Strategy Synthesis: Managing Strategy Paradoxes to Create Competitive Advantage
4 Rev ed
1 Jan 2014
Now in its fourth edition, Strategy Synthesis takes a truly global perspective. Retaining the unique 'paradox' approach of the previous editions whereby a series of contrasting viewpoints are provided to invite student and professional discussion and debate, this new edition takes the approach one step further to acknowledge the developmental role which China and India have had in the business world, and includes strategic thinking philosophies from these countries. Unlike many other books on the subject, the philosophy at the heart of Bob de Wit's Strategy Synthesis text is that an understanding of the topic of strategy can only be gained by grappling with a wider diversity of insights from many prominent thinkers, and the clear recognition that there is no simple answer to the question of what strategy is. This new edition bridges West and East, North and South, with examples, short cases, quotes, and insights from around the globe.
