Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Why do some companies fail to adapt to change, while others thrive on change, disruption and discontinuity? Good question - and extremely relevant, because in today's constantly shifting business environment, if you can't adjust to change, you're doomed. This book shows you how to develop strategic agility in your business, so that your strategy is always up-to-speed and you stay ahead of your competitors.


"One of those rare managerial books that is rigorous as well as relevant."
—Michael L. Tushman, Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School

"Yves Doz and Mikko Kosonen provide tremendous insight into one of the most relevant issues in business today. "
—Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, President and CEO, Nokia

"It has long been a dilemma - how do companies reinvent themselves? The Fast Strategy findings are an important contribution - being attentive to the evolving environment and developing the capacity within a leadership team for 'collective commitment' resonates powerfully with my own experience. A thought-provoking contribution for those seeking to renew their own business."
—Vivienne Cox, Executive Vice President, BP

"I found their treatment of the subject very useful."
—Craig Mundie, Chief Research and Strategy Officer, Microsoft
