Paul’s Approach to Strategy
Paul’s belief is that strategy plays a key role in the success of organisations of all shapes and sizes.
After all, without a clear strategy, an organisation can end up anywhere. But in the fast moving business environment of today, not knowing what your strategy is will not bring you more sales and it will damage your brand.
Frequently, strategy is put to one side whilst other more tactical and immediate issues are dealt with. Time and again, Paul has come across leaders working in the business rather than on the business.
Just as bad are situations where an organisation is working to a strategy that was developed some years ago. The strategies of previous years will (most often) no longer be viable. Some organisations refuse to let go of ‘old thinking’ on the basis that as ‘it worked then’ it will work now. This thinking usually has much emotional attachment which for some is hard to let go.
If a strategy has been based on poor market intelligence then again it will not work well for the organisation.
