InAhead of the Curve, two renowned experts on business analysis and strategy bring together the proven tools you need to get results. Unlike many other books in the field,Ahead of the Curveis written in plain English: it teaches you precisely what you need to know, without requiring you to master overly complex concepts or mathematics.

The book also guides you through analyzing global social and political challenges, including political risk analysis, long-term scenario planning; and emerging macro-environmental ("STEEP/PEST") techniques. For each form of analysis, the authors present clear descriptions, context, rationales, strengths, weaknesses, step-by-step instructions, and case study examples. The result: a book you can rely on to meet your strategic challenges, and address your business challenges, whatever your role, industry, or environment.
