Do Not Succumb to False Strategic Reality

Discover the True Strategic Reality:

Embrace the Blue Strategy that Creates Certainty, Embraces Change and Mitigates Risks

Nothing is absolutely “real”; everything has been socially constructed or created by people both consciously and unconsciously, and bestows or embeds or associates them with particular symbolic meanings by applying a variety of behaviors which have come to be assumed as “natural”.  Many strategies fail because they ignore the true lessons and knowledge underlying the analytics of the man-made marketplace by focusing merely on superficial financial and comparative data without asking the critical questions regarding their historicity and meaning.

Embrace the Blue Strategy that Creates Certainty, Embraces Change and Mitigates Risks

Nothing is absolutely “real”; everything has been socially constructed or created by people both consciously and unconsciously, and bestows or embeds or associates them with particular symbolic meanings by applying a variety of behaviors which have come to be assumed as “natural”.  Many strategies fail because they ignore the true lessons and knowledge underlying the analytics of the man-made marketplace by focusing merely on superficial financial and comparative data without asking the critical questions regarding their historicity and meaning.

Strategy formulation all too often ignores the experience of the organization in its adaptive learning journey in stumbling towards strategic alignment with its core purpose as informed by its passions.  The organisational experience as it adapts or miscalculates or overcome unanticipated concurrent happenings is crucial to a sustainable existential survival. Strategy is the essential tool for HR Professionals in assuring our continuous relevance in the organization.

Strategy is understood by its ordinary meaning to refer to a plan of action involving the mobilization of resources in response to and to engage changes in competitors’ behaviors and happenings in the marketplace(s). Many companies and their consultants subscribe to this reactive view of strategy and focus most of their attention to watching their self-defined “competitors”. The common outcome from this strategic error is their loss of exceptional self-identity in the pursuit of the goals of other organizations instead of their own.

Strategy is the process to assure existential survival. Sustainability is the ability to continually create and re-create adaptively. The primary goal of strategy is therefore the assurance of sustainability. Leadership is about change. If there were no change, there is no need for leadership. In the age of uncertainty from permanent turbulent change, the key Blue Leader role is to engage and foster change. The intent of Blue Strategy is therefore directed at addressing the challenges and prospects of change.

Blue leadership is the emergent leadership that is better aligned and aptly conducive to this era of uncertainty and permanent turbulent change. The “Blue Leader” emerges from the mountain of literature on leadership, strategy, human capital management, social responsibility and business excellence.  In previous Articles, I have described the discovery of Blue Leadership that is widely and openly manifested around us. Blue Leadership should be incorporated and integrated with every leadership development programs in organisations seeking greater certainty for a lasting existential survival.

Blue Leaders understand strategy to be a creative rather than a re-active process.  And strategy formulation is a decision-making rather than a problem-solving undertaking. This unique upgraded mindset allows a mental seismic shift from conventional time-focused strategic action to one that is change-focused.  In formulating their strategy, Blue Leaders take their cue and direction from the core purpose of their organization and its ultimate destination goal(s). The emergent Blue Strategy is a unique design thinking and experiential learning process that customizes an action roadmap for the journey to the ends of their corporate vision. For Blue Leaders, the essence of Blue Strategy is to “remember the future in the past”.

The 9-Steps Flow of Blue Strategy Formulation is depicted as follows:

9 steps Strategy Formulation Flow 2 CC

Blue Strategy formulation is a continuous flow of active learning and experiential activities through the stages of deconstruction, reconstruction and construction.  The Blue Leader’s mindfulness defines his capacity and capability to capture holistically the authentic pattern(s) of changing social realities. Self-mastery in Blue Leaders imbues in them the consciousness of action through the sense-making process.  It empowers exceptional courage for profoundly insightful reflection to inform fearless engagement and innovative decision-making. The awaken sharpened self-awareness in Blue Leaders strengthens their grasp on the relevant patterns of social reality amidst turbulent change to visualize meaningful coherence of the emergent trends operating in their terrain(s) of opportunity as they weigh the long-term impact of possible robust solutions among available decision options in Blue Strategy formulation.

So Superficial!  Singapore Universities are active participants and promoters of the longest running fraud in the global history of higher education.  Singapore Universities lend credibility and respectability to BOGUS, FAKE and SUPERFICIAL World University Rankings Standards whose flawed methodologies with spurious proxies of quality excellence have long been condemned by the United Nations, UK and European Governments as well as distinguished Professors of Higher Education.

Singapore Universities: A Decade of Shame

In 2018, a new era begins in Singapore Universities with ex-Carnegie Mellon University President Professor Subra Suresh as NTU President. The first step should be to cease reliance on and pursuit of a bogus standard of questionable excellence. We must return to authentic impact as the measure of excellence for our premier institutions of higher learning. The determination to restore authenticity depends only on visionary transformational leadership in our institutions backed by enlightened political courage in the government.  For the sake of future generations and the fate of Singapore, failure to discard the University rankings scourge from the minds of University Administrators is not optional.  We either do or die trying; it’s between sustainable existential survival and devolving into oblivion.  Dare we not succeed?  Time will tell.   Full Article:
