About this book


Written primarily for students taking courses in strategy at undergraduate and MBA level, Strategic Concepts provides a balanced analysis and guide to the main trends and concepts in business strategy over recent years.

Particular attention is paid to: Size and Rationalisation; Supply Chain Co-ordination; Specialisation and Diversification; Innovation and Imitation; Divestment, Mergers and Strategic Alliances.
