Organizations today invest significant time, energy, and financial resources into crafting brilliant corporate strategies. While having clearly articulated strategies is a critical business practice, for an organization to truly have long-term strategic success, strong strategic leaders are needed at every level in the business. These leaders must be able to execute on the corporate strategy and create supporting strategies for each element of the business’ value chain.
Who Develops Corporate Strategy?
CMOE believes strategy is everyone’s job, but leaders have a substantial responsibility for executing the corporate strategy and doing something of strategic significance in their part of the business so they can stay relevant and be a source of competitive advantage for the firm.
While the importance of corporate strategy development is paramount, the reality of today’s business environment is that corporate strategy will only be as effective as the individual parts contributing to it. Therefore, there must be many supporting strategies to go along with the corporate strategy. More than ever before, organizations need strong, capable strategic leaders who can create strategy, be strategic champions, and work together to achieve strategic imperatives.
