THE STRATEGIST by Cynthia Montgomery

THE STRATEGIST by Cynthia Montgomery“Are you a strategist?” That's the first question Cynthia Montgomery asks the business owners and senior executives from all over the world who participate in her highly regarded executive education course at Harvard Business School. It's not a question they anticipate or care much about on opening day. But by the time the program ends, they cannot imagine leading their companies to success without being—and living the role of—a strategist.

Now, in The Strategist (9780062071019, hardcover, $27.99), Cynthia Montgomery exposes your students to the invaluable insights she shares with the these privileged executives. By distilling the experiences and insights gleaned in her classroom, Montgomery helps students develop the skills and sensibilities they need to become strategists themselves—and she introduces them to a more dynamic model of strategy that is better grounded and better suited for the competitive realities they will face as managers. She puts them at the center of the process as leaders who must be clear about their companies’ purpose and goals so the day-to-day decisions by people throughout their future businesses will move the company forward.

“Cynthia Montgomery stimulates you as a business leader to be owner, creator, and ongoing steward of your company’s strategy. I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend this book.”
—Dr. Tom Clarke, President of New Business Ventures, Nike, Inc.
