You think you have a winning strategy. But do you? Executives are bombarded with bestselling ideas and best practices for achieving competitive advantage, but many of these ideas and practices contradict each other. Should you aim to be big or fast? Should you create a blue ocean, be adaptive, play to win--or forget about a sustainable competitive advantage altogether? In a business environment that is changing faster and becoming more uncertain and complex almost by the day, it's never been more important--or more difficult--to choose the right approach to strategy. In this book, The Boston Consulting Group's Martin Reeves, Knut Haanaes, and Janmejaya Sinha offer a proven method to determine the strategy approach that is best for your company. They start by helping you assess your business environment--how unpredictable it is, how much power you have to change it, and how harsh it is--a critical component of getting strategy right. They show how existing strategy approaches sort into five categories--Be Big, Be Fast, Be First, Be the Orchestrator, or simply Be Viable--depending on the extent of predictability, malleability, and harshness.
In-depth explanations of each of these approaches will provide critical insight to help you match your approach to strategy to your environment, determine when and how to execute each one, and avoid a potentially fatal mismatch. Addressing your most pressing strategic challenges, you'll be able to answer questions such as: * What replaces planning when the annual cycle is obsolete? * When can we--and when should we--shape the game to our advantage? * How do we simultaneously implement different strategic approaches for different business units? * How do we manage the inherent contradictions in formulating and executing different strategies across multiple businesses and geographies? Until now, no book brings it all together and offers a practical tool for understanding which strategic approach to apply. Get started today.

About Martin Reeves

Martin Reeves is a Senior Partner and Managing Director in BCG's New York office and leads the Bruce Henderson Institute, BCG's vehicle for research and translation of ideas from beyond the world of business, into impactful frameworks and tools for strategy.

He is the author of the forthcoming book "Your Strategy Needs a Strategy" (Harvard Business Review Press, June 2015), which offers the strategy palette as a tool to enable business leaders to tune their approach to strategy to their strategic environment - an increasingly challenging task as large corporations find themselves stretched across an increasing diversity of environments which change faster and less predictably.

Other recent research themes include self-tuning organizations, corporate durability, commoditization, strategy and sustainability, new bases of competitive advantage, the economics of trust and sustainability, adaptive strategy, as well as managerial heuristics.

Martin joined BCG in London in 1989 and later moved to Tokyo, where he led the Japan health care practice for eight years and was responsible for BCG's business with global clients. He has led numerous strategy and organizational assignments both for individual companies and industry associations.
