As shown by the contrast on the cover, there are always architectural (building) and practical (dwelling) views of reality and of strategy in management, the underlying theme of this book, which reflects a doctoral thesis that aims to answer the following question: How can the formal gap between strategic decisions and execution be reduced? By clarifying the relations among the pairs Thought vs. Action, Intelligence vs. Intuition and Decision vs. Execution while strategizing, this book expects to contribute to a view that such a gap (vacuum) might not exist after all. By approaching corporate strategy from a practical perspective, instead of the classical views that link strategy to models fostering competitive advantage, Morgado explains the importance for strategy of two concepts fully developed by the French philosopher Henri Bergson: intuition and duration. Intuition is important because it helps to digest huge amounts of information, humanizes strategic decisions and helps to create "truly new" strategies. Duration, which measures qualitative time instead of chronological time — and is vital to generating intuition — is important because it replaces the idea of a supposed gap between decision and execution with the geometrical idea of a line, the thickness of which measures strategic quality. Since duration departs from movement, strategic action is brought to the fore as a crucial element of corporate strategy. Drawing parallels therefore with Bergson’s aphorism that states "time is invention, or is nothing at all", this book explains that either strategy is (educated) action, or is nothing at all.
