Want to know the secrets that enable start-ups to grow & scale into success stories like Amazon, Google, Apple and Tesla?

Want to see HOW the next wave of business success stories are using gamifcation to change the rules to win in the game of business?

ENTER >>> The Strategy Journey

A first of it’s kind, business strategy book with one goal in mind - to teach you how to win in today’s rapidly expanding digital world.
The ultimate on what-to-do and what-NOT-to-do guide on strategy.

It’s a map you can follow to transform your business and thrive in today’s hyper-connected, fast-paced marketplace.   It takes more than upgraded tech, or overhauling your marketing - your entire organisation must undergo a complete culture shift and become customer co-created, value-driven, and fully network integrated.

This book demystifies the different strategies used and gives you the complete guidance system and framework that any business (small or large) can implement.

This is not your usual boring, theory based, strategy book. This is a visual, hands-on guide that takes you on a journey of success and implementation.  It’s a mountain of books condensed into just one… and one that you’ll refer back to over and over again.

We cover real businesses, both in success and failure, to show you how you can beat the statistics and not only survive, but grow and thrive. Read about real examples of strategy in action through an amazing collection of case studies.


Welcome to the FUTURE of business…

 

The Strategy Journey is a comprehensive, full colour, illustrated How To guide that walks you through the five stage framework all businesses exist within.  

Using colourful design thinking templates you'll be able to quickly connect the dots, identify problems, and follow guided paths to solve any challenge.
This is your complete roadmap for success, covering the business lifecycle and appropriate strategy END TO END.  

The authors and collaborators are real people, who’ve held real positions with real companies from all over the world.  You could say they know a thing or 2 about business and strategy… and now they want to share their discoveries and unlock the secrets of successful businesses with YOU.

Learn from past failures...
The Strategy Journey examines 8 clear examples of why failure occurs.

Even large brands get things drastically wrong at times. In an in-depth case study, you'll learn why Lego got their approach to innovating and scaling/transforming all wrong and why Blockbuster and Kodak failed by focusing on scaling the wrong things, in the wrong areas. You'll discover why Sun Edison scaled in the wrong way, and why surgu, webvan, and everpix, all got scaling wrong too.

Success stories you can replicate…
The Strategy Journey takes a look at why some companies succeed, using stand out examples you can learn from Aristotle’s four pillars for a good life: Health, Wealth, Knowledge and Connectivity.

You'll find out how Facebook, Skype, Apple, and Amazon really did it, by learning the methods and approaches these mega-successful brands implemented.

And you'll understand why the key to successful digital transformation is a customer driven digital approach that draws on customer thinking, decisions, and behaviour.

The Strategy Journey will teach you how to use the same “co-creation” method Facebook, Skype, Apple, and Amazon took, so you can align your brand with your customers and drive sustainable growth.

There are many more examples, each covering the specific digital strategies used by successful businesses including Vitality, Harvard Business School, Udacity, Tesla, Google and the Singapore Government … The Strategy Journey also showcases many small business examples including the success strategies of a Pilates studio, a café, a local vet practice, a digital marketing agency, a recruitment agency, a dance studio, and more ...
