For an introduction, please check out Deneffe's TEDx talk on

Fad-Free Strategy :

Here Deneffe reviews why strategy fads have lost their appeal and

presents a path-breaking, somewhat back-to-basics way of thinking

about strategy that is more powerful.

The approach has solid behavioral foundations and is practical,

yet rigorous. Above all, it is relevant for all executives from any

type of company who do not want to put their careers on the line

by following simple non-generalizable rules. ​
