DOCUMENT DESCRIPTION

This presentation traces the evolution of Strategic Thinking since the dawn of Strategy, marked by Sun Tzu's Art of War. It outlines 4 chronological eras of Strategy:

1. Exclusivity and Monopolies
2. Scientific Management
3. Competitive Thinking
4. Strategic Proliferation

We are in the period of Strategic Proliferation, which is marked by an increasing number of strategic disruptions, each giving rise to its own set of Strategic Thinking philosophies and frameworks. Over time, business environments and strategies have become increasingly complex—there is no longer a holistic, overarching strategy framework that can be leveraged.

In this period, the strategic span of control has become difficult to manage, which results in a gradual loss of the internal strategic sense of purpose. To combat that, there are 4 "backbone strategies" that organizations can pursue.

1. Authentic Leadership and Corporate Values
2. No-regret Strategic Initiatives
3. Strategic Scope Reduction
4. Agility, Flexibility, and Resilience

Lastly, this presentation discusses the 3 elements to properly think about Strategy in the era of Strategic Proliferation.

This deck also includes slide templates for you to use in your own business presentations.
