In Learning to Think Strategically, Julia Sloan examines the relationship between strategic thinking and the continuous learning. The book is a primer on how to think strategically. It traces the history of strategy, differentiates strategic thinking from planning, describes the influence of culture, streamlines the roles of rationality and intuition and identifies the key ways of learning to think strategically. Julia Sloan asserts - based on her continuous-learning, teaching, research and consultancy experience - that learning can transform thinking strategically into sustainable competitive advantage. The book links strategic thinking with continuous communication, knowledge management and engagement. Through its examination of personality development and strategic decision-making it promotes selfanalysis and understanding. It is written clearly and organized systematically, with good indexing, a full bibliography and thorough notes to help the reader to a full understanding of the topic. The book is a complete solution to learning how to think strategically, both for individuals and organizations. It will be particularly valuable to chief learning officers, human-resource and organizational-development specialists, senior line managers and students of HR.
