This note gives managers a concrete perspective on what 'a strategy' really is and what makes a decision 'strategic'. It also gives them practical frameworks to assess whether some set of decisions is really a strategy and how to assess a strategy's effectiveness. It finally also gives managers a starting point for developing strategy in the form of the '4 3 Elements'. The note builds on the theory of 'strategy as core guidance'. (This is an in-depth rewrite of 'Strategy and Strategic Decisions'.)
