Solving the Strategy Delusion hits at the very core of challenges that most organisations suffer from in the current era. Too many organisations continue to plod along with old-fashioned thinking even if the paradigms have changed dramatically around them. This pioneering book delves into the causes of such delusions which occur around the much-exploited term of strategy. The authors present a compelling in-depth, incisive, and to the point view based on their vast industry experience and decades of academic pursuit on the subject of strategy and organisational behaviour. This is a can’t-put-down book and a must-read for all CEOs and executives wanting to make a real difference! Sanjay Mathur Vice President, India & ASEAN, Foseco at the Vesuvius Group
