Description

Whilst there are a wide number of competing definitions of strategy there is a consensus about its importance and about its ability to determine whether a company succeeds or fails.

This is the most comprehensive collection to date on all aspects of strategy.

The collection:

* explores different conceptions of strategy, from the classical, rational models of Porter, through the empirical, emergent emphasis of Mintzberg to the competence based models of Grant and others

* considers the relationship between strategy and other subjects including economics and organisational studies

* covers key new developments including scenario planning, networks and strategic groups and knowledge

* looks at the implications of globalization and international management

* examines key strategic decisions including diversification and mergers and acquisitions.

With a new introduction by the editor and an extensive index, this collection is an invaluable reference tool and teaching aid.
