About strategy+business

strategy+business (s+b) is an award-winning management magazine for decision makers in businesses and organizations around the world. Our purpose is to illuminate the complex choices that leaders face — in strategy, marketing, operations, human capital, governance, and other domains — and the impact of their decisions. s+b is published in print, on the web, and in digital editions on a variety of platforms.

strategy+business is published by PwC Strategy& Inc. The articles we publish are characterized by:

Distinguished contributors. We feature writing by chief executives and other well-known corporate leaders, best-selling business thinkers and philosophers, prominent academics and researchers, seasoned practitioners from Strategy&, and journalists with a track record in revealing the patterns below the surface.

Distinctive content. Our purpose is to find and share the ideas and stories that raise the game for management, written and expounded clearly enough to provide the basis for thoughtful action. Through in-depth feature stories, thought leader interviews, and strategic commentaries, each issue of strategy+business provides an informed, global perspective on ideas and practices relevant to large-scale corporations.

  • Our compendium of “Recent Research,” summarizing academic studies and their implications for real-world corporate action
  • “Author’s Choice,” in which writers introduce favorite excerpts from other business and management writers’ books
  • A set of roundtable discussions being organized with the World Economic Forum
  • Provocative “Thought Leader” interviews and “Creative Mind” profiles, going in depth with notable figures such as former chief executive and author Lawrence Bossidy; Harvard Business School professor and author Clayton Christensen; psychologist and Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman; Internet pioneer and Harvard professor Lawrence Lessig; and Kishore Mahbubani, author, diplomat, and professor at the National University of Singapore.

Praise for strategy+business:

“In a sea of management journals, strategy+business stands out as interesting, wise, and informative.”  — Lynda Gratton, professor of management at the London Business School and author of “The Shift.”

“I find many, many things that I want to read in strategy+business. Month after month, year after year they’ve got what I think is the right stuff.… [The] content is solid gold.” — Tom Peters

“The work s+b is doing is the best in the field.” — Joseph Jaworski, author of Synchronicity

Booz & Company [now Strategy&] “scores highest overall when it comes to distinctive, opinionated and interesting thought leadership, much of which appears in its magazine, strategy+business,” according to White Space, a report by Arkimeda on intellectual capital by the world’s 40 biggest consulting firms.

“It is a real contribution to the practice of leadership.” — Ram Charan, coauthor, Execution (and s+b contributor)

“I usually measure the ‘value’ of a business magazine by the percentage of articles that are directly relevant to my corporate role. Over the last year or so, I have found that strategy+business grades out at about 75 percent on this scale, making it by far the highest ‘value’ business magazine I read.” — Mel Bost, ConocoPhilips

“My only disappointment is that the magazine comes only four times a year. I am left wanting more!” — James O’Toole, the Bill Daniels Distinguished Professor in Business Ethics at the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business, author of Creating the Good Life: Applying Aristotle's Wisdom to Find Meaning and Happiness (and s+b contributor)
