We wrote Strategic Management and Business Policy to introduce you to strategic management—afield of inquiry that focuses on the organization as a whole and its interactions with its environment. The corporate world is in the process of transformation driven by information technology (in particular the Internet) and globalization. Strategic management takes a panoramic view of this changing corporate terrain and attempts to show how large and small firms can be more effective and efficient not only in today's world, but in tomorrow's as well.
This text contains the latest theory and research currently available in strategic management. We sifted through the past 5 years' worth of articles from the following academic and business publications: Academy of Management Journal, Strategic Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Administrative Science Quarterly, Journal of Management, Long Range Planning, Organization Science, Academy of Management Executive, Organizational Dynamics, Journal of Business Strategy, SAM Advanced Management Journal, Journal of Business Strategies, Strategy and Leadership (previously Planning Review), Strategy and Business, Competitive Intelligence, Journal of Business Venturing, Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, Harvard Business Review, Business Week, and The Economist.
Both the concepts and the cases have been class-tested in strategy courses and revised based on feedback from students and instructors. The first 10 chapters are organized around a strategic management model that prefaces each chapter and provides a structure for both content and case analysis. We emphasize those concepts that have proven to be most useful in understanding strategic decision-making and in conducting case analysis. Our goal was to make the text as comprehensive as possible without getting bogged down in any 1 area. Endnote references are provided for those who wish to learn more about any particular topic. All cases in the combined text and the case text are about actual organizations. The firms range in size from large, established multinationals to small, entrepreneurial ventures, and cover a broad variety of issues. As an aid to case analysis, we propose the strategic audit as an analytical technique.Objectives
This book focuses on the following objectives, typically found in most strategic management and business policy courses:
This book achieves these objectives by presenting and explaining concepts and theories useful in understanding the strategic management process. It critically analyzes studies in the field of strategy to acquaint the student with the literature of this area and to help develop the student's research capabilities. It also suggests a model of strategic management. It recommends the strategic audit as 1 approach to the systematic analysis of complex organization-wide issues. Through a series of special issue and comprehensive cases (available in the combined text and the cases text), it provides the student with an opportunity to apply concepts, skills, and techniques to real-world corporate problems. The book focuses on the business corporation because of its crucial position in the economic system of the world and in the material development of any society.Time-Tested Features
