Critical analysis of: Enhancing the ability to think strategically: A learning model The main purpose of this article is to explore strategic thinking and how the ability develops in managers. The key question that the author is addressing is: How do good strategic thinkers learn their skill set and what is the best way to impart and develop that skill set within others? The most important information in this article consists of the following: 1. Strategic thinking is “conceptual, systems-oriented, directional and opportunistic thinking leading to the discovery of novel, imaginative organizational strategies” (Casey, n.d), in which strategy is made as it is implemented. Thus, it is difficult to separate strategic thinking from the implementation of strategy. 2. There are three factors that influence the ability to think strategically: individual differences, work experiences and organizational influencers.
