Sadly most of the examples cited about strategy are for ‘big corporations’. Do the same rules apply to small businesses and start-ups?

More importantly, what about value propositions in the public sector?

Any thoughts?

As an expert in delivering effective strategy, I am always on the look out for good insightful articles that strengthen the role of strategy. By deploying strategy effectively, it is possible to achieve consistently superior results.

Sadly, the hashtags #strategy #business and #marketing are swamped with inferior ‘me-to’ social media articles, trying to jump on the latest band-wagon. Amazingly, these hashtags are really hot right now.

This is of interest to me because these days I focus on six core areas in my blogging:

  1. #Business
  2. #Economics
  3. #Government
  4. #Management
  5. #Politics
  6. #Travel

Any thoughts on why #business is so hot as a hashtag?
