In most large firms the way strategy is made and executed evolves around a particular set of strategists: the in-house strategy staff. Yet, our understanding about who these strategists are, what kinds of abilities they require, and how they and their teams support the upper echelons during the strategy process, remains fairly limited. This study addresses these gaps by focusing upon the specific activities of strategy directors and strategy teams during the strategy process. In researching these issues using a longitudinal approach, this paper aims to clarify the actual, and changing over time, roles of strategy directors and their teams, and in particular, identify specific capabilities central to the performance of their roles.
