Lorange's contribution to the strategy debate has been his work on implementing strategy within an organization. "Strategic Planning and Control" draws together, for the first time, Lorange's work from over 20 years of research and consultancy. The book is divided into four main sections, each prefaced by an introductory chapter, covering the importance of owning strategy within the organization; developing the decision-making process; developing managers to become strategists; controlling the strategic process. Lorange attempts to show that implementing effective planning and control is a vitally important aspect of strategy. Examples are used to demonstrate how it can be achieved. The book should be of interest to strategic planners, university and business school libraries, MBA students, academics and researchers in strategy.
