Strategy for You: Using the Principles
of Strategy to Achieve Success
Strategy is the foundation of success in business. Strategy creates the bridge from where you are today to where you want to go. But, very few people know what strategy is and how to effectively use it. As a former chief strategy officer and professor of management, Rich Horwath provides a five-step plan for using the foundational principles of strategy for success.

Using real-world examples from business, sports and entertainment, Rich provides audiences with an understanding of what strategy is and how to use it. The result is the power to get from where you are today to where you want to go—the power to live strategically.

RICH HORWATH is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today best-selling author on strategy. His book, Deep Dive: The Proven Method for Building Strategy, has been described by the Director of Worldwide Operations for McDonalds as “…the most valuable book ever written on strategic thinking.”
