Three simultaneous revolutions-new technologies, globalization, and the end of communism-are destroying the fixed reference points for business. As they do, would-be business leaders have to think of themselves as economic explorers. Leaders are people who know they’re at point B and need to go to point A. Their problem is to find a route from B to A and persuade the troops to follow. Explorers are people who don’t know where they are, don’t know where they want to go, don’t know how they’ll get there, but do know they want to get rich. Explorers are essentially strategic thinkers without a road map.
