ und „Chrossing the Chasm“ auf.

Format: Taschenbuch
Der Umschlag eines Buches ist immer ein Versprechen des Authors an den Leser. Der Titel 'Dealing with Darwin' zusammen mit einer Abbildung eines Tyrannosaurus Rex lenkt die Aufmerksamkeit unweigerlich in Richtung Evolutionstheorie. Diese besagt nun -knapp formuliert- dass sich durch Rekombination und Selektion langfristig das Beste, Robusteste und Fitteste durchsetzt. Innovationen kann man unter diesem Blickwinkel als Treiber für wirtschaftlichen und technischen Fortschritt verstehen. Der Autor reduziert das Konzept der Evolution auf ein Reifegradmodell. Beim Lesen bekommt man den Eindruck, Innovationen und damit die Wettbewerbsvorteile sind lediglich eine Frage der Einordnung in das vorgestellte Kategorisierungssystem und lässt sich auf ein einfaches Entscheidungsproblem reduzieren. Das ist naives Innovationsmanagement.
Der Erkenntnisgewinn des Buches ist recht mager. Die angegebenen Beispiele sind zum Teil veraltet (Ist SUN tatsächlich noch Innovationsführer? Oder gehört es schon zu Oracle?) Cisco gilt zweifellos als innovativ aber ob es Darwin liegt bleibt fraglich.
Das Buch ist zum Teil schwer zu lesen, obwohl die Aussagen zum Teil recht simpel sind. Die Kernaussage 'Extract resources from context to fund core' ist so eine unverständliche Formulierung.
Fazit: Das Versprechen des Umschlages nur teilweise erfüllt werden. Einfacher Inhalt kompliziert verpackt.

HASH(0x9b092c54) von 5 Sternen Crevice or Chasm? 3. Januar 2006
Von Robert Morris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Those who have read one or more of Moore's previous books (notably Inside the Tornado, Crossing the Chasm, and Living on the Fault Line) already know what a clear thinker and eloquent writer he is on the subject of high-tech markets, especially in terms of formulating appropriate strategies and tactics at a time when ever-accelerating change is the only constant within those dynamic markets. In Dealing with Darwin, he develops in much greater depth his response to this question: "How do great companies innovate at every phase of their evolution?" He is convinced (as am I) that there is a process of natural selection which determines why some companies prosper and most others do not.

Moore cites the concept of value disciplines which Michael Treacy and Fred Wiersema first introduced in their brilliant book, The Discipline of Market Leaders: Choose Your Customers, Narrow Your Focus, Dominate Your Market. He then identifies four clusters of innovation zones: Product Leadership, Customer Intimacy, Operational Excellence, and Category Renewal. The challenge for decision-makers in any organization (regardless of its size or nature) is to select innovation zone in which to establish and sustain "break away" separation from its competitive set. Moore suggests that this decision be made in terms of three factors:

1. Core competence: different organizations have different assets to exploit

2. Competitive analysis: different sets of competitors leave different openings to exploit

3. Category maturity: Different stages of the category-maturity life cycle reward different forms of innovation

Moore acknowledges an "odd pairing" of innovation leadership at the top with innovation "bubbling up from the bottom." Initiatives from both must be in proper alignment. Obviously, it is not easy to establish such an alignment and even more difficult to sustain it. Of course, Moore is well aware of that. "Managing innovation requires executives to foster a bottoms-up stream of innovation opportunities...Managing innovation also implies maintaining a portfolio of strategies because different categories will respond to different types of innovation. This creates a level of complexity that can create confusion in the broader organization, with teams being asked to pursue one form of innovation here and another there."

What to do? In Chapter Four, Moore offers an innovation-types model. It can help ensure consistent and effective execution across the portfolio, and help management "to orient the organization to the logic behind the different choices and the importance of keeping them distinct from one another." I presume to add two requirements of management. First, that it facilitate effective communication, cooperation, and collaboration between and among all teams. Also, that it ensure that separate initiatives are consistent with the primary innovation strategy.

