Navigating OUT of the Badlands

“The Badlands” is Mary’s metaphor for the challenging transition from the end of the Industrial Era to the full promise of the Information Age.

The rewards are great for those who are not faint of heart.

  • Mastery of the art of scan, scout, and steer.
“Navigating the Badlands offers a concise coherent interpretation of globalization and its impacts on companies along with strategies to do something about it.”
