How to Think Strategically - Talk from ESCP Europe Professor in Japan

ESCP Europe Professor Dr Davide Sola took the opportunity of teaching in Tokyo to offer alumni and guests a talk on the book he co-authored with fellow professor Dr Jerome Couturier: How to Think Strategically: your roadmap to innovation and results

The CCIFJ, the French Chamber of Commerce in Japan hosted the talk and a drinks reception, which was well attended on Wednesday 12th March 2014.

Dr Sola provided an overview of the key concepts behind strategic thinking, drawing on the theme of his successful business book and app 'How to Think Strategically', posing the question: some people seem to achieve the best results, again and again. Is it luck? Or is it strategy?  

"Strategy is everyone's business. It is impossible for a few senior executives, even very gifted ones, to know everything that is important about what is going on in an organisation and its environment, and all the lessons that are being learned, not just in R&D, but right across the operation," said Dr. Sola in his book.

Dr Sola was in Japan to run the second module of the Global Manager Programme 2014, dedicated to Strategy Management.
