From Walter Kiechel in ChangeThis: “The vultures are circling. ‘Strategy, as we knew it, is dead,’ proclaims Walt Shill, head of Accenture’s North American consulting practice. A January 25 Wall Street Journal article quotes him explaining, ‘Corporate clients decided that increased flexibility and accelerated decision-making are much more important than simply predicting the future.’ A recent white paper from the Boston Consulting Group hung similar crepe. In its research on global powerhouses the firm found some saying they don’t ‘do strategy’ any more.

Well, yes — and no.” · Go to Bring Strategy Back from the Dead →
