Strategy and its Role in Becoming Capable

Strategy is focused on the matching of an enterprise's opportunities and threats (external factors) to the enterprise's capabilities.

In some cases an organization might not have a capability in place that allows it to benefit from an opportunity. In such cases the capability will need to be realized otherwise the opportunity will be missed. The realization of such absent capability is part of the enterprise strategy, and will require enablers from across the enterprise such as technology, locations, roles, processes, intellectual property and more.
