New York, NY (PRWEB) October 3, 2006
In a phone interview from London, U.S. business strategy expert, Peter Fingar, said that, "globalization is the greatest reorganization of the economy since the Industrial Revolution, affecting not just Americans, but the entire industrialized world." Fingar, who has penned numerous books on technology and business innovation, was in London to deliver a keynote address at the "Process 2006" conference, attended by business executives from across Europe.
Fingar's message was that companies that intend to remain competitive must now compete on their business processes that extend beyond corporate walls and onto partnerships and alliances spread across the globe. In his London keynote, Fingar relayed information contained in his newly released book, "Extreme Competition: Innovation and the Great 21st Century Business Reformation." The book paints an alarming picture for those in Western economies, of the transfer of wealth and power to the East.
While being neither pessimistic nor optimistic about the epic change in the global economy, Fingar sounds a penetrating wake-up call for companies, governments and individuals alike. He makes the point crystal clear that we are not on the brink of a great transition -- we've already crossed the threshold to a new economic world order. With precision, insight and clarity, he explains the five key drivers and sixteen new realities of extreme competition that are affecting companies, nations and individuals alike -- all across the third rock from the sun, as he describes it.
According to the conference organizer, Steve Towers, CEO of the Business Process Management Group, "It was a particular pleasure to have Peter Fingar’s keynote to make us all think outside the box. Many here in the U.K. consider Peter Fingar to be the new Peter Drucker. Though he speaks in a humble voice, his message simply cannot be ignored."
According to Fingar, globalization is a two-sided coin, and the sooner we fully understand it, the better we will be able to adjust at all levels, from government trade policies, to individual career choices. Fingar concludes that we are operating from a new paradigm where all is utterly changed.
