Abstract

This book is the first of its kind to offer readers a comprehensive view of the complex array of executive, operational, financial, human resource, technological and other management issues that collectively impact organizational performance. Utilizing real-world accounts, each section examines one of the major strategic management mistakes that companies have made when trying to resolve problems with their performance.

You will gain valuable insight into the underlying issues in each case, including:

  • An understanding of the detrimental effect that departmentalized business structures and functions have had on organizational decision-making.
  • An appreciation of the strategic importance of the Finance, Human Resources and Information Technology functions.
  • Greater awareness of the competitive edge that your organization's stakeholders (customers, employees, suppliers and investors) can offer.
Above all, you will come away with a renewed sense of urgency. It will compel you to move beyond the outdated ideas and institutions that your department, company, or industry has inherited. It will provide you with the tools and know-how that you need to begin construction on a more promising (and profitable) future of your own making.
