Each year a cross section of the world's business and policy elite from over a dozen countries gather under the auspices of the Global Business Policy Council to discuss the changing business environment. Established in 1992, the Global Business Policy Council assists business leaders to monitor and capitalize on geopolitical, economic, regulatory and social change worldwide. As facilitator to these high level discussions, Paul A. Laudicina, Managing Director of the Global Business Policy Council, is in a unique position to analyze the major issues that are transforming the business world. World Out of Balance is designed to prepare corporate leaders for changes in the global business environment before they happen. Key future challenges are already beginning to take shape - from the new relationships between workers and their companies and the rapidly shifting locus of consumer power to the backlash against globalization and the challenges of corporate national identity. These trends promise to transform even the most fundamental assumptions on which global companies operate over the next decade. Drawing on the extensive multidisciplinary insights of A.T. Kearney's Global Business Policy Council, this book provides detailed snapshots of how such emerging forces may evolve in the coming years and how they are likely to impact global business strategies. With a focus on cutting-edge thought and practical scenarios, the book aids business leaders in determining how to orient their organizations to address these new realities - and to weather tomorrow's storms.
