How to Work in Strategy

Most officers are experienced in strategy, but how can you turn this into a corporate career?

We recently ran a webinar with Rachel De Renzy Channer, a former Army officer who helped to transform the corporate strategy of a FTSE 250 company. Rachel shared career advice, industry knowledge and her personal experiences.

What is a strategist?
A strategic planner helps a company to become more efficient, effective and competitive. It can be a highly rewarding role, where you can have real impact in an organisation.

Strategists work with all levels of management – from sales assistants to CEOs – to gain a complete understanding of the company. They also scrutinise corporate policies and procedures; business plans; financial forecasts; market analysis and supply chains.

The role
Being a strategist involves the following:

  • Identifying an organisation’s purpose
  • Analysing how an organisation operates to achieve this purpose
  • Making recommendations on how to increase growth and profitability
  • Implementing the new strategy and gaining buy-in from staff
  • Reviewing the strategy outcomes and suggesting further improvements.
