Biography

Yves Doz is Professor of Global Technology and Innovation at INSEAD. Hailed by The Economist as one of only a handful of true European management gurus, he is a leading authority on alliancing, globalisation and competitiveness.

Doz teaches and consults on multinational management, strategic partnerships, entrepreneurial innovation and renewal. He focuses on how corporations can tap into technical and market knowledge from locations dispersed around the world, and how to beat the odds of failure in strategic alliances.

Doz argues that strategically agile companies not only learn to make fast turns, but also position themselves to take advantage of permanent change and disruption. In his book Fast Strategy, he sets out how organisations must learn to thrive on continuous waves of change, instead of making painful adjustments between periods of stability and moments of upheaval.

In the new competitive game, nothing can be taken for granted and no competitive edge will necessarily last long. Innovation and the constant development of new capabilities are the only sources of advantage.
