In today’s fast moving environment, do you think that strategic planning and management is becoming more or less important than in the past ? What are the key trends facing businesses, and which do you think are the most important ? (hint: look at pages 8-14 of the Hitt textbook, but also, don’t forget the pandemic, and you are also allowed to have your own perspectives – there are no caste iron right or wrong answers !).  Do you think that the types of strategies that companies are following now are different from 20-30 years ago ?
