Every month, the case study department of Harvard Business Review comes up with new interesting case studies comprising of fictitious business problems and this book takes six such case studies along with the insight and analysis on these case studies from the experts.

The book talks about the dilemma in formulating a strategy in six different situations such as the problems of managing a mature organization, whether to go global, whether to concentrate on the core business areas or to diverge etc. Each of the problems also gets complicated with the fictitious fabric of personal dilemma and challenges, which enables the readers to think deeply about the situations and to distill the actual core of the problems. Such descriptive narration of a situation helps the readers to draw an analogy to the daily real-life business situations and provokes interesting perspective of the situations. Further more, each of the problems in the case studies are then analyzed by different experts to demonstrate a good framework of analysis to conclude a strategic decision.

This book will be a good choice for people in the middle or upper management who regularly get involved in the strategic initiatives to steer an organization to the desired course. The analysis of the situations, corollary of the thoughts will inspire the readers to think creatively and go beyond the situations depicted in the book. The case studies are short and to the point and the case analysis methodologies are very interesting reading for a strategic reader. The reader is not expected to be an expert in the field to understand the nuances of the problem and the analogies in the situations, I felt, are very effective.
