Following a multilevel approach, the purpose of this paper is to develop a framework of strategic thinking, which integrates the micro-domain's focus on individuals and groups with the macro-domain's focus on organisations.
The paper first defines strategic thinking, outlines its elements and examines some of the conceptual issues surrounding the construct, especially those concerning levels of analysis. The following questions are addressed. What are the characteristics of an individual strategic thinker? What are the dynamics that take place within groups and how do they influence strategic thinking? What are the contributions of the organisational context to strategic thinking?
