"It's really important to not just develop a strategy and let it be. Make sure that you ACTIVATE that strategy."

(#97) Strategy. One word, many definitions, almost infinite possibilities. What is it? What makes it work? Where do you start? During her time here at the Association, Jennifer Gardner recorded this conversation with Sil Garaventa, Director of Sales Support for US Foods in North Carolina. This is a high-level exploration of strategy: when a company has resource limitations, the team has to make choices around where to focus. At the heart of it, that's strategy.
