What's the strategy for the organization where you work? Every organization needs a strategy and there are 3 approaches to forming this strategy.

 

Internally-Driven Organizations

 

Most organizations are internally driven, which means that their strategy is driven by what they have done in the past; their thinking is inside out. The weakness with this strategy is that organization members are not anticipating changes that are happening in the marketplace.

Customer-Driven Organizations

Customer-driven organizations are those who try to by close and ready to listen to the customer. The problem with approach is that these organizations end up trying to be “all things to all people.”

Market-Driven Organizations

Lastly, Market-driven organizations base their strategy on making conscious choices about which markets they will serve and how they will add value. High performance organizations not only participate in the strategy process, they also understand which strategy will propel their organizations forward.
