Strategy is a powerful weapon for coping with the conditions of change or alter which surround the firm today. It is complex and costly to introduce and use. It is formulated when

rapid changes occur in the environment of the firm. Steps in

formulation of strategy include defining the company mission, assessing the external environment, industry analysis, evaluating the multinational environment, environmental forecasting, company profile internal analysis of the firm, formulating long-germ objectives and grand strategies. Strategy formulation must be based on incomplete and uncertain information about classes of alternatives.
Strategy formulations results in no immediate action. It becomes unnecessary whenever the historical dynamics of an organization will take it where it wants to go. Successful use of strategy requires strategic feedback.
