Why you should read Strategy
Too many businesses fail to make the connection between strategy and implementation. Having great ideas is terrific, but they won’t do you much good if you can’t execute them. Years ago, Sam Walton may have suspected that high volume and low prices would lead to extraordinary retail success, but he understood that he would need a dependable system to deliver the goods. This practical manual supplements clear explanations with sidebars that call attention to common stumbling blocks and offer useful tips, lists, charts, sample plans and forms, and with chapter summaries. The book also includes an appendix that provides worksheets, the address of a companion Web site, a glossary and useful suggestions for further reading. getAbstract believes that any executive or manager will be able to relate to the book’s underlying message: If you’re going to do something, do it right.
