Strategy, an ancient pursuit, has evolved through the centuries and in today’s business environment applies to all organizations, across all sectors and geographies.
The Strategist’s Handbook is a collection of the best materials, insights, tools, and templates that comprise the core Strategy course taught in the undergraduate, MBA, Executive MBA, and Post-graduate Diploma programs at the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford. Each of the best practices, pitfalls to avoid, tools and templates presented in this book has been field-tested and refined for over three decades while working with for profit, not-for-profit, and government organizations, across multiple industries around the globe to help them develop and implement their strategies.
The guidance and tools can be applied in small, mid-sized, and large organizations; their application just needs to be scaled accordingly. While this is a practical “how to” book, the tools and approaches presented are based on a solid foundation of well-established theory and extensive research that is also highlighted within each chapter. The contents can benefit those new to “strategy” as well as seasoned strategy professionals, current and aspiring senior managers, middle- and front-line managers, functional experts, and strategy consultants.Homepage
