Additional Information

We often hear that finding the work we are meant for will multiply our accomplishments and enable us to attain new levels of personal satisfaction. Yet, many who are planning their careers find that the job market has shifted to the advantage of employers, whether as a result of the recession, globalization, IT-driven productivity, or other changes in the business landscape. Faced with these tough circumstances, it is more critical than ever for professionals to create a plan of attack and make sound decisions as they navigate their careers. The Strategic Career provides readers with the ultimate guide to career choices―both short-term and long. While other authors approach career development from the perspective of psychology and counseling, Bill Barnett demonstrates how business strategy concepts can successfully guide us as we chart our careers. Drawing on two decades of experience leading McKinsey & Company's Strategy Practice, as well as his popular Career Strategy courses at Yale and Rice University, he approaches the construction of a long-term career plan by looking at the main challenges professionals will face: developing and reaching long-term targets, surfacing opportunities, assessing career decisions, and staying on track. Underpinning his advice with research and illustrating it with vivid stories from others' successes, Barnett lays out practical, step-by-step processes to help readers realize their goals. Complete with a program to help you develop your own plan and over 100 specific activities to guide you, The Strategic Career is the ideal companion on your professional pathway.

Terrific book that takes the valuable process McK has used for decades to add great value to their clients' business challenges and applies them to YOU and your career. Excellent examples from real professionals in various stages of career planning. Real practical guidance that can be used over and over again through your life, in all stages of career and life planning: from that first job/career choice, to major changes to retirement, etc.
Perhaps the most comprehensive guide to career planning and searching for a job out there. It could just as well have been titled "the examined career." This book forces you to assess your strengths, weaknesses, aspirations and values while giving you the tools to design a roadmap to pursue your optimum career and position. Highly recommended.
I greatly enjoyed The Strategic Career. I've historically approached my career with a sense of inertia, but doing the exercises around personal value propositions really helped me focus on both 1) what it is that I enjoy, and 2) what it is that I'm good at. I think this would be a useful exercise for anyone--whether currently comfortable with their place in the job market or not. With Barnett's experience at McKinsey and as a professor, he does a great job at communicating his points clearly, concisely, and effectively.

What this book is not: a wishy-washy, feel-good approach to "pursuing your dreams." Barnett's method is tested and rigorous. His cases are relatable and well-chosen. His writing is interesting and easy to follow.

I would recommend this to any friends or colleagues looking to make a change, or even just to better understand themselves.
