Completing Your Strategy Playbook and Summary Diagram
Your final, synthesized Strategy Playbook for Extraordinary Results is due, and it represents what can be thought of as a form of “Due Diligence Analysis,” where you are trying to step into the role of either a consultant to a senior leadership team, or are a member of that team, and where you are preparing a “forward-looking,” “crisp,” and “impactful” analysis about where you think the company ought to be going over the next 5 years or so, and how it might get there.

Elements of the Completed Playbook
The full playbook will be composed of these elements:
- A cover page
- A written Executive Summary that provides key highlights of your playbook
- A strategy map or other playbook summary diagram
- An appendix, your synthesized, integrated compilation of your previous playbook entries
General Format: All sections should be single-spaced. Start with a cover page and begin numbering the pages with the Executive Summary and continue the page numbers through the very end (Appendix included). References should be included after the Appendix and follow APA sixth edition format.
Note: Your paper should have a cover page with a title for the recommended strategy that describes the strategy, like “Maru-C” (“Encircle Caterpillar”), which was a large-scale strategy that Komatsu strove for in the 1980s
