“A business strategy for regulated organizations may be considered as the combination of competitive actions and business approaches employed to meet regulatory requirements, satisfy customers, and compete successfully, while achieving organizational objectives. Strategies should be developed by specifying the vision and objectives of an organization. The primary objective is to put the organization into a position to carry out its mission effectively and efficiently.
A corporate strategy should:
• integrate goals and policies cohesively to provide guidance for developing action sequences (tactics) for successful implementation
• be appropriate for an organization’s resources and circumstances
• apply strategic advantages to the business environment.”
