Organisations increasingly adopt the conceptual frameworks and models of strategy and strategic management to help them understand the context of their business, envision potential future states and to allocate and re-allocate resources in relation to developing strategic goals. The models and techniques involved are adapting and emerging as new pressures, technologies and opportunities develop. Senior managers require the knowledge and expertise to implement these models in a carefully judged and balanced way. This allows sharp perspectives and sustainable options to be identified, explored and tested prior to adoption and implementation. Aspects of organizational context such as leadership, followership and change are explicitly folded in to this important managerial area of work.
