Sagres: A strategic revolution

Autor(es): Luiz Fernando Da Silva Pinto
Obras do autor

Based on nearly four decades of practice in the art of strategic planning, Luiz Fernando da Silva Pinto provides in this book a provoking thesis about the development of a great adventure - the Sagres School. The clear, lucid and detailed analysis of events that took place more than 500 years ago allows the reader to get in touch with the unfolding of one of the major strategic initiatives that happened after the year 1000. The Infante D. Henrique (Prince Henry) and all of those surrounding him come to life here. In this book, strategic action, its foundations, and the tactical discussions are seen through the magnifying glass of an expert. It is not a mere historical investigation; instead, it is the analysis of a project that has leveraged Portugal and, for that matter, the Western world, into an adventure that still goes on. This reading is a must for those who wish to dare and to investigate new ideas.

Two-time winner of the Jabuti Award.
