Toughness Strategy Bad. Indeed badder than bad. Mafimishere oh! That means don't use me to play oh! Bad is a 2015 song by the inimitable Nigerian artist Tiwa Savage, featuring the great Wiz Kid. Quite often people employ various strategies to trick, intimidate and ultimately defeat their opponent or enemy. Now what is a strategy? The word strategy comes from a root word â stratagem. Stratagem basically means a trick or arrangement and use of plans to deceive an enemy. Strategy typically involves two major processes, formulation and implementation. Formulation involves analyzing the environment or situation, making a diagnosis, and developing guiding policies. All this involves critical planning and thinking. So in this song, Tiwa Savage and Wiz Kid are talking tough to their apparent adversaries, basically positioning themselves as badder than bad and asking any competition to stay out of the way. This sounds like what I will call a toughness strategy. However, if you use this strategy of talking pompously, you had better win some of the tactical battles to show that your intrepid strategy of appearing indomitable valid in the long run. The late great Mohammed Ali used this strategy a lot. It tended to work long term on both his opponents and boxing judges as often he won on reputation when he didn't seem to have won outright. Basically, any time you are in a competition, don't leave home without a strategy. Every person, household, organization, or even government must have a strategy for every competitive activity. But remember, your strategy is not just your plan. You may have plan A or Plan B. But your strategy is embedded in a flexible process that ensures you win. It must make you different, and if necessary with hidden skills, tricks or ways of winning. It is good if you can get not just a toughness strategy but instead a dominant strategy. It always wins. It is badder than bad. Our hidden economics for you.
