Crafting and Executing Strategy: Concepts and Readings: Global Edition with Connect

9780071314589: Crafting and Executing Strategy: Concepts and Readings: Global Edition with Connect

The 18th edition of Crafting and Executing Strategy represents one of our most important and thoroughgoing revisions ever. The newest member of the author team, Margie Peteraf, led a thorough re-examination of every paragraph on every page of the 17th edition chapters. The overriding objectives were to inject new perspectives and the best academic thinking, strengthen linkages to the latest research findings, modify the coverage and exposition as needed to ensure squarely on-target content, and give every chapter a major facelift. While this 18th edition retains the same 12-chapter structure of the prior edition, every chapter has been totally refreshed. And the chapter content continues to be solidly mainstream and balanced, mirroring both the best academic thinking and the pragmatism of real-world strategic management.

An attractive collection of 20 relevant, readable, and recent readings that amplify important topics in managing a company's strategy-making, strategy-executing process is included in this Concepts and Readings version to provide students with a taste of the literature of strategic management before tackling cases or simulation projects.
