Job Description for Director of Strategy

A director of strategy plans their company's overarching goals and vision. They work with other managers in the organization to achieve these goals using research, planning, and evaluation. A typical work day for a director of strategy involves a good deal of research. The director identifies trends in the market, forecasts patterns, researches the actions of competitors, and eventually formulates cohesive strategies based on this research. The final result of this research and observation is a cohesive strategy and plans that the director of strategy presents to the leaders of the company for approval. The director of strategy may also be responsible for planning training for lower-level employees in their organization as well. A director of strategy generally works full time for a single business, although they may also operate as a consultant for multiple companies on a contract basis. The director of strategy frequently works independently, although the director of strategy eventually meets with various business managers and leaders to present information and strategy.
