Move Faster than Your Competition

In their book It's Not the Big That Eat the Small... It's the Fast That Eat the Slow,1 Jason Jennings and Laurence Haughton argue that only the swiftest of corporations will thrive in the 21st century. They then outline a program, based on best practices developed by contemporary speedsters like Charles Schwab and AOL that readers can work into their own businesses by similarly focusing on "commerce, resource deployment, and people."

"This book will show you how to think and move faster than your competition," they write, adding that "being faster doesn't mean being out of breath. It means being smarter."
