Business and Strategic Alignment
Is Your Organization Tactical or Strategic Developing Strategic Thinking Capabilities for Competitive Advantage
Speaker: Rich Howrwath
Are your managers highly strategic, or are they constantly fighting fires and reacting to problems? Is strategy an annual two-day pilgrimage to an off-site meeting, the result of which sits in a binder collecting dust on a shelf, or does it drive everyone's daily activities? A study of 10,000 senior executives showed that the most important leadership behavior critical to a company's success is strategic thinking. But, according to research in Harvard Business Review, only 23 percent of executives are good at strategic thinking. With bad strategy being the cause of more than 80 percent of business failures, having a highly strategic organization can be the difference between continued success and bankruptcy. Just ask Circuit City, Borders, or Blockbuster Video.
