What happens when companies leverage emerging technologies to better understand their customers, help their employees collaborate more effectively, crowdsource, or otherwise improve their core business functions?

They become companies with a competitive edge—and part of what author Phil Simon calls The New Small.

In The New Small, Simon posits that five emerging tech trends are making it possible for smaller companies to compete—and beat—larger, more-established corporations. But don’t be fooled into thinking this book is about technology. It’s about business, and the workplace trends that smart companies are adopting to be competitive in today’s global environment.
