Well done for the effort and commitment to get this book out! It is always great to read a book done by friends and get refreshed. I am sure other readers will find the same excitement as me. This book comes also to address a gap in strategy on issues relating to the current environment of VUCA and beyond; coming of Gen Z to the work place, the era of alternative reality, fake news and social media, the emergence of China and the Silk Road strategy, Covid and other health issues, and the emergence of Africa post-colonial and its young people in an era of broad bandwidth and the internet. The book is simple enough to lay readers and challenging enough to the discerning strategist.

The book Optimizing Strategy for Results distills essential steps and a roadmap for the business strategy development process, expressed with clarity, inspiring and beautifully delineated complexity, to provoke a strategic mindset in illustratively cinematic terms. The authors brilliantly simplify strategy in precise, unsentimental prose for any category of business.
In our VUCA environment and within this era of entrepreneurial leadership, the authors present the requisite agile nature that modern organizations need when approaching strategy. Identifying strategic thinking, strategic intelligence, execution, and learning as a culture that needs to permeate the entire organization’s thinking. This is a must-read and reference for every leader in any modern organization.

Optimizing Strategy for Results offers a thorough, analytical assessment of the process of strategic planning. The book is divided into three segments – preparation, creating strategy and optimizing strategy – which allows a systematic approach for applying strategic planning in your organization. Each chapter ends with segments on taking action and key takeaways, which provides you with triggers to integrate these academic concepts into your planning process.
The reason many strategies fail is because they are fossilized – stuck in the time they were made, left behind by the emerging realities that shatter the assumptions they were based on. Indeed, strategies fail because they are also divorced from the reality on the ground of the prevailing organizational culture and talent mix that could energize or kill that strategy. In this book, the authors bring strategy to life, presenting it as a dynamic concept in constant dialogue with the changing environment and with the people who need to understand, own, and carry out that strategy. By emphasizing the need to constantly communicate with stakeholders and learn from the emerging issues of the day, the authors have given strategists their greatest chance yet at success.
