Vale C.K. Prahalad (1941-2010)
What a loss to the fields of leadership and management, and to us all.
An excerpt from his foreword to “The Boundaryless Organization”
In the new business environment, managers must fundamentally rethink strategy and create radically new organizational capabilities. Both tasks require a capacity to forget as well as a capacity to learn; they require tools for honest assessment of where one is and a capacity to conceive where one ought to be . . . It is the appetite for this process of reexamining and reinventing that will separate the builders (leaders) from caretakers and the undertakers (managers and cautious administrators).
