Strategic intelligence

Thinking strategically starts with asking why? Why is this important? Why do they think that? Why now?

Asking why is often the first step towards understanding the background, which in turn helps you understand how to influence the big picture —to think strategic.

I have tried to demistify strategic intelligence in this post. Have a look!

Networking is about finding common ground

The best relationships are those built upon having —and nurturing something in common.

You don't need to "talk nice" to do networking. Networking starts with finding people who are in a similar situation as you, who need to solve similar problems.

Improve visibility?
Collaborate, integrate, help out

Probably the most effective way to improve your visibility in the organization is to show how good you are at contributing horizontally in cross-functional initiatives. Management and peers will notice. Developing communication skills helps too.

Dispersed teams:
Goals and sense-of-belonging go together

Distributed, or dispersed teams lack unconstrained social interaction. This makes them vulnerable to individualistic behaviour.

In order to re-gain team cohesiveness, you need both to focus on realistic goals and to streghten the sense of belonging.

Understanding conflicts:
Why do they behave in that way?

Putting yourself in somebody else's shoes is an essential skill. This will even help you to prevent conflicting situations from happening, or mastering them when there is no other option.

Realistic vision?
Hint: it's not about planning

It's about designing product increments. Incremental delivery lets you test acceptance and allows you to build up your back-end incrementally. And, eventually, make your goals materialize.

The agile mindset and design thinking are useful practices for this.

Digital & AI:
More than the sum of its parts

Think modern cars → self-driving vehicles. The potential is broad, but the path needs new thinking. It begins with understanding digital data.

I have summarized in a post how data creates value (for beginners).

Agile?
Hint: it's not about Scrum

The agile mindset focuses on what brings direct value. Attention is given to the outcomes and to the teams that create them.

The mindset can be described with a simple cycle:
design increment — deliver increment — measure/get feedback, repeat.

The good news? It can be applied to any change, not only software. But, it requires collecting metrics and feedback, constantly.
