Do you have an organic strategy (or even know what one is?).
The short answer – it’s a strategy that is living and breathing.
Not encased under glass or in a binder on a shelf somewhere.
You’d be surprised by how many corporate strategies I find sitting on book shelves.
Sometimes their pasted to a wall in the form of a poster.
It’s almost as if they exist to make the statement – “Yes, we have a strategy.”
If this sounds familiar, you have a problem.
A strategy is meant to be a living breathing document.
To do so it must be shared and treated organically.
Growing and evolving as the business, it’s customers and employees do.
Nothing is or should be stagnant.
An organic strategy is one that allows for continued growth.
Today, having a corporate strategy is not enough.

What changes will you incorporate to make your strategy more organic?
