From the Back Cover

Put strategic thinking into action

Building on the fundamental tenets of competence-based strategic management, The New Strategic Management: Organization, Competition, and Competence clearly defines a new conceptual foundation for strategic thinking and action. Authors Ron Sanchez and Aimé Heene offer a clear framework that incorporates the essential features of traditional strategy analysis within the dynamic, systemic, cognitive, and holistic views of organizations, competition, and cooperation that have emerged under the competence banner in the past decade.

The New Strategic Management will help you:

• Understand how to create competitive advantages within today’s complex and constantly changing markets.

• Design and implement an effective "Strategic Logic" for defining and achieving an organization’s goals.

• Effectively manage a firm’s resources and build its capabilities.

• Develop and use the collective intelligence of the organization.

• Create self-managing organizational processes.

• Lead sustainable processes for value creation and value distribution.

Features:

  • Integrates the key ideas from many perspectives on strategic management into one coherent framework.
  • Clearly distinguishes strategic management responsibilities from the tasks of operational managers.
  • Focuses on a set of well-defined, carefully interrelated, and fundamentally important strategic management concepts.
  • Provides both mini-cases and full-length cases give you opportunities to analyze strategic issues in realistic business situations.

Format: Hardcover
Sanchez & Heene make a dreadfully poor attempt to put a new spin on existing management theory with a puerile, crude and immature model of the organisation. They then attempt to dress it up in convoluted, pathetic jargon in a vain attempt to salvage some credibility. All for naught.

Superficially, the concept is interesting - attempting to approach strategy and operations management from an organisational (i.e. structure) perspective. However, this book never does more than complicate, convolute and bastardize existing, well-accepted clear strategy, operations and organisational concepts into a badly framed, poorly expressed hotchpotch of unnecessary absurdity, without adding anything new or interesting. Academics for the sake of academics. Business sense and real-world understanding seem to have no place in this farce of prattle.

In a 305-page reference book, the index is only 3 pages and many key topics are not even noted in the index. Absolutely pathetic. It just shows how professionally careless and lazy the authors and editors are.

Unfortunately, Amazon does not permit negative stars, because this book actively diminishes your knowledge rather than adding to it.

Format: Hardcover
Reading Sanchez and Heene trying to explain their concepts is like listening to a severely brain damaged pre-schooler trying to explain a complex theory of astrophysics with wax crayon drawings not fit for a fridge. It all ends in embarrassment and the hopeless despair of ignorance.

The authors simply do not know what they are talking about. Their attempts at flimsy academic nostrum are so appallingly poor because the authors neither understand the content, nor attempt to use any research whatsoever to provide even the most trivial modicum of a theoretical basis of argument.

If I lined my birdcage with this book, the birds would be too indignant even to sh_t on it.

A waste of time and money ($117!!!).
