You also need to discover ways to plan all these initiatives in a coherent way while taking various dependencies into account.
Vice President of Strategy
As a someone in charge of Strategy, you have to lead your organization into a digital future. You don’t need a separate digital strategy - you need a business strategy for the digital age. But what are the opportunities and risks of such a strategy? You are also challenged with how to exploit your strengths, such as the business capabilities that your organization excels at, while also mitigating your weaknesses. It’s your duty to design, validate and sell your strategies. To make it even more complicated, you need to remodel your business while still keeping your doors open.
