Stephen Denny's "Killing Giants: 10 Strategies to Topple the Goliath in Your Industry" (Book Review of the Week-ish / Back to School Beach Reads Edition)

August 30, 2011 | By | No Comments

In honor of the last week of summer, we’re doing a something a little different this week here at Thinks. Long-time readers know our regular “Book Review of the Week-ish” series. This week, we’re posting only reviews of books worth noting in a series we’re calling “Back to School Beach Reads”. Enjoy today’s review—Stephen Denny’s “Killing Giants: 10 Strategies to Topple the Goliath in Your Industry”—and check back each day this week to enjoy the entire series.

Man, do I love Stephen Denny’s “Killing Giants: 10 Strategies to Topple the Goliath in Your Industry”. More a playbook than most strategy books, Denny looks at successful strategies used by companies of all sizes and shows how you can apply those to your specific circumstances. Engaging and insightful, Denny explores ten tactics and techniques used by more than 30 companies in over a dozen countries, including:

  • Speed
  • Figthing dirty
  • Winning in the last three feet
  • Putting all your wood behind your arrows

In all, Denny provides readers a detailed analysis of what it takes to fight—and win—against larger, better funded competition. “Killing Giants” makes an admirable addition to your strategy bookshelf—place it alongside your copy of Kim and Mauborgne’s “Blue Ocean Strategy” and Anderson’s “Being Strategic”.

Grab a copy of “Killing Giants”. Better yet, grab a copy for every member of your team. And get ready to topple the giants in your industry, too.
