    Would you buy a Jaguar if you knew it was 3D-printed? What other technological revolutions are underway that might radically shift power in corporations and around the world?

  • Additive Manufacturing

    With 3-D printing now moving into mass production, we’re entering an era of business transformation, the biggest leap in manufacturing innovation since the assembly line. 3-D printing will restructure industry and give rise to a new kind of giant company, the Pan-industrial—a highly diversified firm that achieves operational synergies

Richard D’Aveni is The Bakala Professor of Strategy at the Tuck Business School at Dartmouth College. He is the author of a number of influential books and articles, and his work is credited with creating new tools, frameworks, and maps that help companies and governments define their playing fields and determine their positioning. His books include Hypercompetition (Free Press, 1994), which coined the phrase and became a global bestseller; Beating the Commodity Trap (HBR Press, 2009); and Strategic Capitalism (McGraw-Hill, 2012). His Harvard Business Review column, “3-D Printing Will Change the World,” is among the most popular columns ever published in the history of the magazine.

D’Aveni’s latest book, The Pan-Industrial Revolution: How New Manufacturing Titans Will Transform the World, (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2018) looks at what will happen to global industry as 3-D printing quickly becomes a worldwide phenomenon–and how this will influence our economic and geopolitical landscape.

According to Tom Peters, bestselling author of In Search of Excellence and member, Thinkers50 Hall of Fame:

“Richard D’Aveni’s The Pan-Industrial Revolution is much more than a ‘must read.’ It is a ‘page turner,’ a ‘thriller.’ Herein is a compelling saga of a spanking new industrial revolution barreling toward us at lightning speed. Even if D’Aveni is only half right, the impact will be staggering.”
