In this talk, Stéphanie Dameron will explore what it means to be a strategist as the strategy decision-making tends to be more inclusive and participative. Building on interviews with strategy practitioners, Stéphanie Dameron argues that strategizing is the art of balancing tension : the social tension, the focus tension, the cognitive tension and the time tension. These tensions compose a paradox lens of strategizing that combines a strategy perspective with what Stéphanie Dameron calls an “antestrategy” conception of strategy work. Stéphanie borrows from Boje’s work on antenarratives to develop the concept of antestrategy. In this approach, strategy formulation is viewed as a retrospective rationalization of speculative activities, making such betting look rational and plausible so that others buy into them which in turn help the strategic content to become real.
