This leading strategy text presents the complexities of strategic management through up-to-date scholarship and hands-on applications. Authors Charles Hill and Gareth Jones--both highly regarded in the management field--integrate cutting-edge research, rising trends in strategy, and hot topics such as corporate performance, governance, strategic leadership, technology, and business ethics through both theory and cases. Most of the chapter-opening and chapter-closing cases are new, and the authors have either replaced or substantially revised all Strategy in Action boxes. The Seventh Edition also contains a new Running Case on Wal-Mart, introducing relevant aspects of the company's strategy and performance to reinforce the practical application of key concepts and to illustrate how successive chapter topics tie together. In addition to numerous examples and hands-on activities, several new technology resources support instructors and enhance the learning experience for students. This edition features a total of 35 high-quality cases covering small, medium, and large companies (domestic and international). Some of the companies and industries highlighted include Toyota, GM, Satellite Radio (XM vs. Sirius), the music industry, Staples, Charles Schwab, and Hewlett Packard. New!
