Strategic Management A systems approach: Why are some organisations successful, while so many other businesses fail? Is it a question of luck?. They may have the right mix of products and/or services at the right time. But even if luck leads to success, it probably will not last. Most organisations that are highly successful over the long term effectively acquire, develop, and manage resources and capabilities that provide competitive advantages.High achieving organisations have also learned how to develop and manage relationships with a wide range of organisations, groups, and people that have a stake in their organisation.This book explores how organiations such as the South African Police Service can grow and prosper through successful execution of the strategic management process.
