Micro White Paper: If the Balance Sheet provides a “Window to the Company”: What is the Purpose of Strategy?

In this paper we introduce the topic with an overview of the structure of strategy in the form of a Strategic Architecture and then a derivative of that construct; the SMI Dynamic Model of Strategic Equilibrium. We then identify five key measures of effectiveness that relate to the purpose of strategy, they include: Control over destiny; Confidence in robustness; Effective, focused, meaningful leadership; Fuel for growth and continual organisational renewal, and; Realisation of results. We invite you to read the content contained herein, and to then provide us with your views on the validity of the observations through either of our LinkedIn discussion group https://www.linkedin.com/groups/3762509 or blog: https://www.smiknowledge.com/blog/
