Regardless of the industry, practitioners of strategy face many parallel challenges while in the pursuit of competitiveness and insight. These challenges can be outwardly facing such as how to anticipate the changing preferences of customers or characterizing the threat of emerging competitors. They can be inwardly facing such as how to architect an organizational structure that supports a new strategy or building and retaining a strong pipeline of talent.
