內容簡介


第一本讓歐洲首席經濟學家欲罷不能、愛不釋手的策略書

入圍金融時報與高盛集團「年度最佳商業書獎」決選名單

策略的好壞決定了企業的成敗,不幸的是,好策略並不常見。發展與執行策略雖是領導人的首要任務,領導人卻時常誤把願景、業績目標、獲利率、市占率、甚至華麗空洞的口號當成「策略」。

皇冠製罐以「購併策略」迅速擴張,8年內成為全球最大的容器製商,公司股價、股東收益率和資本報酬率卻大幅滑落,「購併策略」為何無法帶來價值?

面對成屋銷售和房價漲勢皆停滯的情勢,雷曼兄弟以「市占率策略」因應,接受競爭對手拒絕的高風險貸款申請,不僅造成這家歷史悠久的投資銀行徹底垮台,還引發一場波及全球的金融災難。這個策略出了什麼問題?美國的沙漠風暴行動成功擊退了入侵科威特的伊拉克軍隊,美軍採用的「包圍策略」出自軍方出版的《作戰綱要》手冊,一般人花25美元便能買到,這算是好策略嗎?3D繪圖晶片設計廠商輝達,如何在短短幾年內迅速竄升,超越英特爾等大公司,獲《富比士》雜誌評選為年度最佳企業,它又採取了哪些策略?

「策略大師中的大師」魯梅特教授指出,真正的好策略是針對企業所處情勢的「問題」或「挑戰」,清楚而明智的思考。他分析「好策略」的三大核心要素、「壞策略」的四大特徵,及好策略的九大力量來源。結合他多年來對經濟、金融、科技、歷史、人類性格的觀察、教學與顧問實務,誠實地面對並探究表象底下的種種艱難問題。

本書從商業、非營利機構和軍事等領域列舉許多精采案例,包括:蘋果、沃爾瑪、輝達、矽圖、蓋堤基金會、思科系統、通用汽車、帕卡重型卡車、登月計畫、教育改革、伊拉克戰爭、阿富汗戰爭,及金融危機等,剖析好策略與壞策略從原始構想、進展、結果的過程。

除了極具深度與廣度的案例,魯梅特教授更揭示「策略家的思考術」,運用各種工具引導你深入了解情勢的本質和隱藏的力量,培養出擘畫好策略所需的洞察力。


Even though everyone is talking about it, there is no concept in business today more muddled than 'strategy'. Richard Rumelt, described by McKinsey Quarterly as 'a giant in the field of strategy' and 'strategy's strategist', tackles this problem head-on in a jargon-free explanation of how to develop and take action on strategy, in business, politics and beyond.

Rumelt dispels popular misconceptions about strategy - such as confusing it with ambitions, visions or financial goals - by very practically showing that a good strategy focuses on the challenges a business faces, and providing an insightful new approach for overcoming them. His sharp analysis and his brilliant, bold style make his book stand out from its competitors (something that Rumelt himself says is crucial).

Rumelt has always challenged dominant thinking, ever since, in 1972, he was the first person to uncover a statistical link between corporate strategy and profitability - and this is his long-awaited tour de force.
