Strategy management mostly seeks and formulates using special tools (such as SWOT analysis, Porter's model, modeling, market research, etc.). Describes a lot of pages. Analyzing large volumes of data. Such preparation will have just working team! Connect to the strategy is necessary, however the whole company. Individual workers should have a strategy easy to understand and easy to put in their own words. Only in this way can be a good strategy to spread the company.
