Strategic Thinking & Execution Planning

Strategic Thinking & Execution Planning

The word “strategy” comes from the Greek meaning “from the general’s point of view”. The general sat on the hill to see the field of battle and BEYOND – a storm, re-enforcements, or the approaching enemy. This “strategic” view allowed him to see the smartest way to reach his objective making the best use of resources and advantages.

Business leaders who think strategically and execute accordingly leverage their assets and out perform the market.

Strategic thinking and the plan that emerges, allow an executive team to make the smartest choices given their particular objectives, resources and advantages.  When the thinking is strategic, the actions and tactics are smarter.

Strategic thinking and execution planning are not events, but a philosophy for leading a company that says:
Our company has a purpose and values that inform how we do business.  We drive our company based on a high level view of our marketplace, our industry and beyond.  We understand and leverage our core competencies.  We know our core customer and our differentiated offering, growing value for our customer, our employees and our shareholders.  We have catalytic priorities for the year and the quarter while avoiding the trap of the comfortable, affordable, same old same old “to do list”.
