"There is no 'perfect' strategic decision. One always has to balance conflicting objectives, conflicting opinions, and conflicting priorities. The best strategic decision is only an approximation--and a risk."--Peter Drucker
All business involves approximation and risk. True success comes only when you minimize those risks by formulating a sound, workable strategy.

How does McDonald's continue, year in and year out, to fight off competitors and maintain its global dominance? What has Nike done to create and foster its strong Internet presence? Why can FedEx consistently recognize--and implement--the technologies necessary to remain top dog in its hard-fought, no-room-for-error market niche?
