A good strategy is not enough for solving complex subjects; it is essential to perform using a method and organisation. To find a solution for economic, social, technical or market problems, we must act recognising all the factors and also being aware that, by moving an element, others connected to the first one will also be moved. As an example, it’s similar to looking for the solution to the Rubik cube. We must follow a method to complete it, otherwise when we move a line we could affect the part already completed, making it more difficult or even impossible to resolve.

In the same way, a musical piece can start perfectly with a single instrument if the chosen soloist plays an instrumental solo supremely. However the result would not be as desired by playing only one note of an instrument, and note after note on different instruments, certainly creating a horrendous musical anarchy. Even if we start with a single instrument we should do it gradually, in harmony and well-tuned following the score that will allow us to offer an organised and structured concert.

Likewise, with regards to social and economical problems, people try to solve all the factors of the matter with small adjustments according to the urgency or the most aggressive demand. These kinds of actions cause confusion making the initial situation worse instead of improving the results.

To obtain good symphonic strategy we should, first of all, identify all the acting parameters and secondly understand the final aim to establish a suitable method in order of priority that will allow us to achieve an optimum result. With the adopted decisions we should always add and take away the minimum because they could damage some other factors which may be of interest to recover later on.

Therefore the agents involved in the development of the symphonic strategy should have a wide global vision and spatial management, to imagine and preview both the consequences and the projections derived from the established methodology.

We can only prevent collateral damages and obtain the best results by following a methodology in the decisions of the planned strategy together with the participating agents of a global vision. With this action we will ensure the accomplishment of a symphonic strategy.

Based on this theory, our firm, TORRENTS RESEARCH has developed what we call a “symphonic matrix”, a management tool whose purpose is to obtain the best final results within complex development processes and in the resolution of business and governmental strategies.
