From the New York Times bestselling author on strategy
Technobody—maker of wearable technologies—is under attack. Its strategic plan is slowly being killed by the top 20 strategy challenges (villains) every company faces: bad meetings (Meeting Menace), fire drills (Fire Driller), silos (Silo-Clops), and too many priorities (Dr. Yes). They are members of the Anti-Strategy Squad, a gang whose mission is to cause mass strategycide and global bankruption. But Technobody will not fail without a fight. Led by its fearless managers and three superheroes—StrategyMan, Innovatara, and Purposeidon—they will summon all of its strategic thinking powers to wage one final war against bad strategy and save its plan.
