WHAT WE’RE READING… & THINKING
Analysis is the critical starting point for strategy development—it provides an understanding of the current environment and conditions as well as underlying tensions and contradictions.
Strategy is a collaborative, dynamic and evolving process that guides an organization towards achieving systemic, structural social change. It includes tools and frameworks that align short, medium, and long-term goals.
Practice is the manifestation of core beliefs, change theory, and strategy in daily activities. Practice is on-going alignment of beliefs, analysis, action, and strategy while pursuing transformational goals.
