Based on a solid vision and mission, a strategy defines possible paths to achieve a goal. A strategy always describes a process of getting an idea, a product or an organisation into an optimal position. That is why strategies are nothing static, but mean continuous navigation through continuously changing conditions.
The Pathfinder systematically integrates an organisation's or venture's crucial external and internal aspects which are strategy-relevant. Covered by clearly defined steps, dynamics and changing conditions are brought in continuously creating a solid ongoing strategic process based on 4 principles:
1. Principle of Goals
2. Principle of Opportunities
3. Principle of Means
4. Principle of Paths
Just like the Visionater, the Pathfinder, too, uses the "Clock Of Change" as a vital instrument. This instrument caters to a continuous development synchronising different necessary speeds of vision, strategy and action.
