Editorial Reviews


"CLEVER is more than an acronym or a framework. It sets the stage for a thinking paradigm to guide the reader towards the new tenets emerging from the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and inspire them with reflection and action on what needs to be done to thrive in this complex era. Written with wonderful fluidity, Alessandro's work is a new benchmark in the understanding of where society is heading and how it will evolve."
--Mark Esposito, PhD, Professor of Strategy, Hult International Business School and Harvard University, and co-author of the bestsellers, The AI Republic: Building the Nexus Between Humans and Intelligent Automation & DRIVE: Understanding How the Future Unfolds

"New technologies like AI, blockchain, and augmented reality are changing the rules of strategy and challenging established business models. From finance to healthcare, from oil and gas to manufacturing, from logistics to retail...no industry will be spared. Alessandro asks all the right questions to help business leaders navigate change and prepare for a very uncertain, yet very exciting future."
--Andrew White, PhD, Associate Dean for Executive Education and Corporate Relations, Saïd Business School, University of Oxford

"Rich in valuable examples and in thoughtful concepts, CLEVER is a book that will sit for a very long time on my desktop, as it should on yours."
--Hamoud Almahmoud, Editor in Chief, Harvard Business Review Arabia

"Alessandro's broad knowledge of business in a global world comes together as a thought-provoking framework to understand the future, which will be valuable to business leaders across industries."
--Andrea Galeotti, PhD, Professor of Economics, London Business School

"CLEVER provides a logical and sound strategic framework to help people and organizations think strategically to decode, shape, and drive the challenges, opportunities, and complexity of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. What is remarkable about this book is the natural capacity of the author to produce a credible and pleasant narrative supported by academic rigour, captivating storytelling, and business acumen. The "E" of CLEVER--Ethical Championship--is particularly compelling; the book offers dozens of "hidden gems" unknown to most. A truly remarkable book we cannot afford to miss."
--Paolo Gallo, former Chief Human Resource Officer, World Economic Forum, and author of the bestseller, The Compass and the Radar

"Everyone talks about the Fourth Industrial Revolution and its transformational impact on every industry. CLEVER is your chance to understand its deep drivers and how to successfully respond to them. To that end, Alessandro Lanteri's recommendations are not only experience-driven and global, but--importantly--put ethics at the centre of value creation for the next frontier of our digital growth."
--Olaf Groth, Chief Executive Officer, Cambrian.ai Berkley CA, and co-author of the bestseller, Solomon's Code

"The immense speed of disruptive change creates a huge challenge for business leaders to shape innovative organizations with agile teams and fast decision making. CLEVER provides a thoughtful framework for understanding the forces for change and helps create winning strategies for a successful future."
--Henning Schlutt, President, Finance and IT, Alghanim Industries, Kuwait

"As international business becomes increasingly uncertain and the old rules of business become obsolete, business leaders need to explore new directions to stay successful. CLEVER provides a solid framework to understand the deep driver of change."
--Federico Donato, President of the Board of Governors, European Chamber of Commerce in Singapore, and council member, Singapore Business Federation

"The Fourth Industrial Revolution's unprecedented innovation speed is forcing companies to reconsider the frameworks that are tried and tested in many strategy books. CLEVER gives a fresh view to structure your thinking, and ought to be read."
--Xavier Rousseau, Head of Corporate Strategy, Snam SpA
