They start with a practical, realistic introduction to the analysis process; then they walk you through ten core sets of analysis techniques that every manager can use effectively. You'll master classic techniques like SWOT analysis and Porter's Five Forces, in addition to the latest approaches to competitor, financial, issue, and value chain analysis. Next, Bensoussan and Fleisher guide you through analyzing the global social, political, and macroenvironmental challenges that will increasingly shape the future of your business. For each tool, the authors present clear descriptions, context, rationales, strengths, weaknesses, step-by-step instructions, and case study examples. The result: a book you can rely on to address your strategic and business challenges--whatever your role, experience, industry, or environment. Don't just collect data--use it for competitive advantage Uncover correlations, assess trends, identify performance gaps, and identify your best opportunities Get truly actionable outputs from your analysis Perform future-oriented analysis that leads to better competitive strategies and tactics Use analysis to anticipate and adapt to rapid change Get early warnings of emerging threats--and respond more quicklyThe Practical, Plain-English Guide to Business Analysis for Every Manager and Business Owner!You can use business analysis to address your most crucial strategic and tactical challenges--without burying yourself in advanced math or arcane theory! This friendly guide walks you through the entire business analysis process and then explains each of today's most valuable analysis tools--in plain English.
