Learning Business Stratgy While Hiking

As a Hiker, I love this article by Ken Favaro, The Strategy Lessons of a Long Hike.

Ken and several friends attempted to tackle a difficult stretch of the Pacific Coast Trail only to realize that they had set their goals without a solid strategy. 

As Ken contemplated all the difficulties encountered on this failed trip, he did relearn some old lessons about strategy:

  1. Having goals come ahead of strategy is putting the cart before the horse. When this happens, companies often fall into trouble.
  2. Beware leaders who tell you their company will be the best this or the largest that before they tell you their strategy for winning.
  3. Maintaining sharp thinking about your value proposition is easier said than done.
  4. Great strategies require an objective, self-aware, and up-to-date sense of the capabilities that give you the right to win.
