Editorial Reviews

Review

“Cynthia Montgomery stimulates you as a business leader, to be owner, creator and ongoing steward of your company’s strategy. She uses her vast experiences in executive education to create engaging and stimulating exampling of successful strategies; both in purpose and execution. I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend this book.” — Dr. Tom Clarke, President of New Business Ventures, Nike, Inc.

“Cynthia Montgomery’s The Strategist debunks the Myth of the Super-Manager, capable of overcoming any and all competitive forces. Instead, Montgomery prescribes a clear roadmap to develop successful, customized strategies for organizations and the people who lead them.” — Craigie Zildjian, CEO, Avedis Zildjian Company

“In this refreshing book, Montgomery brings out the Strategist in each of us. Wherever you are in the world, as a student, teacher or practitioner of strategy, you will find this book a joyful companion as you reinvent yourself and the world around you.” — Ashok Vasudevan, Founder and CEO of Tasty Bite

“Montgomery’s approach to demystifying strategy is revolutionary. This book will make you sit up and take actions that will have a lasting and positive effect on your company. If you are ready for a life changing journey, read on.” — Peter Henderson, Chairman, Indigo Telecomm

“This is a personal call to action for leaders to continuously ask themselves why their organizations matter today and will matter tomorrow. In doing so, vitality can be triggered breathing new life into the day-to-day life of a company.” — Tucson Citizen

“It takes a bold...writer to venture once more into this particular breach….Montgomery offers a clear summary of how to think about the overlap between strategy and execution. In terms of basic usefulness, [this book] outshines books several times its length.” — Financial Times
