what even is strategy?

Writer and teacher Richard P. Rumelt defines the three ingredients of good strategy:

  1. A clear diagnosis of the problem or challenge.  This should be empirical rather than generic -- it needs to reflect how your program is situated in your environment.
     
  2. A guiding policy.  In other words, an insight that ties all the actions together.
     
  3. A coherent set of actions.  It's not enough for your activities to align with your objectives and be expressed in SMART form -- they need to hang together.
