The success of any strategic management process within an organization depends greatly on its ability to manage stakeholders. Stakeholders with competing expectations and demands are actively involved in the implementation of strategy, have a vested interest in the success or failure of organizations, and most importantly, can derail your strategic efforts.
As per its title, The Thinking Strategist promotes the strategic management process as a way to identify, explore and solve problems. It succinctly provides useful advice and practical tools to strengthen decision making and problem solving skills to accomplish organizational goals, exceed objectives, and to get top management and other key stakeholder support.

The book is designed to help develop the skills, confidence, business judgment, and resilience needed not only to be successful but to be a driver of decision making and problem solving. To be an expert - a thinking strategist.
