"A refreshingly critical perspective on the origins of strategic competence.

(Professor Kathleen Sutcliffe, University of Michigan Business School)

"Scholars and managers alike will find there is much to learn from this comprehensive discussion of how managerial and organization cognition and emotions shape the process of strategic management. The analysis provided in "The Competent Organization" is the first comprehensive treatment of a newly emerging field of study that uses established psychological and social principles to understand and begin to improve the processes of strategy formulation, strategy implementation, and organizational learning.
