Learning, and Doing, Strategy — Andrew Bartholomew

Andrew Bartholomew

Organizations that learn to think strategically are those that treat it as a constant practice. That’s because strategy is not just a plan to win — it’s a process. Making strategy and executing strategy are two sides of the same coin. You don’t have a strategy. You do strategy. The trick is to build a management system for strategic discussion. Building a legible system fosters better decision-making. Just as important, it forces new leaders to practice strategy. Having to stand and deliver a plan for your team that fits into the company strategy is the best way to get better at thinking strategically.
