But organizations have to 36 STRATEGY SAFARI cope with conditions of uncertainty too. How can a company come "to grips with a changing environment" when its "strategy is [already] known" (Andrews, 1981a:24)? Our point is that organizations must function, not only with strategy, but also during periods of the formation of strategy, which can endure for long periods. As James Brian Quinn has noted, "It is virtually impossible for a manager to orchestrate all internal decisions, external environmental events, behavioral and power relationships, technical and informational needs, and actions of intelligent opponents so that they come together at a precise moment" (1978:17).
The accompanying box presents an all too common example of how disconnected thinking can get in the way of real world acting. If the design school model has encouraged leaders to oversimplify strategy, if it has given them the impression that "you give me a synopsis and I'll give you a strategy," if it has denied strategy formation as a long, subtle, and difficult process of learning, if it has encouraged managers to detach thinking from acting, remaining in their headquarters instead of getting into factories and meeting customers where the real information may have to be dug out, then it may be a root cause of some of the serious problems faced by so many of today's organizations.
Never was the possibility entertained that these managers might have been giving it far more attention than it deserved. To many of these writers, planning became not just an approach to strategy formation but a virtual religion to be promulgated with the fervor of missionaries. Concurrently, hardly any research was undertaken to find out how planning really worked in practice. Peter Lorange, who attempted "to survey the empirically based research on long range formal planning processes for corporate strategy" (1979:226), cited less than thirty empirical studies, many of them questionnaire surveys from a distance which set out to prove that planning pays.
