when not having a strategy is ok

AS A PERSON develops their career from a junior position right through to executive management,
one of the key requirements and differentiators as to who become the better executives are the ones who know how to create and implement strategy. In fact it’s widely accepted that the higher up an organization you ascend, the more of your available time needs to be applied to all things strategy: strategy thinking, creation and implementation. It stands to reason therefore that to be successful as an executive you must become a master of strategy. But does it? Is there another option? What if a different approach could also work – less focus on strategy and instead more focus on positive and rapid reaction to opportunities and challenges. Let’s investigate.
