STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT (SIM336)

“A business enterprise guided by a clear sense of purpose rationally arrived at and emotionally ratified by commitment is more likely to have a successful outcome, in terms of profit and social good, than a company whose future is left to guesswork and chance.”
Andrews K., (1987) The concept of corporate strategy; cited in De Wit & Meyer,(2010) Strategy Process, Content, Context, an international perspective 4th Edition
