Broadening the definition
Being strategic is similar to Stephen Covey’s ‘second habit’: Begin with the End in Mind from his book called The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Being Strategic is that ability to plan ahead and see the end product, and to figure out how to efficiently and effectively get from the beginning to the end. To this end, a Strategic individual is someone who can plan ahead, who is resourceful and organized. Being resourceful is the ability to access what you need in order to get a job done. This may involve asking for expert advice, or listening carefully to instructions, asking for help, or finding the materials needed to accomplish a task. Being strategic also involves being organized which includes not only the organization of materials, but also of one’s thinking and time. Strategic individuals are often effective at taking shortcuts because they can see all the steps ahead and know which ones can easily be circumvented. Strategic individuals tends to be very efficient and derive great economy for their effort, they ‘work smart’!
