Strategy is significantly influenced and shaped by the opportunities and challenges in the business environment. Therefore, strategising has to be a dynamic process, which means strategies must be open to change. When ego and emotions start to 'surround' strategy, organisations tend to fall in love with their strategies. Leaders tend to take 'ownership' of and assume bragging rights for their strategies and no one dares tell the emperor that he is naked!

Pursue with passion, but never fall in love with your strategies - be prepared to shoot the 'bugger' (I mean the strategies!) if and when needed.01132
