about this item
Strategic thinking has become a core competency for business leaders globally. Overused and under-defined, the term is often used interchangeably with strategic management. This textbook delineates and defines strategic thinking as a conceptual cognitive capability.
In this refreshed edition of a popular text, the author provides a definition and model for strategic thinking based on critical theory. Focusing on the non-linear, divergent and informal nature of strategic thinking, the book introduces the concept as the foundation stone of business strategy that comes before strategic planning and strategic implementation.
New features, including executive summaries and key critical-reflective questions, make the book vital reading for MBA and other executive education students. The practical nature will also make the book valuable for senior managers and developing leaders.
