Traditional business strategy is slow, sloppy, expensive, and rarely identifies new value or opportunities for organizations.
One measure of this is McKinnsey’s finding that 85% of global businesses are "zombie companies” that create no value at all. At the heart of these issues are some serious factors: overemphasizing quantitative data (or ignoring qualitative data completely), not recognizing more than functional and financial value, not grounding strategic decisions and assumptions with evidence, and mixing internal and external decision-drivers. Therefore, organizations of all types need new models and techniques for developing truly distinctive, valuable strategies, communicating them effectively, and integrating them into operations and business metrics.
