Strong organizations require organized thinking
Professionals build planned structure
Strategic planning means long-term growth
Questions of organizational structure and strategy are perennial issues though they don’t usually grab the headlines. But when they do, these issues force CEOs to reassess the limits, prerogatives, and responsibilities of their role in an organization
Forces such as globalization, new technology, and increasingly powerful human capital require more from today’s firms and leaders. Few can survive in a reactive mode, lurching from crisis to crisis. More and more companies are seeking to become highly adaptive, balancing attention to today’s performance with the creation of future options; and a very few are becoming creative shapers of their industries and destinies. A highly effective organization is the key to this journey, and perhaps the only sustainable source of advantage. Epicurus’ Strategy practice helps leaders speed their firms along this journey.
