Learn the Solutions to Your Top Strategy Challenges with Robert Simons, SEVEN STRATEGY QUESTIONS
Tune in to beyond-the-scope-of-the-book interviews with Nathan Ives, MBA, PMP on the StrategyDriven Podcast. In this interview, Nathan consults with Robert Simons on why asking the right questions is vital to a strategy’s effective execution.
“Successful business strategy lies not in having all the right answers, but rather in asking the right questions,” says Harvard Business School professor Robert Simons. “Business leaders can't develop and execute effective strategy without first gathering the right information.”
Nathan only selects titles that meet a stringent set of StrategyDriven requirements. First, the title must be aligned with the StrategyDriven mission of delivering best practice solutions to small- and medium-sized businesses, including strategic planning, decision making, leadership, management, and organizational performance. Secondly, the authors must be highly respected in their field of study.
StrategyDriven author interviews are uniquely different than the average book review. The primary difference, these podcasts are not simply book reviews or summaries. Nathan reads each book prior to the interview and questions the author for a deeper understanding of the important strategies discussed in the book and probes for examples of real-world implementation of those strategies. As a result, listeners get more information, including, author advice not contained within the book; offering additional value listeners can incorporate into their business model. Additionally, StrategyDriven interview articles contain quick links to supplementary materials provided by the author.
