Robert M. Grant combines a highly accessible writing style with a concentration on the fundamentals of value creation and an emphasis on practicality in this leading strategy text.
In this new edition several topics have increased emphasis including: platform-based competition and ‘ecosystems’ of related industries; the role of strategy making processes/practices; mergers, acquisitions and alliances; and additional emphasis on strategy implementation.
Contemporary Strategy Analysis, 10th edition, is the latest installment of Robert M. Grant’s widely adopted and internationally acclaimed book on strategy analysis in a business context. An ideal study companion for MBA and advanced undergraduate courses, Grant employs his vibrant and accessible writing style to introduce the core concepts and principles of strategy analysis, whilst combining a rigorous approach to business strategy with highly relevant illustrations of current practice. The rich collection of contemporary examples which run throughout the book present an in-depth focus on strategy implementation, particularly the pressures on companies to reconcile scale economies with entrepreneurial flexibility, innovation with cost-efficiency and globalization with local responsiveness.
The 10th edition is fully revised and updated to include greater emphasis on strategy implementation, platform-based competition and industry “ecosystems”, the role of strategy-making processes and practices, and mergers, acquisitions and alliances.
Contemporary Strategy Analysis comes equipped with a strong package of additional teaching materials, including author videos, PowerPoint slides, instructor’s manual, testbank and case teaching notes, all of which can be found at www.wiley.com/college/grant.