Of special interest to me is what Moore has to say about managing inertia in Part Three (Chapters Nine, Ten, and Eleven). First, he analyzes how Cisco extracts resources from context; next, he examines how Cisco repurposes resources for core; finally, he offers observations and recommendations which can help others manage inertia in their enterprise. Here are two brief excerpts.

Cisco's integration of network-related functions "creates an enormous separation between Cisco's offerings and those of its direct competitors. For while those competitors can and do surpass Cisco in point-product performance, they cannot match the overall value proposition of providing an integrated network fabric. Whenever a competitor steals a march on the company, Cisco's engineers set out to catch up, and once their point products are close to parity, the integration-value proposition overshadows whatever feature distinction may remain." (Page 164).

Cisco knows that being the leader in a platform play has only one requirement: followers. "Specifically, the other major players in the ecosystem must voluntarily embrace your platform. Knowing how much power this confers on another company, why would these companies ever do this? The answer is three-fold:

1. They get enormous productivity gains from leveraging your services.

2. They get access to a much broader marketplace.

3. They do not perceive the power you gain coming at their expense.

"Cisco's plan is to deliver on all three points....[It] seeks to leverage its own location advantage by providing services that are noncore to its major partners." (Page 185)

Cisco offers an excellent illustration of what Moore's definition of "core": A word he uses to describe innovation that creates differentiation. "To succeed with core, you must take your value proposition to such an extreme that competitors either cannot or will not follow. That's what creates the separation you seek."

Of course, few other organizations have the resources available to them that Cisco does. Many (if not most) of them have a risk-reduction mentality that encourages everyone involved to shun bold actions that jeopardize existing assets and relationships. "It is based on staying close to norms, thereby leveraging the experience of the herd. As such, it is actually a positive evolutionary response to situations that do not reward differentiation." In a word, "context."

In my opinion, Dealing with Darwin has much wider relevance and greater value than Moore's earlier works because it addresses issues by no means limited to the dynamics of high technology. Hence the importance of Chapter Eleven. In it, Moore recommends what he characterizes as "essential steps" to setting an agenda:

1. Conduct a core/context analysis of your current business.

2. Conduct a resource-allocation analysis to complement your core/context analysis.

3. Set a more ambitious (i.e. more "aggressive") agenda.

4. Plan out your moves as a team.

5. Focus on time to market.

6. Get the gears moving.

7. Keep the gears moving.

Moore also provides with these seven steps practical suggestions as well as a few appropriate caveats. Darwin's influence remains evident in his concluding remarks. "That's what evolution is all about, a continual raising of the bar. It's how countries raise their standard of living. It's why new companies get formed every year. It's why each of us must learn new skills throughout our careers. We may get tired, but we are not likely to get bored. Mostly we just have to perform. Welcome to the race."

Dealing with Darwin is a brilliant achievement.

HASH(0x9b18f03c) von 5 Sternen A unique book, that sums up and advances needed ideas 12. Februar 2006
Von Mark P. McDonald - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have always enjoyed Geoffrey Moore's books which unfortunately trounced over the same old ground of the technology adoption cycle from different perspectives. This book starts out the same way, but unlike most business books gets better as it moves on.

Overall, parts two and three of this book should be required reading for anyone in Product Strategy, Product Marketing or General Management. Why, well these chapters provide a complete review of the major strategies and tactics involved in managing a business.

Section two talks about innovation strategies based on your company and the state of the market. The clear delineation of strategies for growth, mature, and declining markets provides a framework for plotting the structure and intent of your strategy.

In growing markets: disruptive, application, or product innovation.

In mature markets: Line extension, value engineering, enhancement, integration, marketing experiential, process or value migration innovation.

In declining markets: Organic renewal, acquisition renewal, or harvest and exit.

The clarity of Section II is a breath of fresh air as many strategy books either focus on only one of these types of innovation, or try to talk over your head with the idea that if you don't understand what they are saying, then you must not be strategic enough. This section is clear, directive, filled with examples and a great way to look at strategic direction and choice.

