Introducing a framework for strategy


Unit image

Strategy is messy. This unit demonstrates how the processes of analysing, choosing and implementing strategy, rather than being linear and rational as they first appear, are actually inter-related and iterative. Introduce into the mix the four pressures of industry dynamics, globalisation, risk and ethics, and the dynamics of strategy begin to emerge.

This OpenLearn course is an adapted extract from an Open University course BB835 The dynamics of strategy [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] .
