Dr.Kim Warren
  ORIGINATOR OF STRATEGY DYNAMICS
 

Kim is an experienced strategy professional, teacher and writer. His work now focuses entirely on the practical, rigorous method known as Strategy Dynamics which he developed to help businesses and other organisations of any kind or size radically improve their planning and implementation of strategy.

After 15 years in senior strategy roles in business, Kim joined the Strategy faculty at London Business School, teaching on MBA and Executive programs. Realising serious limitations with the strategy methods available – see The Trouble with strategy … (Kindle, 2012) he developed the powerful strategy dynamics frameworks. He is author of the prize- winning Competitive Strategy Dynamics (Wiley, 2002), a major strategy textbook Strategic Management Dynamics (Wiley, 2008), and e-book summary of the method – Strategy Dynamics Essentials (Kindle, 2011). Widely used in business schools, this latest book is also invaluable to consultants and executives engaged in strategy.

With colleagues, he has developed many simulation-based business games that provide a clear understanding of his rigorous, fact-based approach to developing and managing Strategy and performance. To these learning materials has now been added the powerful, easy to use Sysdea online modelling software. He offers a fully-featured online course in Strategy Dynamics, also available as part of a Masters degree programme - see strategydynamics.com/sdcourse.

Collaborations with leading consulting firms have extended the scope of Strategy Dynamics' impact to corporate strategy, equity analysis, technological disruption and due-diligence for M&A and private equity deals. Consulting relationships also enhance and develop the approach, recent examples including the UK Government's Dept for International Development, Microsoft Inc, Visa International, BT plc, Barclays Bank, Schneider Electric and PWC, and other public sector and voluntary organisations.

Most recently, his work has proved directly applicable to issues in international development, such as Aid for Trade, and supporting Private Sector Development in emerging countries, through the UK Dept for International Development.

Kim has an engineering background, an MBA and PhD from the London Business School. His early career was spent in the oil and petrochemicals industry. He was later retail strategy director for Whitbread PLC during the group's transformation to become the dominant operator in many leisure sectors.

Kim's work, publications, software and extensive learning materials are available on this site. You can contact Kim using our contact form or via LinkedIn

Research Interests
Our research lies at the interface between chemical engineering and operations research. We specifically focus on the development of advanced computational models, optimization algorithms, and systems analysis tools for practically important and fundamental problems on process engineering/manufacturing, energy systems and sustainability. We seek to provide a balance between theory, computation and real world applications through our synergistic research that includes both fundamentals and applications.

At the application level, we concentrate our efforts on process, energy, and environmental systems engineering. Particular research interests lie in (1) Sustainable design and synthesis of energy systems, including biofuels processes, photovoltaics, carbon capture and separation, and shale gas, (2) Systems analysis, modeling and optimization for the water-energy nexus, (3) Sustainable manufacturing, sustainable operations (planning & scheduling) and control of advanced manufacturing systems, (4) Life cycle analysis and optimization of energy, environmental and economic systems, (5) Enterprise-wide supply chain and inventory optimization under uncertainty, and (6) Sustainability analysis of nanotechnology and advanced materials. At the fundamental level, we focus on the development of advanced mathematical, computing and systems techniques to support research in the aforementioned application areas.
