Strategic Thinking and Planning
A business strategy gives purpose to the organisation’s existence, providing direction for all supporting firm activities. By building up strategic thinking and planning competencies, key organisational leaders will be able to devise sustainable business strategies that leverage on their organisation’s core competencies. Strategic-thinking organisations tweak their strategies to deal with ambiguity and complexity to thrive in the ever-changing global market.
Research has shown that a strong relationship exists between strategic planning and firm performance. According to Michel Robert (Strategy pure and simple II, 1998), the companies that will prosper and out-pace their competitors during the next two decades are those that can out-think their competitors strategically, not out-muscle them operationally. Strategic thinking and planning will ultimately lead to sustainable business strategies that leverage on its core competencies and will serve as the guiding coalition for the whole organisation.
