Advance Praise for The Death of Competition "The Death of Competition certainly captures the essence of the change [that] we're experiencing in the new internet ecosystem. Very prescient." -James L. Barksdale, president and CEO, Netscape
"Moore catches the fundamental shift in business thinking-and behavior-today: the economy is not a mechanism, businesses are not machines. They are coevolving, unpredictable organisms within a constantly shifting business eco-system that no one controls.... Managers of companies both great and small must figure out how to coevolve in this changing environment-to compete with what the competition is becoming, not with what it is now." -Esther Dyson, president, Dyson-EDventure Holdings, Inc.
"Unique, trustworthy counsel for leaders facing the new economy of empowered customers, global markets, and revolutionary technologies." -Robert E. Allen, CEO, AT&T.
"The ecosystems approach and the biological analyses are very useful and very rich. [Moore's] personal style gives me a sense of sharing and presence. This is not a textbook. It is an experience." -Bo Ekman, chairman and CEO, SIFO Management Group AB
"The business world moving toward the twenty-first century needs a new language to construct its new reality.... [Moore's] bold use of a biological metaphor ... will help many businesspeople to start acting from a much deeper understanding of their own New World." -Arie P. DeGeus. (retired) head of Strategic Planning & Scenario Development, Royal Dutch Shell
"Moore has reframed the leading-edge concepts of strategy and created an original, dynamic approach to thinking about enterprise, value creation, and the future. His images are powerful in both classroom and boardroom, inspiring students and policy makers alike to see new patterns and possibilities." -John Rosenblum. Tayloe Murphy Professor of Business Administration Darden Graduate School of Business University of Virginia

Total system leadership, according to business strategy consultant James F. Moore, has replaced mere product superiority and even complete industry dominance as today's corporate brass ring. In The Death of Competition: Leadership & Strategy In the Age of Business Ecosystems, he uses "biological ecology" as a metaphor for the new type of cooperative/competitive relationships that he believes lead to that brass ring -- while guiding readers toward the unique interlocking networks that he says are necessary to attain it.From the Publisher:
NOW IN PAPERBACK ... A New Vision of Competitive Systems
In the new paperback edition of his groundbreaking book, James F. Moore, one of the world's foremost experts on leadership and strategy, dispenses with simplistic models of corporate competition to argue that the complex, interdependent nature of today's business relationships is best understood as a form of ecosystem. He examines the profound strategic and managerial implications of this dynamic vision in The Death of Competition: Leadership and Strategy in the Age of Business Ecosystems (HarperBusiness; May 21, 1997).
Moore offers a sweeping new understanding of how businesses interact, cooperate, and compete; his ecosystem analogy more closely reflects the actual experiences of today's companies. He names four distinct stages in the growth of a business ecosystem-"The Terrain of Opportunities," "The Revolution Spreads," "The Red Queen Effect," and "Renewal or Death"-and shows how businesses can meet the changing demands and goals of each. He not only offers a powerful metaphor for understanding the new business environment, he also shows how to apply this understanding to flourish and succeed in a climate of organized chaos.
Moore vividly illustrates his thesis not only with examples from the natural world, but also with case studies of actual companies. Drawing on a wide range of contemporary examples-from the complex alliances among IBM, Intel, and Microsoft to the territorial tactics employed by Wal-Mart against Kmart, to the coevolution of Ford and Chrysler-Moore shows how new strategies and visionary leadership are required in these new business ecosystems.
Moore's insightful and iconoclastic analysis of the contemporary business climate suggests a new strategic model for the interaction of companies. He conclusively demonstrates that our traditional understanding of competition is no longer adequate to the realities of the business environment, and that an ecosystem understanding of business interactions has profound implications for corporate strategy. The Death of Competition will change the way people think about competition and cooperation.
