The Velocity Advantage

Jack Bergstrand
Free sample

Are you drowning in useless meetings? Your projects crushed by the weight of too many stakeholders?

What if you could achieve better, faster and more meaningful outcomes at work and in your career?

The way we work now is based on industrial-age thinking - back when waste was measured by the scrap pile at the end of the assembly line. Today's waste is often invisible, but it's just as fatal for companies and careers.

Seventy percent of all projects fail. And big companies no longer beat small ones. Fast companies beat slow ones, and their velocity comes from getting the right people engaged at the right time - in the right way. By redefining teamwork for the 21st century, The Velocity Advantage will help you achieve better and faster results with less effort and aggravation.

The former CIO of Coca-Cola and founder of Brand Velocity and Consequent consulting, Jack Bergstrand's revolutionary ideas are based on 35 years of research and experience across a wide range of companies and industries.

Gain valuable insights about your personality type, and learn how you can work with others in a new way - with more impact, energy and personal engagement.

Success is not about speed or direction. It requires speed and direction. This book shows how to achieve both.

Break free of industrial-age thinking.

Make sense of cross-functional chaos.

Discover a better way to work - with The Velocity Advantage.

A revelatory exploration of the hottest trend in technology and the dramatic impact it will have on the economy, science, and society at large.

Which paint color is most likely to tell you that a used car is in good shape? How can officials identify the most dangerous New York City manholes before they explode? And how did Google searches predict the spread of the H1N1 flu outbreak?

The key to answering these questions, and many more, is big data. “Big data” refers to our burgeoning ability to crunch vast collections of information, analyze it instantly, and draw sometimes profoundly surprising conclusions from it. This emerging science can translate myriad phenomena—from the price of airline tickets to the text of millions of books—into searchable form, and uses our increasing computing power to unearth epiphanies that we never could have seen before. A revolution on par with the Internet or perhaps even the printing press, big data will change the way we think about business, health, politics, education, and innovation in the years to come. It also poses fresh threats, from the inevitable end of privacy as we know it to the prospect of being penalized for things we haven’t even done yet, based on big data’s ability to predict our future behavior.

In this brilliantly clear, often surprising work, two leading experts explain what big data is, how it will change our lives, and what we can do to protect ourselves from its hazards. Big Data is the first big book about the next big thing.
