Prince: Where Strategic Initiative starts...

Strategic initiatives are always from the frontline manager who is close to the market, technology, and day to day operation…that is where the Strategic intention is formed, and as it proceeds, it shall receive necessary support from middle managers; where middle managers are obliged to put their reputation for good judgment, and subsequently, based on middle manager’s conceptual, political, and persuasive capability to convince their top management.

Top management involvement is only to set the structural organization flow that allows the development of strategy by managers from the bottom to the top. Each structural processing stage will refine the strategic concept. Eventually, the strategy concept that placed on the desk of top management should close to 100% refined concept, and that means all ‘scavenger’ jobs are already done to cover hidden issues behind the concept ,and solution is proposed for the set strategic concept!
