We wrote Strategic Management and Business Policy to introduce you to strategic management—afield of inquiry that focuses on the organization as a whole and its interactions with its environment. The corporate world is in the process of transformation driven by information technology (in particular the Internet) and globalization. Strategic management takes a panoramic view of this changing corporate terrain and attempts to show how large and small firms can be more effective and efficient not only in today's world, but in tomorrow's as well.

This text contains the latest theory and research currently available in strategic management. We sifted through the past 5 years' worth of articles from the following academic and business publications: Academy of Management Journal, Strategic Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Administrative Science Quarterly, Journal of Management, Long Range Planning, Organization Science, Academy of Management Executive, Organizational Dynamics, Journal of Business Strategy, SAM Advanced Management Journal, Journal of Business Strategies, Strategy and Leadership (previously Planning Review), Strategy and Business, Competitive Intelligence, Journal of Business Venturing, Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, Harvard Business Review, Business Week, and The Economist.

Both the concepts and the cases have been class-tested in strategy courses and revised based on feedback from students and instructors. The first 10 chapters are organized around a strategic management model that prefaces each chapter and provides a structure for both content and case analysis. We emphasize those concepts thathave proven to be most useful in understanding strategic decision-making and in conducting case analysis. Our goal was to make the text as comprehensive as possible without getting bogged down in any t area. Endnote references are provided for those who wish to learn more about any particular topic. All cases in the combined text and the case text are about actual organizations. The firms range in size from large, established multinationals to small, entrepreneurial ventures, and cover a broad variety of issues. As an aid to case analysis, we propose the strategic audit as an analytical technique.


This book focuses on the following objectives, typically found in most strategic management and business policy courses:

  • To develop an understanding of strategic management concepts, research, and theories.
  • To develop a framework of analysis to enable a student to identify central issues and problems in complex, comprehensive cases; to suggest alternative courses of action; and to present well-supported recommendations for future action.
  • To develop conceptual skills so that a student is able to integrate previously learned aspects of corporations.
  • To develop an understanding of the global economy and the Internet and their current and potential impact on business activities in any location.
  • To develop an understanding of the role of corporate governance in strategic management.
  • To develop the ability to analyze and evaluate, both quantitatively and qualitatively, the performance of the people responsible for strategic decisions.
  • To bridge the gap between theory and practice by developing an understanding of when and how to apply concepts and techniques learned in earlier courses on marketing, accounting, finance, management, production, and information systems.
  • To improve research capabilities necessary to gather and interpret key environmental data.
  • To develop a better understanding of the present and future environments in which corporations must function.
  • To develop analytical and decision-making skills for dealing with complex conceptual problems in an ethical manner.

This book achieves these objectives by presenting and explaining concepts and theories useful in understanding the strategic management process. It critically analyzes studies in the field of strategy to acquaint the student with the literature of this area and to help develop the student's research capabilities. It also suggests a model of strategic management. It recommends the strategic audit as 1 approach to the systematic analysis of complex organization-wide issues. Through a series of special issue and comprehensive cases (available in the combined text and the cases text), it provides the student with an opportunity to apply concepts, skills, and techniques to real-world corporate problems. The book focuses on the business corporation because of its crucial position in the economic system of the world and in the material development of any society.

Time-Tested Features

This edition contains many of the same features and content that helped make previous editions successful. Some of the features are the following:

  • A strategic management model runs throughout the first 10 chapters as a unifying concept. (Explained in Chapter 1)
  • Corporate governance is examined in terms of the roles, responsibilities, and interactions of top management and the board of directors. (Chapter 2)
  • Social responsibility and managerial ethics are examined in detail in terms of how they affect strategic decision making. (Chapter 2)
  • Equal emphasis is placed on environmental scanning of the societal environment as well as on the task environment. Topics include forecasting and Miles and Snow's typology in addition to Porter's industry analysis. (Chapter 3)
  • Core and distinctive competencies are examined within the framework of the resource-based view of the firm.(Chapter 4)
  • Internal and external strategic factors are emphasized through the use of specially-designed EFAS, IFAS, and SFAS tables. (Chapters 3, 4, and 5)
  • Two chapters deal with issues in strategy implementation, such as organizational and job design plus strategy-manager fit, action planning, and corporate culture. (Chapters 8 and 9)
  • A separate chapter on evaluation and control explains the importance of measurement and incentives to organizational performance. (Chapter 10)
  • The strategic audit, a way to operationalize the strategic decision-making process, provides a tested methodology in case analysis. (Chapter 10)
  • Special chapters deal with strategic issues in managing technology and innovation, entrepreneurial ventures and small businesses, and not-for-profit organizations. (Chapters 11, 12, and 13, respectively) These issues are often ignored by other strategy textbooks.
  • Suggestions for in-depth case analysis provide a complete listing of financial ratios, recommendations for oral and written analysis, and ideas for further research. (Chapter 14)
  • The Strategic Audit Worksheet is based on the time-tested strategic audit and is designed to help students organize and structure daily case preparation in a brief period of time. The worksheet works exceedingly well for checking the level of daily student case preparation-especially for open class discussions of cases. (Chapter 14)
  • Key Theory As It Applies Capsules in various chapters explain key theories underlying strategic management. This feature adds emphasis to the theories, but does not interrupt the flow of the text material.
  • Projections for the 21st Century end each chapter by forecasting what the world will be like in 2010.
  • An experiential exercise focusing on the material covered in each chapter helps the reader to apply strategic concepts to an actual situation.
  • A list of key terms and the pages in which they are discussed enable the reader to keep track of important concepts as they are introduced in each chapter.
  • Timely, well-researched, and class-tested cases (available in the combined text and the cases text) deal with interesting companies and industries. Many of the cases are about well-known, publicly held corporations—ideal subjects for further research by students wishing to "update" the cases.
  • An Industry Note for use in industry analysis of the major home appliance industry is included for use by itself or with the Maytag case (available in the combined text and the cases text).
