To excel in todaya€™s exacting world, organizations need to combine strategic planning and strategic thinking. Strategic planning is a formal activity carried out periodically by top managers, but it is vulnerable to change. Strategic thinking is an informal activity that occurs intermittently throughout an organization, but it tends to be non-cumulative. Keidel offers a framework for integrating strategic planning and strategic thinking that leverages the strengths of both. The key to his work is the application of simple geometric formsa€”especially, 2x2 grids and trianglesa€”that help organizational leaders and strategists structure their thinking and planning. Keidel introduces four strategic categoriesa€”persona (organizational identity), performance (what is measured), puzzle (dilemmas that are faced), and pattern (how to compete, grow, a organize). Each category matches a specific geometry of thinkinga€”point, linear, angular, and triangular. The payoff? A novel way to develop strategy, as well as a set of conceptual lenses for qreadingq any other organizationa€™s strategya€”or any strategic argument. Keidela€™s work is illustrated with case studies from his own consulting practice and grounded in the theoretical literature underlying the various geometries of thinking. This book will be a valuable resource for managerial and executive education in strategy, as well as a provocative reading for organizational strategy consultants and thoughtful practitioners.with the goal of keeping travel costs in check, but there may be less bureaucratic ways of doing that. ... 4.
