Great introduction to the best strategy methods

This book provides a good overview and introduction to the most important tools, methods, concepts etc. within strategy, and business strategy in particular. And with enough detail on each to be useful.

It's too easy to overload new employees with reading material, so it's good to have a single book that delves into moderate detail on each of the top 10 areas of strategy development, rather than waste time on outdated or less relevant topics, or excessive detail or examples.

While I would also recommend many people to read The Pyramid Principle, Learn Start-up etc. it's a better starting point for most people to get a larger overview, and moderate detail, with a book like this.

Boring!

some books don't work in an audible environment. This is one of them! downloading an 80 page pdf to go alongside doesn't work.
