Posted on Thursday 7th June 2012

The Department of Marketing were delighted to welcome highly acclaimed academic Professor George Day to Birmingham Business School to deliver a guest lecture based on his prize winning book ‘Strategy From The Outside In’:  “An enduring question for strategy is why some companies consistently outperform their rivals, and why others lose their way. Our answer is that market leaders drive their strategy from the outside in”.
