A model for the formulation of strategic intent based on a comparison of business and the military, 2011., Oct. 24, 2011 (Strategic intent takes the form of a number of corporate challenges, specified as short term projects and opportunities; that must convey a significant stretch for your company, a sense of direction, discovery, and opportunity that can be communicated as worthwhile to all employees; should not focus on today's problems, which are dealt with by company visions and missions, but rather on tomorrow's opportunities; should specify the competitive factors, critical to the success in the future), Oct 24, 2011 (Succeeding in the business world requires what professors Gary Hamel and C.K. Prahalad term "strategic intent"; they explain that it is a business' long-term, far-reaching goal; to determine your business' strategic intent, you must not only consider what you want in the next five or ten years, but what you want to accomplish in a 50 year time frame; main tenets of strategic intent planning are direction, discovery and destiny; sense of direction includes an understanding about the long-term market or competitive market or competitive position that a firm claims to build over the next decade; sense of destiny should retain a sense of discovery and excitement about the future; sense of destiny has an emotional edge to it and should be a goal that both you and your employees perceive as inherently worthwhile)
