Playing to Win: How Strategy Really Works

Practical. Any executive who struggles with strategy should read a practical book by A.G. Lafley and Roger L. Martin titled, Playing to Win: How Strategy Really Works. Lafley spent the bulk of his career at Proctor and Gamble, and Martin assisted him as a consultant. They led the implementation of many of the theories on strategy developed by Harvard’s Michael Porter. In this book, they offer plain speaking about hard thinking, and use their experience to present their view on the do’s and don’ts when it comes to strategy. They provide great examples, and most executives will finish this book with a few very useful and practical ways to improve strategy in their own workplaces.
