Every company and most life situations would benefit from having a strategy. You need to know where you are headed and have measurable standards in order to evaluate your progress. You can spend a lot of time, and should developing a strategy but you also need to have your team on board and going in the right direction. Strategy is one thing but unless measurable action is taken it does not really matter all that much. Come together, make a plan, and follow through.
- Strategy in a nutshell is about getting from where you are to where you wish to be expeditiously.
- It takes into account what to do and what steps are best avoided.
- A good strategy even creates moves based on what others are most likely to do.
