  • Backed up by copious examples from industry:  more than 300 examples in the text, and a unique chapter case study on how Japanese auto firms conquered the US market using a combination of various moves covered in the book.
  • Almost twenty years after the appearance of Al Ries's groundbreaking Marketing Warfare, the time is right to bring the practitioners up to date with the thinking and show them how to use it. 
  • A Complete manual.  The book is built around the 14 strategic moves.  It shows you what move to use, how to use it, and when. Like a book of chess moves for business.

From the Back Cover:

"This book will be a winner as Vasconcellos offers the most comprehensive treatment and assessment of attack and defense business strategies.  It is guaranteed to stimulate your strategic and tactical imagination."

Philip Kotler

"This book is great.  There's no better analogy for marketing than warfare...a superb job in outlining the many strategic choices involved in fighting an effective marketing war."

Al Ries (author of Positioning and Marketing Warfare)

 

In business as in war, you can be small but win.  You can be large and lose.  Nothing is written except the rules of success and failure. 

Following these rules is the key to many a victory.  Knowing how to interpret the business landscape and move strategically.  Whether to attack or defend.  When to enter the field and when to withdraw.  How to isolate, outflank or encircle your opponents. Explaining these rules and how to use them is the purpose of one book, Strategy Moves

Strategy Moves equips you with the complete set of strategic options at you disposal. Fourteen essential moves; eight defense and six attack, to help you start beating your opponents and making real progress towards victory in the market.  From successful defense at the battle of Rorke¿s Drift to the successful Japanese assault on global car markets, the lessons of conflict and competition are drawn together to help you to pick the right strategic battles, make the right strategic moves and coordinate them decisively in the market. 

With Strategy Moves, you will never be short of a winning business strategy.
