This article looks at designing online initiatives that create a credible path for generating value for the organization. The authors define a strategy by four main tasks: understanding organizational goals--solutions need to support the overall mission; addressing the audience--an organization relates to different audiences in different ways; establishing value and defining your goals. The authors argue that when creating and presenting a strategy, one needs to demonstrate an understanding of the business, offer a rationale for the strategy, and submit a compelling vision for the future of the online venture.
