The inability to set good strategy can sink a company and a leader's career. A recent Wall Street Journal study revealed that the most sought after executive skill is strategic thinking, but only three out of ten managers have this skill set.

Author Rich Horwath explains the three keys to strategic thinking, breaks them down into simple, attainable skills, and gives you practical tools to apply them every day, providing managers with a clear path to mastery of the three disciplines:

  • Acumen--generate critical insights through a step-by-step evaluation of your business and its environment
  • Allocation--focus your limited resources through strategic trade-offs 
  • Action--implement a system to guarantee effective execution of strategy at all levels of your organization

Based on new research with senior executives from 150 companies and the author's experience as a thought-leading strategist, Deep Dive is the first book to focus on the most important level of strategy-you. Armed with this knowledge and dozens of effective tools, you can become a truly strategic leader for your organization.
