Description : Strategic management involves formulation and implementation of the major goals and initiatives taken by a company's top management on behalf of owners, based on consideration of resources and an assessment of the internal and external environments in which the organization competes. Strategic management provides overall direction to the enterprise and involves specifying the organization's objectives, developing policies and plans designed to achieve these objectives, and then allocating resources to implement the plans. Academics and practicing managers have developed numerous models and frameworks to assist in strategic decision making in the context of complex environments and competitive dynamics. Strategic management is not static in nature; the models often include a feedback loop to monitor execution and inform the next round of planning.

Description : Principles and Practices of Strategic Management teaches undergraduate students of management about strategic planning and decision making. Unlike many traditional textbooks that focus on strategy in an overly broad or theoretical manner, this text approaches strategy as results-driven, data-driven, and dynamic. Featuring contemporary topics that are of high interest to students, the book emphasizes the practical, rather than the theoretical. The book is divided into four sections. The first, "Charting the Direction of the Organization," helps students understand the management process and define a meaningful vision. The second, "Understanding the Organization in Context," addresses governance, social responsibility, corporate and resource sustainability, and the external environment. In the third section, "Considering Strategic Options," the selected readings talk about assessing an organization's capabilities, evaluating the value chain, and examining innovation. The final section, "Managing for Results," offers insight into ensuring that strategies are complete and clear, placing strategies in a global context, and leading strategically. Vignettes before chapters cover hot topics and the trends companies are currently following. The book features key terms, concept check/mini-quizzes, and end-of-chapter exercises that enhance retention and provide for linkages to computer-based simulations. Throughout the book, global and multinational strategic plans are considered from a results orientation, supported by extensive research and practical experience. Principles and Practices of Strategic Management is designed for undergraduate strategic management courses. The material has been extensively class-tested, and is also helpful to professionals in both for-profit and non-profit business environments.

Description : More than two millennia ago the famous Chinese general Sun Tzu wrote the classic work on military strategy, The Art of War. Now, in a new edition of Sun Tzu and the Art of Business, Mark McNeilly shows how Sun Tzu's strategic principles can be applied to twenty-first century business. Here are two books in one: McNeilly's synthesis of Sun Tzu's ideas into six strategic principles for the business executive, plus the text of Samuel B. Griffith's popular translation of The Art of War. McNeilly explains how to gain market share without inciting competitive retaliation, how to attack competitors' weak points, and how to maximize market information for competitive advantage. He demonstrates the value of speed and preparation in throwing the competition off-balance, employing strategy to beat the competition, and the need for character in leaders. Lastly, McNeilly presents a practical method to put Sun Tzu's principles into practice. By using modern examples throughout the book from Google, Zappos, Amazon, Dyson, Aflac, Singapore Airlines, Best Buy, the NFL, Tata Motors, Starbucks, and many others, he illustrates how, by following the wisdom of history's most respected strategist, executives can avoid the pitfalls of management fads and achieve lasting competitive advantage.

Description : The standard curriculum for most MBA-level strategic management courses starts from the Porter analysis of external competitive advantages from the 1980s, and then moves onto the Barney analysis of internal valuable, imitable, and rare resources within the business organization from the 1990s. For the new century, the current book builds on this solid foundation to delve into the collective wisdom of many pioneers in strategic management, finance, and technology etc. At any rate, the current book complements the mainstream Porter-Barney threads and insights within the broader business context of strategic management. Many of the new strategic management principles further apply to our day-to-day habits and lifestyles in association with self-help, inspiration, effective time management, and personal finance etc. The current book is a rich collection of in-depth summaries of the top 40 strategic management books from 2000 to present. The new strategic management principles go beyond the traditional analysis of both external competitive advantages and internal rare resources etc. The real-world business cases include Apple, Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway, Facebook, Google, Goldman Sachs, Intel, McKinsey, Microsoft, SpaceX, and Tesla etc. The main strategic management principles include lean startup, global finance, blue-ocean strategy, platform competition, business agility, dual transformation, disruptive innovation, and so forth. Each book chapter serves as an independent business case study for great illumination and generic life wisdom. This book serves as a practical guide for most business leaders, corporate decision-makers, strategic managers, management scholars, and pragmatic experts who wish to learn more about the art and science of modern management in the new century. The table of contents lists the 40 book titles on strategic management, their authors, and some descriptive details. In essence, the current book can be a useful resource for strategic managers and MBA candidates who would like the opportunity to sharpen the saw over time.

Description : The easy-to-adopt strategies that make companies from Coca-Cola to Starbucks perennial over-performers and that you can use, too High Performance Companies complements the frameworks for strategy making detailed in many existing books, proposing a number of rules of thumb (or principles) that companies can consider when making their day-to-day decisions which, in turn, will determine their actual strategies. These principles traverse a wide range of scenarios, such as strategic changes implemented by companies, resource allocation decisions—especially towards building durable assets—and resource acquisition through inorganic means. The book adopts a reader-friendly approach by teasing out the lessons to be found in detailed cases studies from interesting companies. The writing minimizes jargon while maintaining rigor, especially with regard to the applicability and relevance of the strategic principles to different business contexts. Cites extensive evidence in support of the proposed arguments, without sacrificing readability Combines both short and long case studies within each chapter to demonstrate the general applicability of the principles presented Uses a variety of examples ranging from well-known companies such as Coca-Cola, Singapore Airlines, and Starbucks to relatively lesser known companies such as Illinois Tool Work, SAS Institute, and Heng Long Leather to show that the principles presented are applicable everywhere Providing valuable new insight into what makes a business successful and how to replicate this in a company of any size, High Performance Companies is an essential addition to the library of any manager or student of business.
