The term ‘business strategy’ is well-used in a business context, however, it is often misunderstood and not applied in an effective manner. Simply put, a business strategy refers to the game plan that the owners and managers of a business uses to position themselves in the market, to conduct business operations, to attract and satisfy clients, to compete successfully in its chosen marketplace and to achieve its stated business objectives (Thomson and Strikland, 2003).
