What are the core principles of strategic thinking historically? And how do these translate into modern times?
These are the questions addressed by the contributors in this Convoco mini-edition. Saul David's article examines the ideas of the father of modern strategy, Carl von Clausewitz. His discussion connects the historic element of strategy with modern-day international politics, drawing insightful parallels while pointing out the misinterpretations of a great strategic mind. In her contribution, Corinne M. Flick draws on a number of thinkers and writers to show the relevance of strategic thinking in our lives, arguing it to be an essential means of facing the uncertainty of today's world, wherever we are-in a boardroom, in a corporate or financial setting, or in everyday decision-making.
Persuasive and informative, Why Strategy Matters offers an illuminating insight into how strategy is relevant today.
