Unleashed - How to Thrive as an Independent Professional

Sep 18, 2017

Our guest today is Umbrex member Amanda Setili, and we discuss her new book that is being published today: Fearless Growth: The New Rules to Stay Competitive, Foster Innovation, and Dominate Your Markets

Amanda has been a guest on the show before, on episode 8, when we spoke about the Strategic Agility Think Tank which she established, and her first book, The Agility Advantage.

In today’s discussion we dive deep into the content of her new book.

In the first half of the show we discuss five strategic dilemmas that companies face.

These dilemmas include tough choices such as:

To what extent should we develop a carefully thought out plan vs plunging in and trying something new?


When new capabilities are needed, should we build them internally, acquire, or partner?

Amanda’s book suggests that these five dilemmas require seven new rules, and we touch on each one of those in the second half of the show.

If you work on strategy projects, this book is full of fresh thinking and well worth reading.
