Most people think of strategic thinking as something only people in upper management or company leaders do. While it does start with leadership, strategic thinking is everyone’s job. It can be difficult to execute a strategic plan if the entire team is not on board. Creating a Strategically Minded Culture Strategic thinking can be taught.

    A really good post! We faced a huge challenge syncing the culture with the strategy. Its really difficult and time taking and the post really outlines the steps well!

      Difficult, but important. People with different roles have different perspectives, and they can really make a difference in finding just the ideal strategy.

      What I hope people take away from this post is that when they do not train their employees in WHY their strategy is important to keeping customers happy so they all continue to stay in business, customer service suffers.

      Businesses need to train their people and LISTEN to their input. The more involved they are in setting strategy, the more buy-in they will get and the better their results will be.
