The notion of strategy vs. tactics is a bit messy. Before I dive too deep into the semantics in the form of a full blog post, I wanted to post the results of a little mental exercise. Working with the strictest definitions of strategy and tactics I built out a matrix with the definition of the terms, activities in each category, and the roles or disciplines that fit in them. I am beginning to think that everything I do is about some flavor of tactics. While I haven’t fully formed an opinion, the diagram below represents where my head is at the moment.
Feedback, comments, and dialogue would be most welcome.
