Assuming an international perspective but written for an Australian and New Zealand audience, the text highlights how all organisations are affected by international issues, whether through suppliers, operations, competitors or customers. To provide a clear and practical application of theory, ten new case studies have been included in this edition to respond to the demand for them at this level of study in this discipline.
Additionally, the text allows a more theoretical perspective to be taken than is normally possible in strategy texts. This suits undergraduate courses where students have little practical experience and where conceptual principles are being developed. However, postgraduate students seeking a more conceptual understanding also find this emphasis valuable.
