Mintzberg has set the agenda in the sphere of strategic management with a combination of academic rigour and a devotion to seeking out new perspectives, which has generally set him apart from his contemporaries. This reached a climax with the publication of The Rise and Fall of Strategic Planning, a coherent tour-deforce which sounded the death knell for the strategic planning orthodoxy that had long dominated management thinking and education. His most recent strategy book is Strategy Safari, co-authored with Bruce Ahlstrand and Joseph Lampel.

While strategists have foundered in old paradigms, a new breed of competitors has emerged. Value destroyers. Old-style thinking understood value destruction when it was confined to an industry and driven by a new product or technology. But what are the implications when the destruction stems from a new way of thinking - from a strategy that simultaneously creates value?

Management Strategy: Sustaining Competitive Advantage, 1st edition, by Alfred Marcus, is a strategy book which focuses on how making winning moves is dependent upon finding profitable patterns that repeatedly meet customer demands for solutions. Where many strategy books have lost sight of the purpose of strategy and fail to show how decisions actually affect business performance and ultimately, outcomes, Management Strategy focuses on the types of analyses the industry, environment, and a company's internal resources require to make effective strategic moves. In eight chapters, this textbook builds upon the analysis process and demonstrates how strategy impacts an organization's position in comparison to its competitors, both in terms of the cost and quality of its products and the scope of businesses in which it is involved (vertical and horizontal integration), as well as its global versus domestic reach. The outcomes that come from analyzing an organization also determine the extent to which the organization will strive to be an innovator as opposed to being a follower.

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2009 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: A, Comenius University in Bratislava (Department of Management), course: Corporate Management, language: English, abstract: KAPLAN/NORTON suggested an enlargement or change of the BSC perspectives to be able to adjust the scorecard system to the individual situation of each company. They were aware that their four classic perspectives were not the central dimensions for every time, but need to be adjusted, when the economic environment of a company changes. Exactly such a change happened, when the digital economy appeared. That is a main reason, why a new perspective is important to consider the e-business strategy. In practice most of the SME use only the four basic perspectives that are described in the fundamental literature. They do neither dare to create alterations of the perspectives nor to change or modify the shown procedure. These companies need a support, how to add the e-business perspective to consider the digital economy. For this reason it is necessary to give stimulation to the business practice, how to handle goals, structures and initiatives of such a new perspective. There is a permanently increasing supply of hardware and software solutions to support or partly take over the processes of the company. The balanced scorecard respects soft facts in its calculations. In the digital economy these soft facts become more and more important. In former times the managing directors of SME often ignored the knock-on effect of soft facts. They orientated mainly about financial figures. But the digital economy has to consider different strategies. Some statistics depict that even up to 80% of a company's profits in the digital economy depend on soft facts. Managers have to learn dealing with soft facts and intrinsic values. As DRUCKER says, the experience of every employee can be used as a source of value added. An employ

The purpose of this study was to understand the nature of the relationship between organizational strategy and district performance among California's largest unified school districts. Organizational strategy was measured using planned and realized strategies (independent variables). Realized strategy is also referred to strategic orientation. Organizational strategy was determined using a questionnaire that included items about strategic plan implementation (intended strategy) and four self-typing paragraphs measuring realized strategy or strategic orientation. District performance was measured using three performance indicators as proxies for operational efficiency, product quality and program equity (dependent variables). The percentage of students in each district receiving free or reduced price lunch, proxy for student socioeconomic background was used as a covariate. The data was analyzed using multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA). Results show that 75% of the district indicated implementing a current strategic plan. Districts appeared more or less evenly divided among four strategy types: prospector, defender, analyzer and reactor, with the latter two accounting for 54% of all respondents. Prospector strategy is oriented toward innovation across programs while defender strategy emphasizes maintenance and efficiency of programs. Analyzer strategy is oriented toward the maintenance of existing effective programs while seeking or developing innovative programs to serve unmet needs. Districts characterized by reactor strategy lack any consistent approach to meeting student needs and tend to respond only to external pressure. The independent variables taken together significantly explained 69% of the variance in operational efficiency and 49% of the variance in product quality. With respect to program equity, the model's result approached significance, explaining 25% of the variance. The results show that organizational strategy is an important construct for superintendents and top administrators to consider in their effort to create an effective and accountable school district. Appended are: (1) School District Strategy Survey 2004; (2) Invitation to Participate; and (3) SPSS--Multivariate Analysis of Variance Output. (Contains 12 tables and 2 figures.) [Ed. D.
