Maximillian Heimstdt, Weizenbaum Institute Opening Strategy is a masterful demonstration for how a frugal choice and rigorous application of theoretical concepts turn a historical narrative into a more generalized argument about practive change in professional fields.
William Ocasio, Northwestern University Opening Strategy is a remarkable achievement. It's a rich, entertaining history that convincingly shows how corporate strategists and management consultants together made, transformed, and continue to transform strategy from its fragile beginnings in the mid-twentieth century to the established professional field it is today. Its a new standard for institutional approaches to strategy-as-practice. It goes beyond history and provides a trenchant analysis of
the opportunities and challenges now facing strategy practitioners.
Martin Reeves, Director of the BCG Henderson Institute There are many books on the ideas and tools of strategy, a few on the history of those ideas and the individuals who created them, but this is the first on the profession of Strategy and the forces which shaped its development. It will be of great interest to practitioners and scholars alike in putting their work in a historical and social context.
Paula Jarzabkowski, Cass Business School, City, University of London This is an important and much-needed book for both practitioners and academics. It sets the Strategy profession and the practices involved within their historical context, showing how they have evolved into what we now take for granted. The book is a most enjoyable read, with interesting and thought-provoking cases and characters. It challenges us to see and understand the Strategy profession differently and I believe it will become a key text for our field.
Robert Burgelman, University of Sanford Opening Strategy is a milestone in the study of the century-old effort to professionalize management. Using a history cum sociology lens, Whittington documents and explains the triumphs and tribulations of Strategys trajectory as a profession since 1960 to today. The book will serve as a valuable reference to all strategy practitioners and researchers.
