  1. Good Strategy/Bad Strategy: The Difference and Why It Matters by Richard Rumelt
“Good strategy requires leaders who are willing and able to say no to a wide variety of actions and interests. Strategy is at least as much about what an organisation does not do as it is about what it does.”
“That strategy is a singular thing; there is one strategy for a given business — not a set of strategies. It is one integrated set of choices: what is our winning aspiration; where will we play; how will we win; what capabilities need to be in place; and what management systems must be instituted?”
“It may not be enough to play a game well — you must also be sure you are playing the right game.”
