Written by today's most prominent management scholars and award-winning instructors, Hitt/Ireland/Hoskisson's STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT: COMPETITIVENESS AND GLOBALIZATION, 13E provides an intellectually rich, yet practical, analysis of strategic management. The authors combine a classic industrial organization model with a resource-based view of the firm to clearly demonstrate how today's businesses establish competitive advantages and create value for stakeholders. Also included at no additional charge are 20 leading business cases, carefully selected by the authors, which cover several US and international businesses across many industries.
