This volume presents fifteen original essays that move from structural and thematic subjects to matters of historical and cultural significance. Contributors to Quick Springs of Sense cover a remarkably wide variety of the literary interests and figures of England from the Augustan Age until midcentury including the periodical, Gulliver's Travels, Defoe, Fielding, the episodic novel as a genre, Smollett, Sterne, and the poetry of Swift and Pope. Its variety and liveliness aptly convey the vigor of the neoclassical age itself where there were many quick springs of sense.

The most damning charge frequently levelled at strategic planning is that of irrelevance. Paul Hunter's The Seven Inconvenient Truths of Business Strategy is an antidote to conventional methods of strategic management that are renowned for being sporadic, biased, poorly articulated and rarely implemented with total success. Drawing on a framework that encapsulates a collection of definitive principles, the author offers a structure to strategy, as a system, and in a format that is representative of a literal reinvention of strategic planning overall; an indicator and explanation of the strategic tools that you already know, but in a more comprehensive format. Paul also provides insights into the collaborative techniques for carrying out the process successfully: formation, evaluation, alignment and implementation. Other topics covered include governance, communication, leadership, learning, teamwork, transformation and the treatment of strategic risk; at the level of a profession. An extended case study, based on the story of Cadbury, the chocolate maker, is woven through the chapters to provide a vibrant illustration of the value and application of the various techniques and processes described. Organisations of all kinds have never needed strategic planning quite as much as they need it today in an environment of increasing complexity, uncertainty and continual change. The Seven Inconvenient Truths of Business Strategy will help you ensure that your strategic process is always effective, visible, professional, relevant and timely.
