In an environment characterised by turbulence; shifting regulations, evolving technology, economic uncertainty, competitor movement and changing customer needs; executing strategy effectively is increasingly difficult.
Every strategy is a work in progress that is subject to revision in light of ongoing interactions between the organisation and its shifting environment.
