Many years ago, I was part of a team of people who worked very closely on a series of projects, mostly of the “crisis” kind. The team leader was generally well liked, and prided himself on having a strategy for every project and every crisis.

One day, after yet another meeting on yet another crisis, a team member and I were walking back to our offices when, almost out of the blue, he offered this characterization of our team leader: “He has a strategy for everything and a vision for nothing. And it’s killing us.”

Unless a vision comes first, strategy will become generally useless – and counterproductive. The fact is, vision has to come first. Then strategy. Then tactics. Read the whole post, Strategy Comes Second.
