9781412947879: A Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap Book About Studying Strategy (Very Short, Fairly Interesting & Cheap Books)

A Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap Book about Studying Strategy is a welcoming, lively, and thought provoking account of strategy. It helps students get to grips with strategy′s key issues and broad debates and introduce them to the latest ideas that won′t yet have been covered in the classroom. Organized into three sections, concepts are made really accessible as the authors first recap the history of strategy as an academic discipline, then evaluate major schools of strategic thought, and conclude by critiquing the latest developments in strategic research.

Review:

′I love this book...it is novel, punchy and extremely well written. It takes the pomposity out of strategic management, showing that strategy is everywhere and can really help with the complicated jargon. A great read, buy it!′ -
Cary L. Cooper, Professor of Organizational Psychology and Health
Lancaster University Management School

′If strategy is the queen of business, then this book offers us the perfect introduction to her court! It is accessable, lively, and informative. The book repays the reader with wonderful account of how strategy works. It also lets the reader in on some of the darker secrets of strategy′ -
André Spicer, Associate Professor of Organisation Studies
Warwick Business School
