project in process: what is strategy?
I’ve been working on a little project … and I’d like your help.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what exactly strategy is, and though I have a few answers myself, I happen to know a pantsload of clever, strategy-minded people who might be able to help me answer the question (that’s you, silly) more thoroughly and set the record straight(ish) for a large swath of our combined social graphs. Think of it as partly codifying the term to yourself and also finally explaining to dear ol’ mum just what you do all day.
So what is strategy?
Here’s my first crack at it – but I do need your help to really attack the question (how to help is below).
How you can help:
Option # 1 – Drop your response to the question in the comments below. I’ll try to think up a clever image for every comment that lends itself to one (but don’t let that box you in).
Option #2 – Grab the blank card image and go to town. Upload your finished product to Flickr and be sure to tag it ‘whatisstrategy’ – in case you’re wondering, I’m using the Knockout family of fonts (but feel free to make your contribution in your own flavor).
Option #3 – If you’re stumped right now, you can still share this post. Go ahead, twitter to your heart’s content.
