Praise for Rebuilding the Corporate Genome

"Whether you talk about capability-driven organizations, modular approaches, or networked economies, the implications of very low costs for transactions, information exchanges, and communications are clear: Business boundaries are dissolving and re-forming. Aurik, Jonk, and Willen show how innovators are creatively exploiting this trend to their decided advantage."
- Gerard Hoetmer, Senior Vice President, Unilever Bestfoods

"If you set your strategy at lower levels of the business, you can more effectively compete and grow-and fend off unexpected rivals. Rebuilding the Corporate Genome shows that once you look through capability lenses, new horizons and new possibilities suddenly come into focus."
- Jan Oosterveld, Member, Group Management Committee, Royal Philips Electronics

"This book is a compelling and prescient look at the future of the modern corporation. While the 'corporate genome project' may be a work in progress, the authors take important steps towards the goal of understanding how corporations really work, and how capability-based corporations will emerge as the organizations of tomorrow. Read this book carefully, because this is as close as you will get to a key for unlocking innovation and value in your industry."
- Mohanbir Sawhney, McCormick Tribune Professor of Technology and Director, Center for Research in Technology & Innovation, Northwestern University, Kellogg School of Management

"Rebuilding the Corporate Genome reveals the future before it arrives. The authors masterfully extrapolate from a set of current trends to paint a picture of how businesses and strategies will evolve. The book is a must-read for anyone charged with charting the direction of a business in these turbulent times."
- Toby E. Stuart, Fred G. Steingraber-A.T. Kearney Professor of Organizations and Strategy, University of Chicago, Graduate School of Business
