The Strategy Institute recommends the following books:

  • Playing To Win – How Strategy Really Works, A. G. Lafley & Roger L. Martin (Harvard Business Review Press)

(TSI comment: Quite possibly the best book ever written on strategy. Two leading business thinkers get to the heart of strategy – explaining what its for, how to think about it, why you it, and how to get it done. And they use one of the most successful  corporate turnarounds of the last century, which they achieved together, to prove their point. A must read for any business owner or leader seeking a playbook for predictable and repeatable future success.)

  • The 4 Disciplines Of Execution, Chris McChesney, Sean Covey and Jim Huling (Simon & Schuster)

(TSI comment: This book tells you everything you need to know to make your wildly important goals a reality. It uses a simple but effective model that is easy to understand, easy to apply, and delivers results. If you’re looking for a way to create focus on the things that matter within your team(s), then 4DX tells you everything you need to know.)
