Kaihan Krippendorff '99 - Bio

A former McKinsey consultant, Kaihan has emerged as a sought after speaker and consultant, helping Microsoft, L'Oreal, Symantec, J&J, and numerous fast-growing mid-market companies develop disruptive growth strategies. He writes one of the most popular blogs on Fastcompany.com, and has been featured in global media outlets including Harvard Business Review, Bloomberg Businessweek, and National Public Radio.

"Outthink the Competition" profiles the next generation business strategists: the "Outthinkers" are entrepreneurs and corporate leaders with a new playbook. They see opportunities others ignore, challenge dogma others accept as truth, rally resources others cannot influence, and unleash new strategies that disrupt their markets. "Outthink the Competition" proves that business competition is undergoing a fundamental paradigm shift and that during such revolutions, outthinkers beat traditionalists.

The book presents stories of breakthrough companies like Apple, Google, Vistaprint, and Rosetta Stone whose stunning performances defy traditional explanation and will inspire readers to outthink the competition.  To read more about Kaihan, please visit his website: http://www.kaihan.net/.
