About the book: 

Shortlisted for the 2013 Chartered Management Institute textbook award, Practicing Strategy broke new ground when it first published by focusing on the strategy-as-practice approach, which considers strategy not only as something an organization has but something which its members do.

The new edition deals with a selection of topics that have been central in recent academic debates in the strategy-as-practice areaAlso new to the second edition are:

  • Seven new chapters on topics such as Chief Executive Officers, Middle Managers, Strategic Alignment and Strategic Ambidexterity in line with developments in the field
  • New case studies throughout including Narayana health, the turnaround of Reliant group and relocating a business school

The approach through a mix of academic studies and applied research is aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate students taking advanced strategy modules and practitioners alike.
