How a Christian Worldview Defines Strategy
AbstractStrategic decision makers have a set of beliefs, a worldview, that frame what reality is for them. Using this framework, they set strategic goals which, in turn, form a set of primary actions that define the strategic options of the firm. Therefore, we should be able to recognize various schools of strategy as defined by distinctive sets of beliefs in theory and practice. The paper argues that this is the case and that we should then be able to define at least one possible Christian school of strategy, framed by a Christian set of beliefs. A Christian school of strategy should assist all strategists in achieving their purposes in ways that are lifeenhancing for their organizations.
