Co-authors Gopinath and Siciliano have created a valuable and informational text that allows learners to analyze a variety of strategy models and concepts in order to gain a better understanding of strategic management theory. The book presents many in- and out-of-class exercises that offer students a more applied and in-depth learning experience.
Active learning exercises promote a thorough understanding of strategic management, and authors have highlighted several new cases for analysis and discussion throughout the book. STRATEGIZE!: Experiential Exercises in Strategic Management, International Edition, 3rd Edition provides instructors and learners with a new exercise on the balanced scorecard and scenario planning that includes a variety of thought, action, and feedback-assessment components.
All exercises and scenarios have been thoroughly updated to provide accurate and relevant information that ensure consistency with changing strategic management concepts. STRATEGIZE!: Experiential Exercises in Strategic Management, International Edition, 3rd Edition offers an important complement to any standard strategic management text.
