Product description


'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' - Andr ® Spicer, Associate Professor of Organisation StudiesWarwick Business School
