Spatial Thinking in Strategy / by Cristian Mitreanu

Tiha von Ghyczy (Darden School of Business, University of Virginia) wrote an interesting article, "Constructing Strategic Spaces," as a precursor to a future book about spatial thinking in strategy. Here is one of the closing ideas:

"Strategy is a particular form of social coordination across scales of space and time that can be bridged only by articulated and shared thought. Strategic spaces are superb catalysts and vehicles for the thinking itself and for the articulation and the sharing. They are also -- unlike narratives in the form of vision and mission statements -- open-ended and highly plastic."

Remember, the concept of ofmos, introduced with my fundamental theory of business at and later presented in the book “Spointra and the Secret of Business Success,” is actually a strategic space.
