Overview

The Wiley Strategic Management Series aims to illustrate the ‘best in global strategic management’ for academics, business practitioners and consultants. This book addresses some of the most significant issues currently facing business strategists, including restructuring and reorganization, global competition, strategic change, and organizational learning. These issues are, of course, currently relevant but as thoughts and approaches to management issues they are timeless in their nature and importance. Strategic Renaissance and Business Transformation addresses one of the Strategic Management Society’s primary concerns — building and maintaining bridges between management theory and business practice.
