Outstanding treatment of the subject,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Strategic Management Theory: An Integrated Approach (Paperback)There is no question that for a graduate course in business strategy, either in an MBA or a PhD program, that this book serves as an excellent textbook, covering all aspects of businees strategy in a global economy. All strategies are covered, along with each advantage and disadvantage. Strategies for expansion and survival into foreign markets, as well as locally are fully covered. Of course, the requirements for competetive advantage and how to get there is given thorough treatment.
For the person in business who wants to review or read about business strategies, this book is also an excellent reference tool.
The case studies throuout the book are very illustrative of the points being made.
One thing to be aware of is that the publisher's website does not always deliver to the student all that is promised. If a new edition is published even within weeks of an older edition, then the student who purchased the older edition finds him or herself wihtout much of the promised information available. This happened to me. The ninth edition was published right before my semester started, and the school had already purchased the 8th edition. I contacted the publisher over this, and basically I was S.O.L.
I shall use the text as a reference for years to come.
