Strategy & Leadership: Do you play draughts?

How do you approach the development of strategies and strategic plans? Some people adopt a ‘draught’ like manner – advancing mostly only forwards, occasionally sacrificing a piece when there is a need to and treating all the pieces on the board in the same way. ("We'll have road show to get the message out to everyone!")

Chess players are different. They recognise the diversity of pieces on the board, play a long game, several (if not many) moves ahead and knowing that even pawns alone can win.

How do you play the strategic planning game?

Is your leadership more like chess or draughts?
