Strategy and leadership have become separated in the business world. Legendary Harvard Business School Professor Cynthia Montgomery reveals why and how they need to be re-integrated for ultimate business success. Cynthia Montgomery teaches the globally-renowned EOP (Entrepreneur, Owner, President) course at Harvard Business School, one of Harvard’s most oversubscribed executive courses. Participants are all seasoned executives, owners, CEOs, or COOs of privately held companies who pay tens of thousands of dollars to attend, with the goal of learning how to be more effective leaders and how to make their companies more successful.
Montgomery’s course teaches them a totally new way to understand leadership, a way that fuses leadership with strategy. Her approach calls for a reset of current thinking about both. She shows that strategy is not just a tool for outwitting the competition - it is the most powerful means a leader has for shaping a firm itself.Montgomery takes the listener through the paces of her world-renowned course, teaching them how to develop the skills and sensibilities that living strategy and real leadership demand. No other book marries strategy and leadership in the same way - a way listeners will find challenging, intriguing, and ultimately, inspiring.

The book and message is great. I wish it would have less examples on the same company and wish a variation of industries would be covered. However overall a great book with many take aways.
"The book is better than the robot reading it"
It sound so like a robot and therefore is easy to lose because it miss to engage in the narrative, but after all the book is great.
