Changes in technology, customer demands, competition, and the social character challenge organizations to innovate and change. How they change depends on their leaders, and their knowledge, and philosophy. To create a better future for organizations and to improve the wellbeing of customers,
collaborators and communities, leaders need to be strategic thinkers.

This book describes the qualities of strategic intelligence and provides the conceptual tools that equip leaders to improve and transform organizations in the age of knowledge work. These qualities include foresight, visioning, partnering both within and outside the organization, and engaging and
motivating collaborators. To develop these qualities, it is necessary to articulate a leadership philosophy and to gain knowledge of systems, variation, personality psychology, and the theory of knowledge. This book uniquely integrates leadership, personality and organization.

Michael Maccoby has almost unparalleled experience of working with organizations in a wide variety of contexts. He draws his insights from several disciplines - organization theory, psychoanalysis, anthropology; and from working with distinguished and pioneer thinkers. These include the
psychoanalyst Erich Fromm; the systems theorist Russell Ackoff; and management pioneer W. Edwards Deming.

A major challenge for leadership today is the transformation of traditional bureaucracies into learning organizations. It can't be done by following formulas or roadmaps. Leaders need the qualities and conceptual tools of strategic intelligence and this book shows them what they must do and provides
exercises to develop them.

Beautifully written, rich in ideas, and thought-provoking.
I think this book is great! It is well-written with emphasis on the importance of companies and their employees being open to learning.
This book is a nice summary of Maccobys work over several decades but also an additional value added where he adds concepts and tools.
This integrates Maccobys personal experiences with the general/teachable lessons he derived from them. The two levels play off each other well and keep the book moving along briskly. The whole builds a multi - layered picture of organizations that fully use human capacity.
We live in a repeating context of unexpected happenings where the practice of strategic intelligence is always under constant demand. The next time I am invited to teach undergraduates or graduate students at the universities in Pittsburgh or elsewhere, I will plan to have Strategic Intelligence as one of the significant texts to enhance my course on "Leadership Ethics in a global society.
