180 pages of talking about evolving without actually saying anything. I guess in its own right, that's pretty impressive. Reminds me of the organizational behavior classes back in college. Repeating the same thing in different terms over and over and over again, without any real benefit, as these are things that people already know. Offers no additional insight into how one might ensure that they are "constantly evolving." No framework, just fluff.

While the target audience of "The Caterpillar's Edge" may be CEOs and entrepreneurs, Sis Mohasseb's ideas about how to evolve and succeed in the new economy are truly revolutionary. His ideas are applicable to anyone thinking about their own success in today's world. His blueprint for achievement is applicable to personal goals as well as professional ones. Read Sid's book so you "don't leave change to chance."

It is a business was book, but it really applies to your day in, day out life too. Sharp, smart, and entertaining. LOVE the cover.

Changing from static/sequential (collect data, analyze it, develop a strategy, execute) to dynamic/constantly evolving is much easier said than done. Above all else, it requires a culture change. But whatever it takes, it is worth it!

If you're not a CEO, it's difficult to imagine carrying out the principals laid out in this book for your organization. So instead I'm applying the dynamic strategy to my own life. For example, I like to track my habits in an app called Way of Life. I used to want

A Call To Arms Against Stagnation

Although this book speaks to the CEOs and the managers of the corporate world, the message is by no means limited to those individuals. In fact, Sid Mohasseb has managed to reach out to the entire socio-economic spectrum in a small but potent book. I am not a CEO nor do I hold a managerial position and yet I felt engaged and challenged the entire time I read it.

By its language and content, it is clear that this book was not written with the intention of

This is an essential read if you want to lead. It is insightful, thoughtful and full of real life examples that help the reader understand not only the theory but also visualize how the theory will apply to real life situations. While perfectly timed for todays really volatile (or should I politely say dynamic) environment, it pulls examples from the past that reinforce the point that the wisdom of the ages is also being encapsulated in the narrative -- so while the need to evolve is even more ...more

The Caterpillar's Edge by Sid Mohasseb addresses many of the ineffective approaches to strategic planning by citing numerous planning shortcomings with specific companies. It will encourage managers to shift their focus from planning to rapid execution and accept that it is beneficial to allow for frequent and continuous changes of direction of an organization is going through a redirection process. It provides an excellent tutorial for CEO's in how to manage a change process.

The Caterpillar's Edge by Sid Mohassab gives great insight to any business leader. The book stresses the importance of not leaving change to chance. Don't get set in your ways but be ready to evolve. Sid points out companies that learned to evolve and those that did not and what the results were.
