  • 6. Forming a Strategic Vision Forming a strategic vision
    • Very early in the strategy-making process, company managers need to pose a set of questions:
      • "What is our vision for the company — where should the company be headed, what should its future technology-product-customer focus be, what kind of enterprise do we want to become, what industry standing do we want to achieve in five years?"
  • 7. Setting Objectives Setting objectives
    • The purpose of setting objectives is to convert managerial statements of strategic vision and business mission into specific performance targets — results and outcomes the organization wants to achieve.
    • Setting objectives and then measuring whether they are achieved or not help managers track an organization's progress.

  • 9. Crafting Strategy Crafting a strategy to achieve the desired outcomes
    • A company's strategy represents management's answers to such fundamental business questions as :
      • whether to concentrate on a single business or build a diversified group of businesses
      • whether to cater to a broad range of customers or focus on a particular market niche
      • whether to develop a wide or narrow product line
      • how to respond to changing buyer preferences
      • how big a geographic market to try to cover
      • how to react to newly emerging market and competitive conditions
      • how to grow the enterprise over the long term.

    • It is management's duty to stay on top of the company's situation, deciding whether things are going well internally, and monitoring outside developments closely.
