Reviews & endorsements
"The Short Introduction to Strategic Management gives a solid grounding in the strategy field and updates corporate decision makers on how to deal with contemporary challenges in turbulent business environments. This book makes a valuable contribution to the management literature." - Richard A. Bettis, Ellison Distinguished Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, Kenan-Flagler Business School, University of North Carolina at Chapel HillSee more reviews
"Andersen provides a whistle stop tour of strategy, more useful to the partially knowledgeable than the complete beginner. The text is readable and authoritative. With more than 300 references, little is left out. A valuable addition to your bookshelf." - Andrew Campbell, Director, Ashridge Strategic Management Centre
"This book gives a comprehensive overview of the difficulties and options in defining and implementing successful and resilient business strategies. Organizations differ and conditions change, so there is no one-size-fits-all approach as demonstrated in the book. Yet, it provides strong guidelines as to where to 'look' for relevant solutions and approaches." - Hans Læssøe, Senior Director, Strategic Risk Management, The LEGO Group
"The integrative strategy approach where autonomous entrepreneurial initiatives interact with central strategy making processes to form a dynamic system is interesting … it provides a useful framework for thinking about how to set up a responsive organization." - Robert A. Burgelman, Edmund W. Littlefield Professor of Management, Graduate School of Business, Stanford University
