One of the reasons why meetings keep on stretching beyond stipulated time is that themembers , specially the chairman of the meeting does not have clear idea between thestrength of the organization and the required strategy for achieving the objectives. As aresult they keep on swinging between strategy and strength.But the sheer fact is that strength is always stronger than strategy. Strategy is only for them where the strength is less or is not enough to achieve the target. In other wordsstrategy is a ploy if not a complete deceit.Look at a tiger while catching the deer it has to deploy a strategy because it knows that itcannot overrun a deer on a long run. So stealthily it goes near the prey as much as possible before running.Once caught , it employs sheer force of it's jaws and claws to kill it and cut it in no time.Whereas a meat seller while cutting meat has to apply strategy which comes in the formof chopper. Because his strength is not enough to chop the meat.Similarly vultures to eat hard bones of the left over prey of tigers ,take the bone up in thesky and drop it on hard ground. The bone gets crushed and the vultures feast on themarrow. The vultures know that its beak cannot crush the hard bone so it employs astrategy.A strategic management can be defined as --- The art and science of formulating ,implementing and evaluating cross-functional ploys that enable an organization toachieve it's objectives with the otherwise-not-enough resources and strength.Strength achieves the target in the most elegant and efficient ways whereas the strategyachieves the target in the least deployable ways. The strength rarely fails but the strategymay fail from time to time. Strength comes from inside whereas strategy gets assembledoutside.If the strength is the Highest Common Factor (HCF) then the strategy is the LeastCommon Multiplication (LCM). Strength is sleek and small , Strategy is big and heavy.The organization that already has the strength for the objective , employing a strategythere may simply worsen the situation. Just imagine a tiger using a nut cracker to break the bones. Alas! he has to be a vegetarian then.
