Formulating strategy is no longer seen as an occasional planning exercise but rather a way of thinking that enable managers to see the bigger picture and choose actions to address the most important issues, aligned with the organization’s strategic goals and, where appropriate, challenge conventional thinking by offering fresh, creative ideas and plans. Equally important, once a strategy has been chosen, is the ability to implement it successfully in order to deliver results. Professional managers require the skills and competencies to think and act strategically, especially in a M&A context.
