CRAFTING STRATEGY Image of strategy: Rational control, Systematic analysis, Clear strategies, >>> a planning Image > not necessarily accurate Crafting Strategy:>>> better captures the process of strategy development, and how strategies get made

Both plans for the future and patterns from the past - a plan need not produce a pattern a pattern need not result from a plan Need not be deliberate they can also emerge - strategies can be formed as well as formulated - sometimes we end up with unrealized strategies > need to distinguish between formulation and implementation - Hands and Minds should not be separated - Actions may converge to form EMERGENT Strategies - Purely deliberate strategies neglect learning - Purely emergent strategies neglect control

-- no organization operates at these extremities EFFECTIVE STRATEGIES DEVELOP IN ALL KINDS OF STRANGE WAYS -- often through the most unexpected means -- may even stumble into a strategy Grass-roots Strategy Making; -- Strategies may be deliberately emergent > Umbrella Strategy > Process Strategies
