Books which deal with e–business topics in isolation miss the point. The hub of the electronic world – the Internet – is primarily and enabling force. It cannot work miracles. The brightest sparks are still those with the best ideas, not the most venture capital or marketing spend. What these books demonstrate clearly is that the old ways of doing business are not redundant, and that application of sound, practical steps that combine both old and new models will go a long way towards ensuring continued business success.
Each title in the New Economy Excellence Series is clear–minded, accessible and aimed at bringing a critical business issue in the new economy into sharper focus. This series is the first of its kind to provide sound practical steps that busy executives can action immediately no matter where they are on the e–business ladder. As befits books concerned with a globalising world, these books take an international perspective. Read the front inside flap to see how you can benefit from New Economy Emotion.
