What Matters Now: How to Win in a World of Relentless Change, Ferocious Competition, and Unstoppable Innovation by Gary Hamel

Set in the modern day, this is a rfereshing look at business theory : instead of the usual platitudes and "been there, told you so" that dictates huge chunks of business writing, this takes the idea, and explodes it - we live in an ever changing world, where the established dictats can be overturned in the blink of an eye, where leadership is earnt not granted with mere experience, and therefore, what matters now is about living in the moment with an eye on the future and learning from the past, using case studies and examples recognisable to anyone who has ever spent any time in the business world, with a call to arms for a radical overhaul of management taht concludes with some brief summations of the lessons learnt over the past 300 or so pages. Whether any of these work in established business culture or not is yet to be decided, but certainly this is a light towards the future : if all business had more courage, maybe all of us would work in better worlds.
