Chris Stern designed tools to prevent strategic business mistakes

In his evolutionary Web Book on, Chris Stern discovers that a smart combination of existing business-risk-management tools can create highly effective means to manage strategic business risk.

RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Strategic and business risk can be detected and prevented, and better strategies are possible as a result of these findings, claims business author Chris Stern in the latest chapter of his evolutionary web book on BizIsSimple.Com. "I can just not understand why so many organizations repeatedly make completely avoidable strategic mistakes" states Stern.


In chapter eleven on BizIsSimple.Com, Stern discusses in detail the many facets of business risk and provides insight in how to detect and effectively avoid such risks. As in the previous chapters, Stern lays out various methodologies, discusses advantages and disadvantages and then follows up with practical examples on how to use the hands-on tools.

The chapter highlights the two most common strategic mistakes. Mistake one is an overly aggressive roll-out, including ignoring failure-rates of new markets or new products, and the resources required to survive an expansion. Mistake two is underestimating the competitive forces in the market place. Of course in many cases.these risks come combined to a perfect storm.

Stern is very pragmatic when he finds that "The old adage is that if I had known ten years ago what I know today, I could have avoided many of my own mistakes and thus would have been exposed to much less risk. But then again, my learning curve would have been flatter as well. I hope that using the tools provided in this chapter will help people making better business decisions."

The goal of is to look at business administration in an extremely pragmatic way and to help readers find tools they can immediately apply in day-to-day business.

The web book will be an ongoing work. In contrast to paper publications, the author can add and change content based on readers' input or updated knowledge. The new chapter is called "Strategy Compilation" and is available for immediate reading at

Every chapter comes with a downloadable presentation and the author plans to add video sequences in the near future. Until further notice, access to the site is free of charge.
