Elements of Strategy: Start with Vision
Ask any group of entrepreneurs if they have a strategy and most will quickly say they do. In fact, they probably have a hiring strategy, a marketing strategy, a social media strategy, and inevitably an exit strategy! Is this really ‘strategy’ at all?
It’s a plan—singular! not half a dozen plans!—of action—not mere ideas or wishful thinking—to achieve a desired goal. Simple…. But not easy. So where should you start?
Our client The Delphi Group shares with its affiliated organizations the bold aspiration to bring about ‘A sustainable, prosperous and socially just future for our children within a generation.’ Considering this will require a massive shift in economics and societies, it’s a very lofty vision! And it’s also a profoundly worthy goal, self-evident in its multi-generational value.
