The premise of the book is to provide insight into new ways through which corporations create and execute strategies. It is the result of a 24-hour intensive workshop that brought together over twenty strategy practitioners from multiple industries. They were asked to consider the proposition that strategy is shifting from a product of an elite group of people within the firm to a process that aggregates strategic thinking from all levels of the firm.
