A review and synthesis of the academic and managerial literature on strategic innovation.
Strategy as practiced by companies today has many flaws. "Reshaping Strategy" offers a new perspective, new tools and ideas on how to address strategic issues for enabling new growth by developing fresh answers to the classic questions in strategy: what business are you in, who is your customer, and how to organize to fulfill customers' needs?
The book features three main parts:

- Part 2 gives a definition, as well as a detailed description of the content, process and context of strategic innovation. Furthermore it offers tools for assessing the innovativeness of strategies and a framework for thinking through the various issues involved in strategic innovation.
- Part 3 focuses on managerial implications.
Each chapter contains not only practical advice on how to develop innovative strategies, but offers summaries, along with trigger questions to gain new insights and help challenge managers' and companies' mental models.
