* A long-term focus is the key to success
* We do not see the value of outsourcing
* Just because we are big, it doesn't mean we cannot move quickly
then you and your company may be in very serious trouble. Read Robert Baldock's survival guide for giants, before it's too late.

From the Inside Flap:

In his latest work, Robert-Baldock continues in his visionary vein to tackle the problems, challenges and opportunities that the year 2000 onwards will bring for the old-style 'giants' of the last century. Robert Baldock's focus is on the problems facing big business, especially if they stand still instead of moving with, and even ahead of, the times. The greatest threats to the so-called 'giants' can come from the most unexpected quarters. Suddenly a small, independent company from the other side of the world can, without warning, take large chunks of your market share. They can do this because they are quicker of thought, more flexible in attitude and more closely attuned to the real needs of their customers than you are. Indeed, the very definition of what it means to be big is rapidly changing. So what, if anything, can you do about it? Robert Baldock calmly looks at the ways in which you can change the nature of your business so that you can begin the 21st century on at least an equal footing with your hungry, determined competitors. This includes looking at the nature of what you offer to your customers, the relationship you have with your customers, and the level to which you should continue trying to do everything internally against the option of outsourcing. The author gives us the mental model of a three-dimensional cube to visualise when thinking about the kinds of things we should be doing. The book can be read from either perspective, whether you are 'large' or 'small'. The 21st century will be characterised by more questions than there are answers, but through gripping narrative, superb examples and visionary insight, this book will set your synapses sparking about the way to survive and flourish in the 21st century.
