Product description


"Paul Schoemaker belongs to an extremely exclusive club -- the one for business authors who are both leading-edge practitioners and academic researchers. This extraordinary book offers eminently practical, yet theoretically pure, advice for managers in these uncertain times." (Hugh Courtney, Ph.D. McKinsey consultant and author of 20/20 Foresight)

"The title says it all...Schoemaker guides us through the uncertainties and anxieties that confound business post-dotcom/post-September 11/post-Enron/post-economic downturn. He shows how businesspeople can create scenarios that will make them prepared and how the prepared can exploit the opportunities inherent in an uncertain world." (Professor Marvin Zonis, Graduate School of Business, University of Chicago)

"This is the strategic equivalent of a good liberal arts education. It teaches you a broad-based approach that will keep you from being surprised by change." (Alberto Ibargüen Publisher, The Miami Herald)

"Paul Schoemaker describes a strategic process that will better prepare organizations for the future. This book is an invaluable guide for managers in both the public and private sectors." (Henry Hatch, 47th Chief of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Commanding General) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
