Fast changing macro and industry dynamics pose serious questions for the practice of strategy. Just how relevant and effective are the concepts and tools of business strategy in an environment characterised by uncertainty, disruption, and complexity? Should we be changing the way we think about and practice strategy? Is strategy still relevant? In this panel discussion, Steve Jaynes and Lara Moroko will address this question, arguing that the practice of selective strategic analysis and development is never more critical than in today’s environment.
