By bringing together a number of distinctive investigations of strategy practice, this book will enrich our understanding of the dynamic process through which organizational strategies are created and executed.
Practising strategy will be an invaluable text for postgraduate students of strategy, strategic management and related modules.
' A very interesting, absorbing and well-considered book that explores a subject often overlooked: that strategy must be executed and thus evolves in practice.'
'This book makes an important contribution by adopting a new stance of strategy as practice. It has a good mix of theory and practice and an excellent range of case studies.'
'This is a first: an academically rigorous textbook on the practicalities of strategizing. It will be a vital resource to all teachers and students interested in Strategy-as-Practice'

'Over the last decade, Strategy-as-Practice has emerged as a distinctive approach to studying strategy. By treating strategy as something that people do rather than something that firms in their markets have, it has revolutionized our understanding of this important area of management. With this textbook we now have an important resource that will help teaching this approach in the classroom. The book provides a step-by-step introduction to Strategy-as-Practice, a discussion of its main components and several exciting case studies. I am sure that both students and teachers will find the book of great value'

Chair of Organization and Management, University of Zurich
'This is an outstanding strategy text that takes strategists and their work seriously. Students, practitioners and scholars who seek to understand the micro-levels of strategy including practitioners, practices and praxis will find this an invaluable reading'
Associate Professor, Stockholm School of Economics
'This book is a welcome addition to the field of Strategic management. The case studies are original and really help to render the Strategy as Practice perspective accessible to practitioners and students alike'
Professor of Management, Monash University, Australia
'The authors of this book have distilled the core messages of strategy-as-practice into a series of easy-to-read and easy-to-apply chapters. It has done well to retain sufficient sophistication for an academic audience, drawing on recent studies and explaining theoretical ideas, while also ensuring accessibility by presenting them in a format that is comprehensible for practitioners and students without prior knowledge in this area'
A new breed of strategy textbook is emerging which takes a more philosophical, sociological and practice-based approach. This is very refreshing.
