To explore the relationship between the invisible private process of strategy negotiation and its visible public presentation, I will draw on my experiences, presented here as three short narratives in chronological order, of people working on organisational strategy. The first narrative centres on the meeting of a government taskforce that was developing a UK-wide five-year strategy; the other two focus on the part of the organisation I worked for, which was tasked with implementation of the recommendations.
