Listening to this on the move didn't work very well for me. This content may be better than it came across in audio format or if at a desk and able to make notes/mindmap. I found the narrative and the narration too lifeless and not a patch on the Project Management text in this series.
I am new to the world of strategy and wanted something I could listen to while I was out walking that would supplement my reading. For me this was excellent book. Stuart McLoughlin does an very good job with the narration. The book describes the principles of developing stratgy through six stages in a way that is easy to listen to and follow. There are good examples throughout. There is even a website so that you can follow the process and use some of the tools described. My only criticism would be that it seems to be that having spent a long time analysing the envirnment and option analysis it seems to skip through deciding on the options quite quickly. Otherwise I can't recommend it highly enough
Well written and set out; insightful with great quotes, examples and further reading recommendations.
Can forgive the 'yawn factor' to some extent as it's more of a text book than a reading/listening-for-pleasure book.
