Playing to Win: How Strategy Really Works

Video Description

When companies don’t win in the marketplace, it is often because they don’t have a strategy. Strategy is about winning and winning is about making clear choices about where and how to play. In Playing to Win: How Strategy Really Works, Roger Martin and his co-author, A.G. Lafley, CEO of Procter & Gamble, explained what strategy is for (winning) and what it’s about (choice). They laid out how organizations large and small can guide everyday action with larger strategic goals—to win rather than simply play. In this Harvard Business Review webinar Martin will share key insights from Playing to Win and also from the new Playing to Win Strategy Toolkit which helps leaders implement the Playing to Win framework in their organization. He provides real-world examples of companies that have developed and executed winning strategies. He also explains how anyone in business can win with the right approach to thinking hard.
