If you are serious about strategy you probably are also busy and the Strategy Pathfinder is the perfect companion - you can go directly to the area that you are interested in and, because each chapter is complete in itself, you will quickly bring yourself up-to-date in the latest thinking on strategy.

If you are serious about strategy you probably are also busy and the Strategy Pathfinder is the perfect companion - you can go directly to the area that you are interested in and, because each chapter is complete in itself, you will quickly bring yourself up-to-date in the latest thinking on strategy.

A virtue is the concise nature of the book, but it is not superficial. I have used the book and found that it helped me to more fully understand strategy.

The reviews of the book in the product description are spot on - It is one of those rare books that doesn't feed you but allows you to think. It doesn't patronise it is provocative. It stimulates and is thought provoking.

If you want to be spoken at then this is not the book for you - if want something that is thoughtful and engaging and that will help you with understand and actually use strategy, then this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent condensed read on strategy, 28 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the newer Kindle version of this after owning a previous print version (required text during my MBA, taught by one of the authors.) It's still refreshing: brings together new and old concepts of business strategy, with - importantly - pathways and methods for making use of them. (I use the authors' ESTEMPLE methodology all the time.)

It's far shorter than most overblown strategy textbooks, yet no less complete. It makes a good go-to reference when you're trying to get a business problem straight in your head: if you're faced with analysing or driving any business (not just a big one) there's probably a model in this book to follow. Overall, a great coursebook, but also a great cookbook for dipping into.
