Today we talk about strategic thinking and strategic acting. Are you focused on the best chances you have of winning in your marketplace?

1. Have you mapped out all of the ecosystem that you work in, especially your single points of failure?

2. Do you have a different idea customer in mind than your competitors?

3. Are you focusing your product development primarily on strengthening the key benefits that the customer wants?

4. How are your activities different from your competitors?

5. How is your brand promise different from your competitors?

6. What's your secret sauce that gets you a 10X advantage? Wither in product benefits or in cost delivery?

7. Do you have a separate strategy council from your operational leadership team?
