really liked it

The first part of this book is great as it talks about how to approach strategy. In a lot of ways it is similar to Blue Ocean Strategy but as the subtitle states it is more gears towards the practical. Essentially, the gist of the book can be read first in the conclusion. The questions to ask are the following:

What is a company's winning aspiration?
Where should the company play?
How should the company play to win?
What are company's core capabilities?
What are company's management systems that has to be leveraged?

However, when pursuing strategy you must also avoid certain things that will get you bogged down. Overall a good read but could be condensed some.
