The Performance Economy
2006, Walter R. Stahel
The industrial economy is turning into a functional service economy, yet too many businesses and policymakers are still using outdated business models focused around designing and manufacturing goods for sale. This book outlines the strategies and models needed for tomorrow’s challenges: how to use technology and knowledge to improve performance, create jobs and increase income. It also shows what skills will be required to produce and sell performance, manage performance over time and how manual and skilled jobs can contribute to reduce the consumption of non-renewable resources.
