    Host Dale Dixon and two of the authors of the book “Optimizing Strategy for Results” wrap up their series on the 7 Stages of Strategy with Strategic Evaluation and Learning. Dr. Evans Baiya and Professor Timothy Waema explain that the continuous process of strategy doesn't always blatantly show how to get the results you are looking for. They outline next steps if you find a mistake in your strategy (even in past stages), and how clear data, documentation, communication, and evaluation are critical on the path to long-term strategic success.
