Publisher's Summary

Some say business strategy is 50 percent art and 50 percent science. The truth is probably closer to 65 percent art and 35 percent science, but the science of strategy remains critical. While art must be developed from within, science can be taught - and it forms the foundation of any business strategy.

In The Strategy Mindset, strategy consultant, author, and internationally renowned speaker, Dr. Chuck Bamford, provides a simple yet practical guide to creating corporate strategy using well researched and battle-tested approaches.

This is not a cumbersome textbook filled with academic language. Nor is it a reworking of popular strategy ideas that are useless in practice. Instead, The Strategy Mindset provides actionable applications of strategic thinking tailored to the realities of business.

Dr. Bamford has refined this approach to make it a practical and efficient model for the design and implementation of strategy. Although mastery of these approaches takes time, a motivated management team can effectively implement them and see a profound impact on their company.

Practice the art of strategy...but master the science first.

Excellent, Succinct and Practical

With myriad options, styles and theories out there on Strategic Planning, this book was recommended to me by a valued and respected colleague as I was leaning toward completing a SWOT analysis at the 20 year mark of my company. I was loathing it. Honestly. How refreshing to read that Chuck Bamford teaches what I’ve believed for many years: SWOT is NOT an analysis tool nor is it a strategy! YES! I could get into this guy. This is a short read with golden nuggets you can immediately put into practice.
Highly, highly recommended! PS the ‘performer’ is the perfect voice for the subject matter.

A very practical book on implementing Strategy

Found this book very useful in mastering the concepts of strategy implementation. It clearly distinguishes between what works and what doesn’t with real live examples. The concepts in this book are something we can take and apply the very next day. Best part, it does not try to be politically correct and puts things as they are.
