“Strategies in business can only succeed if devised by managers” Critically discuss this statement. Your essay can support, question and/or dispute its validity. In doing so, draw from the literature on what strategy is, how it is created, and external and internal influences on strategy formation. In addition, your essay should provide examples from organisations to support your argument. Information may be drawn from your personal observations, academic sources and other materials. Critically evaluate the literature by comparing and contrasting different authors’ views and opinions.
