The Mind Of The Strategist: The Art of Japanese Business
This book, full of actual examples, aims to bring to life all of the dynamic, subtlety, and variety of business strategy as it is practiced in the real world and in real companies. The author does not purport to be inventing strategy in this book or to be revealing the secrets of Japanese business and strategic planning. Rather, he is exploring with the reader the ways in which the strategist must think, the key principles and thought patterns that real-world strategists have used to move their companies forward in Japan and throughout the world. He explores the relationship of the Strategic Triangle formed by the company, the customer, and the competition and shows how these factors must be the basis for all strategic thinking and planning.

As a new Management Trainee at Ind-Suzuki Limited at Hosure TN, I was given this book by my boss - Venu Srinivasan and I loved this so much that I really transformed in my thinking from IIM-A
This book is still very much relevant and should be part of any strategist. Thank you
I read this great book when it first reached the bookstore market in the 1980's. I have used this philosophy repeatedly and very effectively. I want to download it to my iPad for reference for the principles are timeless.
