The companion book to COURSERA's popular massive open online course "Foundations of Business Strategy" and the recently launched five-course specialization, "Business Strategy."

The Strategist's Toolkit is a concise collection of the most commonly used tools in strategic analysis. Jared Harris and Michael Lenox have carefully selected 13 analytical techniques that every student and executive needs to master. Harris and Lenox begin with a brief overview of the process for integrative strategic analysis, followed by an easy-to-follow framework for understanding and using each of the 13 tools. The concluding chapter ties everything together with a four-step process for conducting an integrative strategic analysis.

Review:

"As managers have realized the importance of strategic analyses, we have seen a proliferation of tools and frameworks. Although each has its insight, there is little appreciation for the motivation, uses, and limitations of these tools and frameworks. By providing this appreciation, the Strategist's Toolkit better aids students and managers at reaching informed strategic choices rather than blindly following a given tool." --Myles Shaver, Professor and Pond Family Chair, Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota

"By illuminating the strengths and limitations of different strategy frameworks, the Strategist's Toolkit provides a roadmap for students seeking to understand which tools are appropriate for which tasks, and for managers seeking to translate textbook theory into real-world practice." --Bennet Zelner, Associate Professor, Smith School of Business, University of Maryland
