Strategy as Practice heralds a defining moment in how strategic management is understood. Paula Jarzabkowski's book leads the way in setting out the meaning and implications of this new field. This book is the first of its kind to help readers bridge the gap between what managers actually do and organizational strategies. It provides an activity-based framework for studying strategy as practice, with empirical evidence to illustrate the dynamics of this framework in real terms. The book supports readers with:

- Definition of key terms
- The context in which strategy as practice has developed
- Clear concepts, frameworks and models for analyzing strategic activity

"This is a pioneering work. As the first book in the new strategy-as-practice field, it offers its readers both innovative models and exemplary field research. It should be a rich source of inspiration for future researchers in the field."
-- Richard Whittington, Said Business School, University of Oxford, U.K.

This book is indispensable reading for graduate students conducting research or doing courses on Strategy and Practice, Strategy Implementation or Strategy in Action as well as Advanced Issues in Strategy. This book will be a resource for both students and professionals alike.
