Thompson and Strickland's, Strategic Management, has always included the most recent research in strategy in a way that students can understand and apply it to business cases and problems. In addition, Thompson offers more coverage of strategy implementation than most other texts, which many instructors think is critical if students are to understand the “how” and not just the “what” and “why”. Thompson’s coverage of Michael Porter’s classic 5-forces model is clearer and more detailed than in other texts, according to reviewers. With this edition the market leader looks better than ever before, offering a new 4-color design, improved writing style, and two new chapters on global and e-commerce strategy. The Thompson and Strickland cases have always been another strong selling point. Over the years, this author team has developed a great network of case authors and is able to select from the cream of the crop. And, having taught the course themselves for many years, they are very experienced in selecting the types of cases that will spark student interest and generate lively classroom discussions. Many of the cases reflect high profile companies, products, and people that students will have heard of, know about from personal experience, or can easily identify with. The new case line-up features an exciting collection of dot.com/New Economy companies. Cases are further selected to highlight other critical types of business and trends, such as non-U.S. companies, globalization, cross-cultural situations, relatively small, entrepreneurial firms, non-profit organizations, and more.

The 18th edition of Crafting and Executing Strategy represents one of our most important and thoroughgoing revisions ever. The newest member of the author team, Margie Peteraf, led a thorough re-examination of every paragraph on every page of the 17th edition chapters. The overriding objectives were to inject new perspectives and the best academic thinking, strengthen linkages to the latest research findings, modify the coverage and exposition as needed to ensure squarely on-target content, and give every chapter a major facelift. While this 18th edition retains the same 12-chapter structure of the prior edition, every chapter has been totally refreshed. And the chapter content continues to be solidly mainstream and balanced, mirroring both the best academic thinking and the pragmatism of real-world strategic management. An attractive collection of 20 relevant, readable, and recent readings that amplify important topics in managing a company's strategy-making, strategy-executing process is included in this Concepts and Readings version to provide students with a taste of the literature of strategic management before tackling cases or simulation projects.

The distinguishing mark of the 19th edition is its enriched and enlivened presentation of the material in each of the 12 chapters, providing an as up-to-date and engrossing discussion of the core concepts and analytical tools as you will find anywhere. There is an accompanying line-up of exciting new cases that bring the content to life and are sure to provoke interesting classroom discussions, deepening students’ understanding of the material in the process. While this 19th edition retains the 12-chapter structure of the prior edition, every chapter –indeed every paragraph and every line – has been re-examined, refined, and refreshed. New content has been added to keep the material in line with the latest developments in the theory and practice of strategic management. In other areas, coverage has been trimmed to keep the book at a more manageable size. Scores of new examples have been added, along with 16 new Illustration Capsules, to enrich understanding of the content and to provide students with a ringside view of strategy in action. The result is a text that cuts straight to the chase in terms of what students really need to know and gives instructors a leg up on teaching that material effectively. It remains, as always, solidly mainstream and balanced, mirroring both the penetrating insight of academic thought and the pragmatism of real-world strategic management. Thompson 19e, your best case scenario!
