by Goodstien, Leonard

Choice Copyright American Library Association, used with permission. 9780070240209 Goodstein, Nolan, and Pfeiffer draw from their extensive consulting experiences to provide this practical guide which is designed to assist organizations in identifying, systematizing, and implementing effective long-term strategies. The volume successfully addresses the integration of business and functional plans, performance audits, organizational culture analysis, gap analysis, and values clarification. Additionally, environmental scanning, mission formulation, action plans integration, and contingency planning are addressed. The authors offer a straightforward, comprehensive guide to actually doing applied strategic planning through pragmatic aids such as models and a checklist which deal with every significant aspect of the planning process. The 15 chapters contain numerous anecdotes, charts, diagrams, and cartoons to illustrate the concepts needed to implement effective step-by-step strategic planning. Although written primarily for managers and consultants, academicians and advanced undergraduate and graduate students will find the book useful. J. W. Leonard; Miami University
