D'Aveni rejects formulaic management techniques in favor of a more fluid approach. Once executives realize there are no set rules, they might be more willing to discard conventional ways of thinking. It is a good time to be a maverick, they say, since old ideas have never been as useless as they are in today's business environment.

D'Aveni is the Kissinger of corporate strategy. His highly original and imaginative work imports key ideas from the worlds of history and diplomacy to analyze and manage competitors and make decisions much more profitably.
