Abstract

Assessing the achievement of an organisation against its aims and within the business environment leads to the requirement to consider making strategic decisions about the current operation and the future of the organisation.

Rather than be too concerned about the right definition of strategy it is useful to develop an understanding of what different writers or speakers mean by strategy, i.e. what are the underlying concepts that they are trying to get across?
