Principles of Strategy: Advanced

  • Jeremy David Curuksu
Part of the Management for Professionals book series (MANAGPROF)


In this final chapter, on the topic of advanced strategies, a selection of topics is discussed through essays across the functional (Sect. 9.1), business (Sect. 9.2) and corporate (Sect. 9.3) strategies. As noted earlier, the merit of defining these three categories is purely pedagogic: developing a strategy should always involve holistic approaches that appreciate the many potential interactions and intricacies within and beyond the proposed set of activities.
