Strategy leaders in an organization establish the vision and think, plan, and administer the operational activities. They play a key role in forming and enforcing a sustainable business strategy. Also, they boost the morale of the team.
Developing a strategy and driving its execution simultaneously has become the norm, given the pandemic situation. While all leaders have to do this, a few are experienced and good at it. We may find several next-gen strategy leaders who are competent at crafting a strategy but may lack the deep operational experience to realize the strategy. This could be a dangerous development for an organization’s growth.

When we talk about sustainability in terms of business, it incorporates the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) dimensions for an organization’s operations and performance. All exercises that can maintain or improve the organization’s capabilities to create a long-term value are included here.
