Strategic thinking is useful for drawing up plans or programs designed for achieving
future goals and using available resources. Developing a strategy enables the design of
approaches that will help meet future challenges. The mission and objectives must be
defined, the advantages and drawbacks of each line of action analysed, and each option
assessed in terms of strategy.
In order to follow a single guiding principle, it is important to stop and think that
strategic management is ultimately a model of change. It is not simply a question of
moving, but where we are moving. Here, strategic thinking plays a vital role. We must
move rapidly and foresee the future in order to conquer it. Strategic planning is a set of
steps and stages that we accomplish, using instruments and models to bring about,
consolidate and standardize strategic thinking.
