Patterns of Strategy makes a refreshing addition to the strategy literature. Aimed at decision makers and senior people who are the custodians of their organisations' strategies, it offers specific guidance in a world where choice can be daunting. It begins with a healthy de-bunking of some myths about strategy which have only served to limit peoples thinking - purely on this basis, it merits a strong recommendation. Dr Simon Haslam, Head of Strategy Faculty, Institute of Directors In helping us understand how we differentiate, Patterns of Strategy gives a different lens to intuitive decision making and problem solving. It is beautiful in its simplicity. David Atkinson, COO, Mindgym Patterns of Strategy is the first major new approach to strategy in a long time. Not re-packaged versions of existing ideas, but a completely new, and radically different, approach. The book offers descriptions of 80 common patterns of strategy in a 'recipe book' style, together with detailed advice on when, and how, to use them, and in what situations. It will be a "must have" for strategists. Paul Barnett, CEO, Strategic Management Bureau & Strategic Management Forum In a world of incessant change, unpredictability, and in a context where there are often multiple existing and potential players, the fundamental problem for organisational strategists is that it is unerringly complex. How then does 'Patterns of Strategy' fare against this background? The simple answer is very well. This is a novel and very significant contribution to the strategy literature. Prof. John Brocklesby, Head of School of Management, Victoria University of Wellington Here, at last, is the unified field theory of strategy. Patterns of Strategy takes the many influencers of organisational performance and coheres them into a systemic model. Ed Straw, Director PWC Global (Retd), author of Stand and Deliver Every now and then, a book comes along which seems to encompass the whole of a field, explain it, critique it, and surpass it. Patterns of Strategy does just that for the practice of organisational strategy. Once you have read Patterns, you can never go back. It combines a learned and enjoyable treatise with immensely practical usability and should be on every leader's desk, as a daily reference. Benjamin P Taylor, Chief Executive, Public Service Transformation Academy Patterns of Strategy is practical in its approach, yet deep in wisdom. It is a must read... a rare combination of depth in thinking and ease of use. 80 patterns are presented as recipes and as a way of further development of one's own thinking. Although some sound familiar - like First Mover, Fast Follower - some names are really original, like Knight's move, Piggyback, Rumplelstiltskin, Mouse, Jigsaw. These descriptions are thought provoking and act as a catalyst to ask different questions. The brief case descriptions made me aware of the invisible drivers of strategy that dictate where one will go unless one actually changes the nature and direction of the structural coupling. Patrick Hoverstadt and Lucy Loh have written a manual to guide business leaders to define their strategies in the twenty-first century. The book simplifies the subject, but does not oversimplify. It offers a uniquely systematic and sophisticated approach to the formulation of strategy for any business leader who wants to rethink their approach to strategy, embracing the complexity of the world of disruption, and considering both the opportunities in collaboration and in competition. There is much here that is fresh, and at the same time it is a brilliant synthesis of everything that is ever written about strategy. Anyone involved in the formation of strategy should read this book and think though how applying the building blocks creates a wide(r) range of possibilities. Jan De Visch, Executive Professor Entrepreneurial MBA, Flanders Business School, Catholic University of Leuven
Lucy Loh and Patrick Hoverstadt have 50 years' combined experience in developing systems thinking approaches to tackle complex, intractable management issues where traditional approaches consistently fail.
