Business strategy is crucial for the success of an enterprise. Therefore we emphasize approaches, models and processes that can be used to formulating a sound strategy. We also stress the interdependence between strategy and other organizational dimensions like structure, processes, systems, culture, competencies and resources.
Innovative companies change the “rules of the game” by reinventing their industries in order to stay ahead of the competition. This time the competitive advantage is not coming from product or process innovation but from the strategic innovation of the business model and the value chain.
Competencies, skills, attitudes and behaviours of people and their underlying assumptions, values and beliefs are key to the achievement of business strategy. By managing these factors at the corporate level we can develop a culture that will facilitate, support and finally determine a good performance of the organization.
A vision is a wonderful thing. It is the starting point of a journey. After all, you will only achieve what you dream at. Stephen Covey says that “all things are created twice. There is a mental (first) creation, and a physical (second) creation.” You first have to define what you want to accomplish then act in order to bring it to life.
