STRATEGY? TACTICS? CONFUSED?

How many times have you sat in a meeting and heard someone use the word “strategic?”

As in: “We’re not being very strategic about X.” or “We need a strategic plan for project Y.” And, if your organization is like most, everyone in the meeting nods wisely, the meeting drones on, people endlessly debate how to approach the situation at hand, with – generally – no one the wiser as to what “strategic” really means.

Next time, respond: “Being strategic means consistently making those core directional choices that will best move us toward our hoped-for future. Is this what we’re doing?”

Everybody talks about strategy, but there is a big gap between discussing strategy, defining strategy and actually being strategic -- so you can accomplish something.

This book helps you approach business—and life—strategically, explaining what strategy is, why it's important, and how to do it. Being Strategic offers you a step-by-step model and skills for strategic thought and action that are broadly applicable and thoroughly practical:

• First, get clear about the problem you’re trying to solve

• Then, figure out where you’re starting from

• Now, imagine your “castle on the hill,” the future you want to create.

• Identify the “trolls under the bridge”; the obstacles in your path

• Next, outline the path to the castle: your core strategies and the tactics for implementing them.

• Re-evaluate your strategy and your tactics as conditions change

Framed around the story of 13th-century Welsh nobles building an actual castle, and weaving in dozens of real-life examples from her practice, which has helped restaurateur Danny Meyer and many others, noted consultant Erika Andersen offers a complete course in turning around a business, or a life.

Comments:

Flamehammer
The first half of the book gives an excellent framework for the strategic process that can get you beyond just talking about it and all the way to execution. The second half is very redundant. The author keeps going over the same framework with different scenarios. I would suggest reading the first half, skipping forward to the section on facilitating a group, and skip the rest. Valuable information - just a third longer than it needed to be.

very satisfied with end result, keep up good work .

The author very effectively breaks down a nebulous topic into an action oriented plan molded around a story of building a castle on the hill around a 1100 AD in Wales...really enjoyed the read and have three people that I am mentoring at work also buy and read the book.

You will not be disappointed.

I thought this book provided an easy to follow perspective on using strategic planning on to guide your everyday life. It's probably not detailed enough for a full-blown business strategic planning session, but it covers the basic points. It was and easy, quick read. A little redundant, but most management books are. I would recommend it.
Cerar
Good read...recommend
Felhalar
Didn't love this one. It felt like it was an interesting article that got stretched out to being a shallow book. Someone told me that it's supposed to accompany a documentary, maybe that would have helped?

but an audio book version would be better! I have much more time to listen to books while working out than to sit down & read a book.
“Being strategic means consistently making those core directional choices that will best move you toward your hoped for future.” So begins Erika Andersen’s welcomed contribution to teaching and encouraging strategic thinking.

As Andersen points out, “strategic thinking” and “strategy” have unfortunately taken on various (mostly wrong) definitions and interpretations. Her objective in this book is to provide a practical framework for structuring one’s thought process in the context of developing a strategy. Andersen emphasizes that strategic thinking is applicable to anyone who needs to successfully navigate obstacles in order to reach a goal...and that includes pretty much all of us. To that end, Andersen uses the memorable and entertaining metaphor of the building of a castle on a hill by an ancient Welsh tribe to illustrate the various steps included in strategic thinking.

The book sets forth the concept of strategic thinking over the following key chapters...

Defining the challenge
Pulling back the camera to understand the current situation
Articulating the aspiration, goal or end-state one would like to achieve
Obstacles
Choices
Crafting the strategy
Tactics

Andersen concludes with some good discussion on developing your personal strategy and facilitating strategic discussions.

What I liked about the book: the contents of a particular strategy may be complex, but the approach or framework used is remarkably straightforward as set forth in the chapters I mentioned above. This book provides a clear and concise template that should be applicable in even the most demanding settings. The castle metaphor was entertaining and reinforced the concepts. There are also brief exercises scattered throughout the book that allow you to plug in your own particular component of the strategic thinking framework.

A shortcoming: although there are references throughout the book, I don’t think the book sufficiently emphasized the importance of “what we’re not going to do” as part of the strategic thinking process. This merits additional mention because it’s at the core of strategy -- successful strategic thinkers maintain a tight focus on a very limited number of choices to the exclusion of other possible options.

That said, this is an excellent strategic thinking primer that is applicable to a wide audience. I’ll go further and suggest that this book would make a wonderful gift to a high school or college grad who’s just starting out and would benefit from adopting a simple and useful framework for thinking about how to overcome challenges and accomplish their goals.
