Matthew May - The Play-To-Win Strategy Formulation Canvas

Strategy means different things to different people. Some define strategy as a vision, some as a plan. Others define it as optimizing the status quo, or perhaps following best practices. Still others deny that strategy is possible, especially in times of great and rapid change. Making and acting on choices produces winners. Why? Because clear, tough choices force your hand, confine you to a path, but free you to focus on what matters most: winning. The activity centers on completing a takeaway deliverable: the Play-to-Win Canvas, a large wall map that guides the team through the thinking required to produce two competing strategic choices.
