Strategy Safari

Discusses all (as yet) ways of conceiving of strategy, both as methodologies, and as schools of thought and how they influenced each other. There are 10 methodologies, and they
range from the heavily 'resource' influenced, and analytical -- figure out how to deploy your
resources -- find an empty slot in the market place -- to the visionary -- think of your happy place, and go there -- the last school is the integrative, which makes use of all of them. There has
been a lot of thinking in the past 30 years, and just calling something strategy, and thinking
there is a single definition for this is not going to work. Resources? Learning? Environmental?
cultural? processal?
