‘Think strategically’. A term that lives on the lips of many executives. But what exactly does it mean?
There must be as many explanations as there are people trying to explain them. Amidst the confusion, ‘strategic thinking’ may even become a byword for inaction.
The myths are:
1. Being productive is strategic.
2. Your job is to label what’s important.
3. Strategic thinking is about thinking.
The main take-home for me? ‘strategic thinking is about managing what to do and what not to do.’
