– How did Xerox, a dominant world leader in light-lens copying, change its strategic focus in time to secure a foothold in the emerging digital technologies arena?

Continuous technological change…Short product life cycles…Fast-moving, innovative start-up competitors…
High-technology companies face a number of unique challenges not encountered by companies in other industries. And yet some–Microsoft, IBM, Apple, and Intel, to name just a few–consistently overcome the same obstacles faced by others, and continue to strengthen their competitive positions year after year. How do they do it? Product Strategy for High Technology Companies defines how high-tech companies have used product strategy and product platform strategy to achieve competitiveness, profitability, and continued expansion in the Internet age. Product strategists in high-tech companies will get the latest information on developing successful product policies–including technological change, product differentiation, timing and contingency planning, as well as marketing and financial considerations.
And far from offering a one-sided viewpoint of the marketplace, author Michael McGrath draws on his nearly quarter-century of experience to relate how product strategy works in the real world. McGrath discusses the strategies that allowed Amazon to create and launch numerous products in record time–and their plans for continuing this cycle of innovation and growth. He examines how companies such as Motorola were able to successfully leverage existing product lines, while others such as Wang quickly failed and disappeared.
Product Strategy for High Technology Companies is nothing less than a template for growth in the brutally competitive arena of high technology. Candid, comprehensive, and generous in its use of real-life examples to illustrate strategic realities, it shows today's emerging technology challengers how to build a solid strategic foundation, leverage the strengths of that foundation, then build from it to assume and maintain a position of leadership–today and well in
