Learning To Think Strategically 3e by Sloan Julia (Sloan Consulting Inc. Usa)
Strategic thinking has become a core competency for business leaders globally. Overused and under-defined the term is often used interchangeably with other strategic management terms. This textbook delineates and defines strategic thinking as a conceptual cognitive capability focusing on the nonlinear divergent and informal nature of strategic thinking. In this third edition of a popular text the author provides an unconventional definition and model for strategic thinking based on critical theory. This research-based book introduces the concept as the foundation of business strategy that is distinct from strategic planning and strategic implementation. New features including executive summaries and key critical reflective questions along with new and updated figures make the book vital reading for MBA leadership development and executive education students. The practical nature of this book also makes it valuable for business and policy executives managers and emerging leaders.
