There is no right or wrong when it comes to strategic thinking, all levels of staff within in an organisation should be encouraged to think strategically.
With such diversity nowadays the encouragement of ideas, innovation and strategic thinking is more valuable than ever. From this valuable information work places can become more productive by including the ideas of their personnel and acknowledging those for their participation and contribution, in turn loyalty from employees will hopefully mean lower turnover, less absenteeism and higher productivity.
Strategic thinking, additionally assists in making better informed decisions, rather than ‘Gut Feeling’. In turn the business will benefit from having encouraged strategic brainstorms with personnel whom are more likely to support decisions if they have been initially involved.
