Business Unit Strategy

Running a strategic business unit involves a mix of balancing acts. One is maintaining financial stability while making calculated bets on business opportunities. Another is making careful decisions based on facts and analysis when time is of the essence. And then there’s furthering the interests of the individual unit while bringing the greatest possible contribution to the rest of the enterprise.

To keep this balance, companies must control their own destinies. That means doing a very specific set of things consistently and in a way that delivers distinctive value to customers and the business. But it also means listening to what the data is telling you, being prepared to adapt to changing conditions and working always with an eye toward a well-defined future.
