Leadership Essentials: Developing Strategy
Strategy provides the long-term direction and scope of an organisation by determining how organisational resources, skills, and competencies should be combined to create competitive advantage over the next one, three or five years. Unexpected events and crises can cause deviation from the planned outcomes, even with a well-defined strategy, and it is essential to have effective processes in place that support any formal planning respond to opportunities and crises.
‘Leadership Essentials: Developing Strategy’ provides an overview of why developing strategy is essential for leadership capability and includes ‘Top Tips’ on how you can become a better leader by developing strategy.
The Essentials leaflet is supported by three Spotlights that look at aspects of developing strategy in more detail to help you improve your leadership skills:
- Strategic Models
- Strategic Thinking
"Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion"
"Vision without action is a day dream. Action without vision is a nightmare"
"We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them"
