The Great Remobilization: Strategies and Designs for a Smarter Global Future
Olaf Groth, Mark Esposito, and Terence Tse
MIT Press, 240 pp., $32.95

The authors detail what they call "tectonic shifts" in the global economy that will force leaders to change strategies. Known as the five Cs, those shifts are: COVID-19 and pandemic management; the cognitive economy; cybersecurity; climate change; and China. The book uses 100 interviews with executives, entrepreneurs, and other leading experts (in tandem with the five Cs) to show readers how to create a new, inclusive vision of the future that will generate human and economic growth. Over-pressurized global systems must change for leaders, workers, and organizations to grow and thrive.
