Everyone knows a business needs a strategy but why do so many struggle to create and execute one? Typically it is because they don't understand what strategy is. Many businesses undergo "strategic planning" in some form or fashion but the outcome is simply a list of activities they'd like to achieve without any sort of cohesiveness or interrelated goals. This leads to uncoordinated activity that never fully realizes the goals of the business. So just what is strategy then?
