Economic Foundations of Strategy
- Joseph T. Mahoney - University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA
Economics (General) | Organizational Theory | Strategic Management
Excellent book, but not enough to be a textbook for the whole course.
The book offers a comprehensive review of contemporary theories of the firm. As it is suitable for the comparison of the governance versus the competence perspective in strategic management, we will add it to our course reading list.
A superb theoretical overview of business foundations. Best in its class. Of great value for MA level, esp. seminar work.
Rather not suitable for BA level classes.
It condenses current thought and research in the area of strategy. Not too many books available for PhD students. This book does a great job at fulfilling this need.
A well written text on economic strategy.
