Two years in the cauldron of capitalism-"horrifying and very funny" (The Wall Street Journal) In this candid and entertaining insider's look at the most influential school in global business, Philip Delves Broughton draws on his crack reporting skills to describe his madcap years at Harvard Business School. Ahead of the Curve recounts the most edifying and surprising lessons learned in the quest for an MBA, from the ingenious chicanery of leveraging and the unlikely pleasures of accounting, to the antics of the "booze luge" and other, less savory trappings of student culture. Published during the one hundredth anniversary of Harvard Business School, this is the unflinching truth about life in the trenches of an iconic American institution.

Economic and stock market cycles affect companies in every industry. Unfortunately, a confusing array of anecdotal and conflicting indicators often renders it impossible for managers and investors to see where the economy is heading in time to take corrective action. Now, a 35-year Wall Street veteran unveils a new forecasting method to help managers and investors understand and predict the economic cycles that control their businesses and financial fates. In Ahead of the Curve, Joseph H. Ellis argues that the problem with current forecasting models lies not in the data, but rather in the lack of a clear framework for putting the data in context and reading it correctly. The book explains critical economic indicators in nontechnical language, identifies and documents the recurring cause-and-effect relationships that consistently predict turning points in the economy, and provides the tools managers and investors need to position themselves ahead of cyclical upturns and downturns. Economic events are not as random and unpredictable as they seem. This book helps readers recognize and react to signs of change that their rivals don't see—and win a sizeable competitive advantage. Joseph H. Ellis was a partner at Goldman Sachs and was ranked for 18 consecutive years by Institutional Investor magazine as Wall Street's No.1 retail industry analyst.

American Christians are obsessed with postmodernism. Books on the topic proliferate as Christians struggle to find their place and make a stand within the postmodern movement. There is a problem however. Postmodernist philosophy is on its way out. A new worldview is already taking root. Philosophers and pundits call the emerging worldview the Integral worldview. In this timely book, Fusco explores the new Integral worldview and what the church must do to stay Ahead of the Curve and be effective in the coming decades. 'Daniel Fusco writes a first-person report of what the future will be like for the American church as it engages an ever-changing cultural milieu. The insights in this book will help you prepare for future ministry in cultural settings more and more removed from any Christian context.' Dr. Jeff Iorg President, Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary 'Daniel Fusco is an intellectual with both theological and philosophical underpinnings that enable him to address the future wisely while being courteous towards the past. Furthermore, he is a practitioner who lives genuinely among the people of one of America's most post-postmodern contexts. Daniel personally embodies the integrity and the integration he writes about, and for which this nascent world longs.'

Why do most growth companies stop growing? And what can their leaders do to overcome the barriers to growth? The Curve Ahead tackles these questions, filling a void in the literature on innovation and growth strategy that has focused on either start-ups or large public companies. Growth companies are different. Their challenge is to transition from entrepreneurial focus to a repeatable process for innovation and sustained growth - and the stakes are high. The Curve Ahead utilizes the power of storytelling to teach growth company leaders how to sustain long-term growth. Using the example of a "gazelle," a high-growth company that is increasing revenue by at least 20% annually for four years or more, this book explores the struggles faced during business growth - something that plagues many businesses. These mid-size companies, typically with annual revenues of $10 million to $100 million, are the engines of economic growth and wealth creation. Tragically, most fall behind the curve before they reach their potential and are sold by investors too ready to throw in the towel. This book doesn't just lay out a fresh approach to innovation and growth strategy. It also helps professionals and business leaders avoid common pitfalls by illustrating the various ways in which growth companies get stuck and flame out. Author Dave Power then tells leaders how to get un-stuck. In addition to a myriad of real-world stories and case studies, each chapter of The Curve Ahead begins with the story of a fictional company called NaviMark. Navimark is emblematic of many growth companies—it faces the same business problems, personal challenges and strategic dilemmas encountered by Power in his 25 years managing, investing in and advising growth companies. Following Navimark throughout the book allows Power to provide a highly complex model of typical struggles and scenarios faced by growth companies and deliver that story to his readers in an extremely edifying, play-by-play manner. The strategy allows readers to follow along—observing, in real time, the way that Navimark evolves, and responds (correctly or incorrectly) to external obstacles and demands. This practical and fast-paced book uses realistic characters, dialogue, and business settings to: • Help readers anticipate the predictable challenges of business model maturity. • Demonstrate proven tools and approaches for overcoming the barriers to growth. • Translate abstract concepts about innovation into actionable programs that can become a part of the rhythm of the business. This book will help thousands of midsized companies overcome the growth hump by providing the tools necessary to not only succeed but thrive in the future. The Curve Ahead provides a roadmap for leaders who want to sustain growth over the long term. This roadmap is based on five premises: 1. Every business model matures, following the familiar S-Curve. 2. You can and must stretch the S-Curve, but that won't work forever. 3. To sustain growth you need to find the next S-Curve 4. Finding your next S-Curve, with some predictability, requires an innovation process, something every company should have in place. 5. Driving innovation while keeping the core business healthy is the responsibility of leaders.
