The Oxford Dictionary defines strategy as “a plan of action designed to achieve a long-term or overall aim.” What is that aim for you? Do you start that business? Will it be a premium or regular product? How will it be made, who will make it, and who will buy it? When? Where? What? Why? How?
These are the questions business owners wrestle with on a daily basis. And in the process of weighing up such high stakes decisions, it helps to keep wise words of wisdom close at hand. So, we’ve put together our top 10 business strategy quotes, plus three bonus quotes (mostly because we couldn’t narrow it down to 10!).
Be inspired with these quotes and keep strategising for a better world:
“I don’t create companies for the sake of creating companies, but to get things done.”
“A satisfied customer is the best business strategy of all.”
“Strategy is a pattern in a stream of decisions.”
“You cannot be everything to everyone. If you decide to go north, you cannot go south at the same time.”
“Don’t find customers for your products, find products for your customers.”
“You have to be fast on your feet and adaptive or else a strategy is useless.”
“Strategy is about setting yourself apart from the competition. It’s not a matter of being better at what you do—it’s a matter of being different at what you do.”
“However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.”
“The essence of strategy is choosing what not to do.”
“In the end, a vision without the ability to execute it is probably a hallucination.”
And here’s three more from three of the biggest names in business strategy history:
“Whether you think you can or think you can’t—you’re right.”
“Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.”
“I take the position that I’m always to some degree wrong, and the aspiration is to be less wrong.”
Let’s grab a coffee and throw ideas around on how to take your business to the next level.
