by Larry Stimpert, CC Professor of Economics and Business, with Julie A. Chesley, formerly of the CC economics department, and Irene M. Duhaime
The book provides a realistic picture of the dynamic and complex process of strategic management in organizations. Written from the perspective of a manager, Stimpert’s book builds on theories of managerial and organizational knowledge that have had a powerful influence on many business fields over the last two decades. However, “Strategic Thinking” also focuses on how managers understand their business environments, assess and marshal their firms’ resources, and strive for advantage in the competitive marketplace by examining economic, structural, and managerial explanations for firm performance.
