Book Overview

Get to better, more effective strategy.

In nearly every business segment and corner of the world economy, the most successful companies dramatically outperform their rivals. What is their secret? In Better, Simpler Strategy, Harvard Business School professor Felix Oberholzer-Gee shows how these companies achieve more by doing less. At a time when rapid technological change and global competition conspire to upend traditional ways of doing business, these companies pursue radically simplified strategies. At a time when many managers struggle not to drown in vast seas of projects and initiatives, these businesses follow simple rules that help them select the few ideas that truly make a difference.

Better, Simpler Strategy provides readers with a simple tool, the value stick, which every organization can use to make its strategy more effective and easier to execute. Based on proven financial mechanics, the value stick helps executives decide where to focus their attention and how to deepen the competitive advantage of their business.

How does the value stick work? It provides a way of measuring the two fundamental forces that lead to value creation and increased financial success—the customer's willingness-to-pay and the employee's willingness-to-sell their services to the business.

   The only book you ever need to read on strategy
I wish this book was sooner available ''. With so much already said about strategy through books and research, one would wonder what another book can say? If we read only the Better, simpler strategy as the first book, we can focus on what really constitutes strategy for large and small organizations.

Its main success is making everyone realize that value creation not only provides shareholders with benefits, but can catalyze the evolution of capitalism into a more inclusive societal system.

   Great as a text book or business book
The Better Simpler Strategy is a terrific book. It describes how a variety of companies can simplify the design of their corporate strategies by focusing on value levers that influence the willingness-to-pay. It is neither dense nor verbose, and long-winding. I am sure that the book will have a tremendous impact in corporate boardrooms and among senior executives who take time to distill its principles. I think it can be read in a course on strategy, replacing business textbooks or for long and dense people to learn and apply the frameworks. On the more desirable side, a few in-depth examples of applications in companies would have made the book even better. In my experience, the application of even the most solid business frameworks is an art and typical pitfalls are common.

   Disappointing publication from Harvard Business School
I was quite disappointed '' with this book. Here there is really no original content. The concepts are not generalized and are to be applied in a strategy setting. There is a limit on how much you can simplify the strategic theory before losing its value. Sadly, this is what happened with this book.
