You have complex situations, difficult problems, and challenging decisions. The problem is you seldom have access to all the information you need, you have a limited view of the entire system involved, and you still need to decide and act.
It's time to become a strategic thinker. You need strategic thinking
- If your own and run a business with 50 employees
- If you’re a sole-proprietor of a one-man (or woman) show
- If you’re the CEO of a multi-billion dollar conglomerate
- If you're working at ANY level in a business
Without strategic thinking you will likely be confused, unfocused and unproductive. Very busy - YES, but busy does not mean that the things that need to be done to help ensure long-term viability are being done.
And, some of you think that strategy and strategic thinking is something that is "wired in" or you are born that way. Certainly, some are more gifted, but anyone can become a strategic thinker.
