Why this Book? It presents a dynamic concept for promoting sound strategic thinking. It is aimed at top managers who are concerned about the direction of their organizations, and this is quite independent & different from the operational details involved in long-range planning. This book should enable you to better answer such questions as:
“What do I want my organization to be?”
“Where should it be five-ten years from now?”
“What kind of information do I need to set strategy?”
“How do I use that information? ”
“Once strategy is set, how can I make sure that the strategy is used effectively to drive the organization?”
The Driving Force is the key to strategic thinking. The Authors maintain that there are nine basic Strategic Areas, any or all of which can decisively influence the successful attaining of an organization’s future goal. But at a given point in time, one and only one of these areas should be singled out and made the Driving Force, around which the consideration of all future strategic options will be centered.
Determining the Driving Force of your organization is a tough, practical assignment, but this book will help you define, test, and validate each Strategic Area.
Real World situations. This book is based on the real-life consulting experiences of the authors – who have helped a wide range of CEOs and their top teams in both the private & public sectors to set their future strategic direction. ”
