What then is Business Strategy?
The word ‘Strategy’ is coined from the Greek word ‘Strategia’ used in Military Science to mean ‘all comprehensive plans and tactics deployed in distinguishing battles within wars and prosecuting those battles, leading to the ultimate defeat of the enemy and eventual victory at the wars.

Strategy has now been imported into management or business after the Second World War (1945). Some of the early management writers on Strategy are Chandler, Drucker, Johnson, Scholes and Wittington etc.

There are three levels of Strategy:
– Corporate Strategy: This has to do with making business decisions and visioning objective.
