Drawing on corporate management leadership theory, this volume outlines a theoretical framework for holistic leadership at all levels and applies it to case studies of Apple, Cisco Systems, Dyson, SoftBank, and Sony. It discusses the importance of strategic knowledge creation where new business innovation across different technologies and industries forms dynamic business ecosystems through co-creation and co-evolution and the role of the formation of business communities and holistic leadership, in which practitioners differentiate and balance their application of centralized, distributed, and dialectical leadership according to circumstances and across the formal and information organization and the psychological boundary. Case studies present the approaches of these companies to new strategic knowledge creation through the formation of business communities and holistic leadership and their use of strategic innovation, strategic collaboration, new product development, corporate innovation, and corporate ventures.
