Strategic Analysis: A Guide to Practice

Waldersee, Robert W. & Tywoniak, Stephane (2007) Strategic Analysis: A Guide to Practice. McGraw Hill, North Ryde.

Abstract

Strategic Analysis: A Guide to Practice is uniquely designed to bridget the theory-practice divide. The book presents the fundamentals of strategic management theory alongside methods of analysis. Analytical mehtods are then applied to the theoretical concepts to describe best practice.

Students will be able to develop their skills with applciation exercises that allow them to practise the theories and analytical methods on real cases. The book contains a running case, "WineRidge", that allos the students to develop a comprehensive strategic analysis of a single organisation. Unlike traditional cases, WineRidge has been designed as a set of reports that mirrors the type of information from which an analyst would work.

In an environment of KPIs, profit centres, devolved decision making, project organisations and new public sector management, graduates will soon find themselves making strategic decisions. Yet many educators increasingly feel that the traditional approach to teaching strategy (based on detailed theory education) does not translate into an ability to apply what is learned. Strategic Analysis: A Guide to Practice provides that vital link.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
