"In this unique book, management science lifts its view to take in the broader horizons of strategy. the result is a frame work for strategy development, and a range of methods and models to make it operational." - Professor Jonathan Rosenhead, London School of Economics "This book will be invaluable for both strategists who need practical tools and for management scientists who are interested in strategic decisions."- John Mingers, Professor of Operational research and Systems, Kent Business School, University of Kent, UK "The authors see strategy formulation and implementations as inseparable activities in which every organisation engages on a continuous basis. This means that this book has the wide scope needed by a manger, from visioning through to performance measurement and financial evaluation. By brining the range of contributors need to cover this space, the authors have managed to provide both a conceptual frame work and the detail needed by real managers who can benefit from the tools and methods described." - Gill Ringland, CEO and Fellow, SAMI Consulting, St Andrews Management Institute In Changing world, there is no option to stand still; organisations need to review their direction, to create new initiatives, and crucially they need to rehearse their ideas rather than hope for the best.
