Return to Book Page. Preview — The Strategist by Cynthia Montgomery. Based on an acclaimed professor’s legendary strategy course at Harvard Business School, The Strategist offers a radically new perspective on a leader’s most vital role. It’s not a question they anticipate or care much about on opening day. But by the time the program ends, they cannot imagine leading their companies to success without being—and living the role of—a strategist.

Over a series of weeks and months, Montgomery puts these accomplished executives through their paces. Using case discussions, after-hours talks, and participants’ own strategy dilemmas, she illuminates what strategy is, why it’s important, and what it takes to lead the effort.

En route, she equips them to confront the most essential question facing every business leader: Does this company truly matter?

In doing so, she shows that strategy is not just a tool for outwitting the competition; it is the most powerful means a leader has for shaping a company itself. The Strategist exposes all business leaders—whether they run a global enterprise or a small business—to the invaluable insights Montgomery shares with these privileged executives. By distilling the experiences and insights gleaned in the classroom, Montgomery helps leaders develop the skills and sensibilities they need to become strategists themselves.

It is a difficult role, but little else one does as a leader is likely to matter more. Hardcoverpages.

Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Sep 18, Grant Xavier Storer rated it it was ok Shelves: Good material, except I heard it better from “Start With Why”. This approach of finding your core identity and building your business on that basis was way too academic and not really that reader friendly.

Start With Why was probably the most influential book I’ve ever read, so reading it again in this version was very disappointing. This is the second time I read this book and it was worth it. The first time I was shifting careers from a day job in a big company to a family owned business.

At the time I felt that this book does give some important insights. Nearly 2 years down the line, I found the book does have practical aspects in it related to strategy and leadership alike. The author believes the two are inseparable. Being a strategist is not enough, you need to be the “strategist your company needs”, understanding the This is the second time I read this book and it was worth it.

The heart of all this is the purpose; why does your company exist? I thoroughly enjoyed the book and marked it as a reference that I will be going back to when crafting my own organizational strategy.

I highly recommend this book! View all 3 comments. Mar 11, Alex Timberman rated it really liked it Shelves: Cynthia Montgomery is a professor at the Harvard Business School. She is influenced by another professor there, Michael Porter, and his work on strategy and the 5 forces.

This book is a short read on what strategy is about and on who is responsible for making the strategy: There is nothing technical or fancy here or even remarkable like say Blue Ocean Strategy but she does a good job of clearly laying out the basics: A purpose is different from the mission statement in that every part of the firm through its value chain is affected by it.

From the very top, a purpose is formed, and everything and every part in the firm should revolve around that purpose, except when times call for a change in purpose. I found this book a good read to ground me back into the basics on what leadership and strategy is all about.

Oct 14, John Seno rated it it was amazing. Overtime I’ve come to the realization that an exceptional business or any enterprise is built around a profound purpose.

Traditional strategy cybthia like SWOT analysis or Porter’s five forces are essential but on their own they cannot carry the weight of an enterprise. For that we turn to the vision, to the strategists, to the one’s who live strategy and accept it as an Unending way of life.

A good purpose is ennobling, put the stake in the ground do this and not thatand cyntiha the firm distinct. Second, it looks like Montgomery is influenced by another HBS professor, Michael Porter with his 5 competitive forces.

She gives examples of Warren Buffet and Jack Welch. Third, the classic yet the most important part that she emphasis in this book: Yet, rarely can strategy be so neatly contained.

Rather, the key lesson for this book is, as the title suggests, an explanation of what it is to be a strategist. With a nice balance of theory and practical advice the book provides a good introduction to the idea of strategy while ensuring that readers realize that strategy and strategizing are dynamic processes that necessarily involve change.
