Strategy is about shaping the future. Implicit in this definition is the concept of being proactive, not just responding reactively to events in the here and now but using imagination to make decisions about some future event or state. Also implicit in this definition is that strategic thinking, planning and execution brings about a ‘changed’ state.
Strategy should not be confused with long range planning. There is a fundamental difference between long range planning and strategic planning. They both look to the future but, while long range planning helps us prepare for responding reactively to a future state, strategic planning is about proactively making the future happen.
Strategic planning and execution is about having the long term strategic goals in our minds whenever we make decisions. In operational roles, it is easy to lose sight of the longer term to meet a short-term need. Taking a strategic perspective means balancing one with the other.
