The Mind of the Strategist:

” . . . for the strategic mind to work creatively, it needs the stimulus of a good, insightful analysis. In order to conduct a good analysis, it takes a strategic and inquisitive mind to come up with the right questions and phrase them as solution-oriented issues.

Decisions made for the sake of vindicating one’s own preconceived notions do not lead to creative solutions.  Intuitive or gut-feel alone does not ensure secure business plans.  It takes a good balance between the two to come up with a successful strategy.”
