A “Breadth Strategy” Philosophy

Flur has referred to herself as a breadth strategist rather than a depth strategist. She explains where this perspective came from: “Regardless of my title at different companies, I always managed strategic positioning and transformation. At various points, I was handed the steering wheel and led these transformations.”

Managing strategic transformation at a variety of companies informed Flur’s philosophy in this regard: “Those roles informed my ability to think in a top-down way, but to link that approach with a bottom-up perspective. As a director, it allows me to fly high and broadly, seeing changing landscapes, but also to find the right critical point to dive deep enough into the details to inform the top.”
