Product Overview

An enterprise is more than the traditional business organization. Value today is often created not just within one company but across a network of companies. This means leaders must be able to identify potential partners, initiate and maintain relationships, and reconfigure those relationships when necessary. Cross-Enterprise Leadership is a new model for success in today's world of business networks. Leaders who adopt this approach will be more comfortable dealing with complexity and uncertainty, and more adept at mapping and creating value through enterprise networks.

Small, domestic, entrepreneurial companies are, by their very nature, cross-enterprise focused. Entrepreneurs will tell you that they live in a world of ambiguity, where nothing is certain or permanent and they need to adjust on the fly. Equally, large multi-national companies like Wal-Mart, Nestle, or Coca-Cola are inherently complex; issues and relationships cut across functions, levels, geographies, and companies.

Cross-Enterprise Leadership goes beyond the traditional core competency management perspective to explain complex business issues from all angles. Leaders will learn how they can rely almost entirely on influence when they may be operating without power or authority, and how they can develop the capacity to make decisions and implement them in an enterprise network.
