“A few months ago my team and I signed up for an online course with Red & Yellow to beef up our Management skills. I must say, juggling school, work and life is always challenging. However, we made it, with a distinction also. Now I’ve signed up for another course because winning is so addictive.”

Every business needs a strategy. It directs the actions of and creates the vision for the organisation to achieve its long-term objectives. The strategy involves consistent decision making that guides the route of activities and approaches that a business will take over a defined period after considering its operating environment, customers, product, and/or service offering to achieve its set goals. It also outlines the tactics and plans that you will use to execute this direction.

Typically, you will formulate your strategy based on your business goals and aspirations – whether this is purely to make money, to help the environment, to help employees find a way to contribute meaningfully to their communities, or a combination of all the above. Your answer to ‘Why do we exist?’ or ‘Why do we do what we do?’ will provide the core purpose of your business strategy, which will in turn direct how you will reach your goals.

In marketing, strategy starts by understanding what the business wants to achieve, what problem it wants to solve, who the business serves (i.e., the customer), and how it will add value to the market. It then considers the context in which the business and its competitors operate to outline the key methods to gain competitive advantage and add value.
