The premise of Deep Dive is that there are four types of strategic thinkers. These four types of strategic thinkers embrace a very different approach to utilizing proven repeatable processes for building organizational strategy. Deep Dive takes into account our need as strategic thinkers to understand the type of thinkers that are most effective and a process for making the most of our limited resources while also taking smart steps to accomplish your goals. The four strategic thinkers are beach bums, snorkelers, scuba divers and free divers.
• Beach bums are strategic thinkers that sit on the shore and make an attempt to get into the water of strategic thinking; however, they do not contribute to the strategic insights which helps businesses grow, and they average around 9% of all strategic thinkers.
