Most companies ignore one of their best opportunities for honing competitive advantage: the opportunity to proactively manage business cycles and economic turbulence. Despite the profound impact that the business cycle has on the fortunes and fate of so many businesses large and small, and the employees and investors that depend on them, you will not find a single book that offers a comprehensive guide to strategically and tactically managing the business cycle.The Well-Timed Strategy shows you how to manage not just the business cycle and industry cycles but also today's unprecedented level of macroeconomic turbulence. Peter Navarro shows how to align every facet of business strategy, tactics, and operations to reflect changing business conditions, so you can ride with the business cycle, not get run over. Drawing on hundreds of examples from IBM to Disney, Navarro distills clear, simple management principles for managing economic upswings and downswings. Navarro addresses everything from inventory, production, and supply chain management to marketing, pricing, and long-term capital investment. Clear, concise, and exceptionally readable, The Well-Timed Strategy makes complex macroeconomic forecasting easy to understand and even easier to act upon.
