In his new book “Open Strategy. Mastering Disruption from Outside the C-Suite” Christian helps companies to craft strategy in a new unconventional way, one tailor-made for today’s faster, more volatile business environment. His last book “Enduring Success: What We Can Learn from the History of Outstanding Corporations” was the first one with a non-U.S. perspective on long-range success.
