"Essentially, a strategy at a particular time t + 1 is a function of the strategy process at a prior time t. It is recursive because the strategy at a later time is a function of the strategy which has been executed at an earlier time, and it is nondeterministic because organizational decisions made at time t (i.e. the time of the exercise of choice) determine the scope of choices at a future time and result in path dependencies (Note: a path dependency is the fact that organizational phenomena once begun are limited by and determined by prior phenomena that shape thinking and decisions that commit resources, both human and financial. There is the presence of further inertia from organizational histories, scripts, and routines that make it difficult to change).
However, the external environment (i.e. consisting of economic, financial, legal, social, cultural, and political forces) is also the source of a complex of exogenous effects that are interacting with both individual and collective levels of the firm’s strategy."
Recordar "O paradoxo da estratégia (parte II: As posições anteriores limitam as posições futuras)"
Por isto, devemos ser humildes e cuidadosos quando falamos das opções estratégicas da gente com skin-in-the-game. Podemos ter ideias genuinamente válidas e relevantes mas que nunca serão implementáveis por um empresário com outra história de vida e experiência. Por isto, o uso de "ouso lamentar".
