Strategy

Strategy creates the ability to act with intention. It combines direction and action into one coherent context. Effective strategy can influence or even design the future. 

Strategy requires an integrated view of value and values, of aspirations and limitations. It combines the vision to create better outcomes, the planning to articulate a path to those outcomes, and the communication, discipline and coalition-building to lead others along the path successfully.
