"Finally! We have a comprehensive, reflective and critical overview of the field of strategy in the new Handbook of Strategy and Management."
—Cynthia Hardy, Head of Department of Management, University of Melbourne
Presenting a major retrospective and prospective overview of strategy, this Handbook is an important benchmark volume for management scholars worldwide. The Handbook frames, assesses and synthesizes the work in the field. Chapters are grouped under four specific areas of strategy and management: Mapping a Terrain; Thinking and Acting Strategically; Changing Contexts; and Looking Forward.
Within these parts, leading international scholars provide historical overviews of the key themes, address the central approaches which have characterized these themes, critically assess the quality of current theory and knowledge, and set out agendas for future theoretical and empirical development.
The resulting volume is a unique overview of the inputs and dynamics to shape strategy and management and will be crucial reference for academics and students.
A nice collection of articles on various aspects of strategic management
A good companion book for the strategy module.
Excellent book and I am thinking of moving this to an essential text status. I am currently locked into a 'patter' with my teaching team and we are currently evaluating our approach for 2012 through looking at various interim approaches this year. This will be a recommended text for my Masters level Strategy modules (n=160) next semester.
a great collection of articles for the advanced student - but not easy reading
Gives a perfect overview on the field of Strategic Management. The book is too comprehensive to be the essential textbook of my course, however. It might also need a revision soon to keep it up to date to current research an literature.
