About the book:
The role and responsibilities of business today are different than they were in the past. More than any other social institution, it is businesses that will determine our future. Yet companies worldwide continue to underperform. In his latest book, top strategy consultant Tony Manning brings managers the insights and advice they need for the coming decades of turbulence and hypercompetition.
Drawing lessons from 100 years of management history, he highlights the failure of the management advice industry to produce new ideas, showing how most management theory is distracting rather than helpful. He then identifies eight critical strategy practices that have stood the test of time, and explains how to apply them. Based on extensive research and practical experience, this fascinating and practical advice is a must-read for anyone interested in improving business results.
