Thorough yet concise, ESSENTIALS OF STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT, Third Edition, is a brief version of the authors’ market-leading text STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT: AN INTEGRATED APPROACH. Following the same framework as the larger book, ESSENTIALS helps you identify and focus on core concepts in the field in a more succinct, streamlined format. Based on real-world practices and current thinking, the text’s presentation of strategic management features an increased emphasis on the "business model" concept as a way of framing the issues of competitive advantage. Cutting-edge research, new strategic management theory, and a hands-on approach allow you to explore major topics in management, including corporate performance, governance, strategic leadership, technology, and business ethics. In addition, a high-quality case program examines small, medium, and large companies--both domestic and international--so that you gain plenty of experience putting chapter concepts into real-world practice in a variety of situations.
