Fast Strategy

Challenge and change are constants in the corporate world. Doz and Kosonen assert, therefore, that the most successful companies are not only strategic, but have agile strategies. They are able to change quickly, even transform themselves without loosing momentum. Drawing on research into winning companies, these authors determine how agile companies are led, organized and make decisions. The first part of the book discusses what it means to be strategically agile. The second part describes how this trait can be fostered and sharpened among employees. In the third and largest part of the book, they describe how this skill can be built, either from scratch or after a setback.
