This book provides the reader with a critical understanding of the core debates in strategy and change. After an exploration of the dominant approaches to strategy, the way in which these approaches relate to those of change is examined. The concept of management mindsets - influenced by the dominant culture of the organization - is introduced to discover how these mindsets influence strategy formulation and response to change. This book also explores the key themes in radical views of strategy, presenting a challenging view of chaos, turbulence, and the sorts of approaches required of the manager that go beyond rationalist recipes in developing strategy and managing change. This book is ideal reading advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students of strategic and change management.
