From the Paper:

"The business environment is becoming harder to decipher and predict as market forces and customer buying patterns undergo dizzying changes and competition toughens in all industries. With this situation, the widely shared belief that a clever manager can improvise and take off-the-cuff actions as the problems and threats to profitability come along will no longer do. Planning ahead is now the name of the game. Even the so-called reality shows on TV made out as spontaneous events are in fact heavily scripted. Recent studies show that organizations that plan their operations perform better than those that do not (Joyce & Woods). Academic research seems to show enough evidence that strategic management is valuable in today's business context. Another unmistakable sign of its growing importance is the increasing use of strategic management courses in business schools. The question is: Does it work in actual practice?"
