5 Steps To Strategic Thinking

5 Steps To Strategic Thinking

  1. Align to your vision. When you're clear about what you want, you're able to describe it in vivid detail and hypothesize how to get it. 
  2. Ask questions. Ask yourself what are your vision, goals and resources.
  3. Give it some thought. Find a quiet place and reflect. Write in detail your answers from the previous step. Set up a meeting with people from different backgrounds and discuss matters of strategy.
  4. Plan. Identify your action items to achieve your short-term and long-term goals. 
  5. Diagram. Diagramming, mindmapping, brainstorming, drawing pictures, mocking up graphs and charts… All of these techniques stimulate your creativity and can break you out of the box.
