Defining Strategy – The Doctor’s Den S01E06

Dr. D. Light finally and slowly moves away from ideation into the strategic phase of the power process. He tiptoes towards a definition of strategy and dips his toe into an explanation about the purpose of strategy in the power process.

The basis for this discussion lies in the decision at the end of the ideational process – to create or destroy…where creation is about preserving /building while destruction is about taking apart/perhaps rebuilding.

This video is the opening salvo in a series that will examine each of the six waystations of strategy – energy, doctrine, organization, control, chance, and goal-setting. After that examination we will discuss means of manifestation, strategic flow, the feedback loop, metrics for success. and much more.
