Most of these owners/managers are interested in adapting the environment in which they are active, but they do not have sufficient experience to practice strategic vigilance. Just configurable, strategy setting is intuitive and decisions are reactive. In addition to the fluctuation of the economic, social, and political environmental conditions, as well as the instability of government policies and the change in laws and legislation, as it is not possible to imagine a clear future vision for the status of the institution, and the circumstances require flexibility and quick and improvisational decisions, but strategic vigilance requires a long time.
