    In today’s constantly changing business environment, the question is not if any unexpected obstacles will try to derail your promising company, but when will they rear their ugly heads. Your biggest investor bails on you, having been lured away to the next new sure thing instead. A similar product is unveiled by a more established company. A key employee jumps ship to work for a competitor. When these obstacles--yes, plural!--arrive, will you be able to shift strategies, products, and services on a time, if necessary? Unfortunately, many entrepreneurs lock themselves into one strategy, one product, one distribution method, and one way of thinking about their business. In doing so, they limit their potential and lower their chances of capitalizing on economic, industry, or market changes. Think Agile wants to help the entrepreneur both assess their level of flexibility and learn to be open-minded and option-oriented in key areas such as:• Funding sources• Launch timetables• Planning• Repurposing everything from products to people to names• And much moreFeaturing real-life case studies and invaluable tools, Think Agile is the indispensable guide every entrepreneur must have in order to self-evaluate and develop the undeniably essential skill of agility--the secret to surviving whatever tomorrow brings!

    The Fuzzy and the Techie - Why...

    A finalist for the 2016 Financial Times/McKinsey Bracken Bower Prize 
    A leading venture capitalist offers surprising revelations on who is going to be driving innovation in the years to come 
    Scott Hartley first heard the terms fuzzy and techie while studying political science at Stanford University. If you majored in the humanities or social sciences, you were a fuzzy. If you majored in the computer sciences, you were a techie. This informal division has quietly found its way into a default assumption that has misled the business world for decades: that it's the techies who drive innovation. 
    But in this brilliantly contrarian book, Hartley reveals the counterintuitive reality of business today: it's actually the fuzzies - not the techies - who are playing the key roles in developing the most creative and successful new business ideas. They are often the ones who understand the life issues that need solving and offer the best approaches for doing so. It is they who are bringing context to code, and ethics to algorithms.They also bring the management and communication skills, the soft skills that are so vital to spurring growth. 
    Hartley looks inside some of today's most dynamic new companies, reveals breakthrough fuzzy-techie collaborations, and explores how such collaborations are at the center of innovation in business, education, and government, and why liberal arts are still relevant in our techie world.

Studied by generals from Napoleon to  Rommel it is still one of the most influential works on the subject and is  required reading in most military academies around the world.
