If you specialise in strategy, you instead work on understanding and managing business development and change processes from a management perspective. This may include internal changes in the organisation in connection with the company's growth, as well as changes in the business environment, in line with the industry's development and increasing economic globalisation. Strategic thinking is of central importance for all management.
