Surveying Strategy: The Environmental School
APRIL 19, 2011
This post is the eighth in a series about the various schools and models of making organizational strategy. It is excerpted from The Portable Guide to Leading Organizations , available now from LeaderLab Press. Strategy is a reactive process. The environmental school takes the burden of strategy formation off senior management and even the organization as a whole. Instead, strategy is merely a reaction to the environment, subject to the constraints and opportunities the environment provides.
