Description

Developing and implementing a strategy is the central task of a leader, whether the CEO at a Fortune 100 company, an entrepreneur, a church pastor, the head of a school, or a government official. Richard Rumelt argues that the heart of a good strategy is insight—into the true nature of the situation, into the hidden power in a situation, and into an appropriate response. He shows you how insight can be cultivated with a wide variety of tools for guiding your own thinking.

Good Strategy/Bad Strategy integrates fascinating examples from business, nonprofit, and military affairs to bring its original ideas to life: From Apple to General Motors, from the two Iraq wars to Afghanistan, from a small local market to Wal-Mart, from the Getty Trust to the Los Angeles Unified School District, from Global Crossing to the 2007-08 financial crisis, and many more. The abundance of business-ready insights offered by Rumelt stem from his decades of digging beyond the superficial to address hard questions with honesty and integrity.

        Starred review from March 15, 2012
        Rumelt has been profiled in "The Economist" as one of 25 living persons who have had the most influence on management concepts and corporate practice. In this intriguing work, he explains three simple steps to developing a business strategy, a core skill of any leader in any organization. He defines good strategy as figuring out the nature of the business challenge, designing a guiding policy that produces an advantage, and creating a set of coordinated actions to carry out that policy. As Rumelt clearly delineates, insight into the hidden power of a situation is the heart of good strategy. He explains his various tools for guiding thinking and includes numerous business examples, as well as success stories from the nonprofit sector and military settings that bring to life his lofty ideas. VERDICT Narrator Sean Runnette's refreshing, clear reading further strengthens the extensively researched material from this distinguished business thinker. Highly recommended for all university libraries supporting business curriculum. [For a less laudatory take on this title, read the review of the Crown hc, "LJ" 7/11.--Ed.]--Dale Farris, Groves, TX
