Developing and implementing a strategy is the central task of a leader, whether the CEO at a Fortune 100 company, an entrepreneur, a church pastor, the head of a school, or a government official. Richard Rumelt argues that the heart of a good strategy is insight - into the true nature of the situation, into the hidden power in a situation, and into an appropriate response. He shows you how insight can be cultivated with a wide variety of tools for guiding your own thinking.

Any additional comments?

Mr. Rumelt is an extremely smart person with a world of experience in strategic situations. He has an almost unique, scientific-like, ability to break down complex socio-economic issues into small and meaningful subsets which can be analyzed and acted upon without ever loosing the sight of the big picture. Mr. Rumelt gives hope that scientific approach, hypothesizing, and analytical work in general still have a say in the socio-economic context. A truly great book!

p.s. narrator is good too
