Strategy - what is this and how can statisticians apply strategic thinking

Strategy is a buzz word that is all around. Everybody talks about it but I didn't know what it is for a very long time. I recently read a nice book about this and in this episode, you'll gain knowledge about what I have learned from this book.

What is a strategy?

  • Diagnosis of the problem “What is going on here?”
  • Strategic pillars - guiding policy
  • Tactical plan of coherent actions

But there is a lot of bad strategy around:

  • Fluff - just lots of buzz words
  • Failure to face or define the challenge
  • Mistake goals for strategy
  • Bad strategic objectives in a sense of not addressing critical issues or are impracticable
