As organizations try to adapt to a new environment they risk relying on improvements that only scratch the surface of developing a radically different value proposition.

Based on rigorous research of companies that have successfully and radically re-designed their business modelRadical Business Model Transformation shows why they made the leap, what they had to do to achieve it and how it has transformed the potential for their organizations. Case studies of organizations that have crossed the line to a more transformative business include Daimler, SAP, Xerox, Atlas Copco, Infosys and Netflix.

Radical Business Model Transformation provides a roadmap that will enable organizations to benchmark how far they have crossed the line to making a radical transformation, as well as a toolkit for diagnosing the type of transformation made.
