In "How Successful People Think" the six reasons to release the power of strategic thinking are:
Strategic Thinking Simplifies the Difficult - Strategic Thinking gets you out of the details so you can see the entire issue. Complex issues and long-term objectives are easier to address from the "whole issue view."
Strategic Thinking Prompts You to Ask the Right Questions - Ask questions about the goal, monitoring if you are on track, the current situation, possible actions, the pros & cons of possibilities, who is responsible, & what development is needed.
Strategic Thinking Prompts Customization - Go beyond vague ideas to specific ways to address your problem.
Strategic Thinking Prepares You Today for an Uncertain Tomorrow - Strategic Thinking is the bridge that links where you are to where you want to be.
Strategic Thinking Reduces the Margin of Error - When you shoot from the hip or go into reactive mode, you increase your margin of error. Strategic Thinking lines up your actions with your objectives.
Strategic Thinking Gives You Influence with Others - The one with the plan has the power. If you practice Strategic Thinking, others will listen to you and they will want to follow you.
