Forsight And Strategic Sense

All these elements constitute the internal environment in which it flourishes or fades the vision, and where strategies are built or hinder the process of strategic definition. It is in the very heart of man where pokes or drown the strategic vision of the leader or manager. It in the heart of man where emerging resistance or the strength to persevere in the purposes, which houses the fears of failure or the courage to succeed where failure is evident or flexibility to manage uncertainty and ambiguity that generates undertake processes of changes needed to achieve the vision. On the other hand, develop a mentality of a strategist is to cultivate the habit of thinking strategically, to the point that it can become an attitude of life, a way of being and being in the world. As Kenichi Ohmae says: “It’s a daily discipline and not an action that can be left in hibernation during times of quiet and wake up when an emergency arises.” View as a resource strategy or methodology for dealing with “crisis” putting out fires or unexpected, is to act reactively, but the strategist does not improvise, not react, does not live in “automatic”, by inertia, as the saying “as we seeing, we are making, but acts with proactive, with intent, moreover, opportunistic-minded, or as Peter Drucker said: “purposeful opportunist.” The rapid and complex change leaves no room for improvisation.

The lack of foresight and strategic sense may be a mistake too expensive, a luxury too expensive in these times of constant change. He said about Peter Drucker “be surprised by what happens is a big risk to tolerate, especially in a world so complex, competitive and changing. The leader / manager strategist is aware of this reality, therefore not left to chance or under the responsibility of another course of action to follow, but explores in themselves and in the environment, to define its strategy. Jesus of Nazareth also alerts us to the need to be predictable and to think strategically. “For who among you who wants to build a tower, sitteth not down first and count the cost to see if he has enough to complete it? Lest he has laid the foundation, and can not, all who see it begin to make ridicule him, saying, This man began to build and was not able to finish. Or what king, going to war against another king, sitteth not down first and consider whether he can cope with ten thousand to one coming against him with twenty thousand? And it can, while the other is still far off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace “(Luke 14:28-30). This picture speaks of the need to act with foresight in life, with strategic focus, which is opposed to improvisation and the light and thoughtless action, which does not weigh the possible consequences of decisions made.
