Strategy and the Business Landscape, 3rd Edition, Pankaj E. Ghemawat

From the Back Cover

Strategy and the Business Landscape: Core Concepts offers a contemporary yet historically grounded perspective on the field of strategy. Pankaj Ghemawat in association with David. J. Collins, Jan W. Rivkin, and Gary P. Pisano, provides firm-centered and value-based logic to bridge some of the great debates about strategy today. Always practical, while still rigorous, key concepts are laid out succinctly and illustrated with rich examples, often drawn from the author team's rich professional experience.

This text represents the core concepts of Harvard's required Competition and Strategy course offered at the Harvard Business School.

About the Author

Pankaj Ghemawat is the Jaime and Josefina Chua Tiampo Professor of Business Administration at Harvard University's Graduate School of Business Administration and Head of the Strategy Unit. He received his Ph.D. in Business Economics from Harvard University, he worked as a consultant with McKinsey & Company in London during 1982 and 1983, and has taught at the Harvard Business School since then. In 1991, he was appointed the youngest full professor in the Business School's history. One strand of his research and teaching focuses on the dynamics of globalization and generic strategies for international firms. Another strand of his work is concerned with foundational issues in business strategy, particularly work on the topics of competitive dynamics, business scope, and complexity.

Professor Ghemawat's publications include Commitment (Free Press, 1991), Games Businesses Play (MIT Press, 1997), and Strategy and the Business Landscape (Addison Wesley Longman, 1999), as well as several dozen articles and case studies. He serves on the editorial boards of Management Science, Journal of International Business Studies, the Journal of Economics and Management Strategy, LongRange Planning, the Strategic Management Journal, and Strategic Organization.

Pankaj Ghemawat is the Anselmo Rubiralta Professor of Global Strategy at IESE Business School. Between 1983 and 2006, he served on the faculty at the Harvard Business School where, in 1991, he became the youngest person in the school's history to be appointed a full professor. And before that, he earned his A.B. degree in Applied Mathematics and his Ph.D. in Business Economics from Harvard.

Ghemawat was also the youngest "guru" included in the guide to the greatest management thinkers of all time published in 2008 by The Economist. His books include Commitment, Games Businesses Play, Strategy and the Business Landscape and the award-winning Redefining Global Strategy, which The New York Times called " a nicely revised picture of globalization as regionalization."

He is the author of more than 100 research articles and case studies, ranks as one of the world's best-selling authors of teaching cases, and has been elected a fellow of the Academy of International Business and of the Strategic Management Society. Other recent honors include the McKinsey Award for the best article published in the Harvard Business Review and the Irwin Award for the Educator of the Year from the Business Policy and Strategy division of the Academy of Management.

Ghemawat is active in helping companies, governments, multilateral institutions, and business schools better understand and address international opportunities and challenges. He consults on strategy and leadership development around the world and is a regular speaker on globalization-related topics. He also served on the taskforce appointed by the AACSB, the U.S.-based accreditation body for business schools, on the Globalization of Management Education, and authored the report's recommendations concerning what to teach about globalization, and how.
