Overview

ESSENTIALS OF STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT, Third Edition, is a brief version of the authors' market-leading text STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT: AN INTEGRATED APPROACH, helping students identify and focus on core concepts in the field in a more succinct, streamlined format. Based on real-world practices and current thinking, the text's presentation of strategic management features an increased emphasis on the "business model" concept as a way of framing the issues of competitive advantage. Cutting-edge research, new strategic management theory, and a hands-on approach allow students to explore major topics in management, including corporate performance, governance, strategic leadership, technology, and business ethics. Its high-quality case program examines small, medium, and large companies—both domestic and international—so that students gain practice putting chapter concepts into action.

    FYI!!! Textbooks can not be viewed on tablets

    I purchased this and another textbook for purpose of mobility through a tablet. But Nook thinks it's most effective to stay on PC and Macs strictly. I definitely would have liked the convenience of the textbook being available on tablets. Now, I have to bring my 6.6 Ibs vaio to two classes with a 2 hour battery life, while I bring my 3.3 Ibs android tablet with a 9-12 hr battery life to my other class from a different book company.
