What is strategy?

1.2 Explaining vocabulary of strategy

The mission, vision, goals, objectives and strategies of an organisation will depend upon what kind of organisation it is, what sector it is in and the ways in which the people in the organisation make sense of its situation. Much can be learned about the missions, visions, aims, objectives and strategies of individual companies and organisations by accessing their company reports (often available online). Of course, organisations vary in their terminology as well as their aspirations.