However, Section III of this book has the real gems and the culmination of Moore's ideas and thinking. Here Moore addresses the topic of how to reallocate and evolve the enterprise to achieve its strategy and innovation goals. This is not your typical discussion of change management and change readiness. While Moore refers to them, he jumps right to the hard management decisions required to release, reallocate and reduce resource investments (money, people, attention) required to grow top and bottom line. Moore's idea and description of how to 'recycle' resources gives a fresh approach to how everyone in the company can win in a time of change.

Section III is the best part of the book and the one where I made the most notes about what my company can do to be successful. While these ideas are not unique to Moore, you would have to read at least four or five separate books and integrate their ideas to create a similar explanation and reference found in Section III.

Most business books tail off rapidly as the chapters move on. In fact, the first section of this book was so much of a repeat of Moore's other books I almost put it away. This book however gets better as you move through it. If you have not read Moore's other books, then I would suggest reading the whole book. If you are familiar with his work than read the prologue, first chapter and then jump to section II and III.

HASH(0x9bf935e8) von 5 Sternen Great topic but difficult to read. 24. Oktober 2008
Von Eric D. Brown - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Ever see a book in the bookstore that catches your attention and you realize it was a best-seller sometime in the past? You realize you never picked it up to read it and decide that you should?

That's what happened when I ran across this book.

I heard about this book when it was released in 2005 and always meant to read it...but just never did. Whilst perusing the local Half-Price Books, I decided I'd pick it up and read it...because I'm a book nerd, there is a dinosaur on the cover and I saw what I thought were fractals in the book! :)

I got the book home and started reading...and I made it to page xii in the preface to the paperback edition before realizing I may have made a mistake buying this book. What happened?

I read this passage:

"The key message is simple. In order to achieve competitive advantage in a commoditizing market, one must innovate so dramatically as to create definitive seperation between your offers and those of the low-cost commoditizers. That means selecting a vector of innovation that can set you apart and investing intensely along that vector..."

Huh? The key message is simple but the author makes the message difficult to understand.

Why didn't Mr. Moore just say: To gain competitive advantage, you need to separate yourself from your competitor by choosing an innovation path and investing in that path.

After reading this passage, I was very very skeptical about the rest of the book. Especially after this passage immediately following the above one:

"Extract resource from context to fund core."

What does that mean?

There are some great ideas in this book but those ideas are often overshadowed by verbosity (as shown above) and/or using contextual language that makes little sense outside of the context of the book.

The book does do a good job of outlining the different types of innovation (e.g., disruptive, product,platform, etc). The author does a good job of describing the process of looking at the marketplace to determine how to attack innovation. The framework that Moore lays out is very useful and intriguing and is worth studying in further detail. Again, the author does know his stuff.

That said, the book is a difficult read. If you are serious about innovation and competitive advantage, you should read this book..but be prepared to re-read many pages/sections. I found myself stopping every few paragraphs and trying to comprehend what I just read.

Is there anyone out there that has read this book and thoroughly enjoyed it? Am I being to harsh on this book? Could it be that I'm getting cranky in my old age? :)

HASH(0x9b496210) von 5 Sternen The big picture 3. Juli 2006
Von Denis Pombriant - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a good big picture review of where the marketplace is today. After several decades of new product and new category introductions (especially in the high-tech area) we've reached a point where there aren't a lot of new new things. This is especially true in enterprise software where I make a living ([...] So the question begs to be asked, "What's next?" meaning if we aren't introducing new categories, how do we get customers interested in what we have to offer. Moore brilliantly answers the question with an array of innovation strategies which, while not as definitive as disruptive innovation, are nevertheless important. Our understanding of how and why product lines are extended, for example, is improved and with that Moore brings to close a circle that started with "Crossing the Chasm". Definitely worth reading if you are in business and have responsibility for charting what's next or if you are a customer and want to understand the next moves by your favorite vendor.

I have read some previous books of this author and I have liked them more. This seemed to be an addition to the same series of great text books. However, I only gave three stars because I did not find so much new, original, innovative ideas in this book than in his previous books. But this books is definitely worth reading.
