  • <p>Strategy is based on the unique relationship between an organisation's distinctive resources and capabilities and its environment. This relationship is defined as &#x2018;strategic fit’ and is seen as a dynamic relationship where the organisation does not merely respond to its environment but seeks to shape it.</p><p>Organisations do not exist in a vacuum: they rely on and reflect the political, economic and social contexts within which they operate. These will include:</p><ul class="oucontent-bulleted"><li> <p>a regulatory environment which constrains their activities</p> </li><li> <p>an economic environment which determines how business is conducted</p> </li><li> <p>a political environment which underpins the regulatory and economic environments</p> </li><li> <p>a social environment which values certain types of behaviour and condemns other types.</p> </li></ul><p>This material is from our archive and is an adapted extract from <i>Managing Human Resources</i> (B824), which is no longer taught by The Open University.
