Good Strategy Bad Strategy
Good Strategy/Bad Strategy uses fascinating examples from business, nonprofit, and military affairs to bring its original and pragmatic ideas to life. Reflecting an astonishing grasp and integration of economics, finance, technology, history, and the brilliance and foibles of the human character, Good Strategy/Bad Strategy stems from Richard Rumelt's decades of digging beyond the superficial to address hard questions with honesty and integrity.

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 will show you:
  • How to clear out the mumbo jumbo and muddled thinking underlying too many strategies
  • A clear way to create and implement a powerful action-oriented strategy for the real world
  • Rumelt's nine sources of power-ranging from using leverage to effectively focusing on growth-are eye-opening yet pragmatic tools that can be put to work on Monday morning
