    This is a series of HBR articles that are not at all cohesive. There are internal contradictions throughout. None of the concepts are explored in any depth.

    Strategy is one of my favorite topics, so I really enjoyed these articles. These articles give a good overview of the strategic process and how to communicate a strategy within a company. It was a great reminder for me to focus on strategy at work. Thanks to Harvard Business Review Press & NetGalley for a copy in exchange for an honest review!

    Heavy on theory, light in practical applications Harvard content is often great and almost universally trusted. There are some helpful theories and frameworks in here, but I thought it was a bit too theoretical and I was looking for a layer or two more toward practical application.

    An assortment of quick-to-read articles from HBR. I found relevance and great insight in about 60% of them. A rood reference resource for business strategists who facilitate end-to-end strategy for their companies or clients.

    This compilation provided some intriguing frameworks for approaching strategy such as matching pairs of "where to play" & "How to win", or purpose-strategy-execution. Several pieces seemed jargony and filler-y.

    Listened to the book on Audible. It has, similar to other HBR guides, a collection of chapter written by different authors. Topics discussed were interesting and mostly to the point. The narrator of book was good.
