Strategy evolved from war to business ideas among businessmen who focused on maximising their profits. John D. Rockefeller is a good example of a monopolistic businessman who established a Standard Oil Company that controlled over 80% of world oil refinery (Lu and Chang 2019). The company acquired other small firms that were not able to compete. Strategies changed later with the introduction of Principle of Scientific Management by Fredrick Winslow Taylor which stated that developing employee’s skills and workflow to achieve maximum efficiency will increase productivity (Kubinski et al., 2017). Alfred Sloan of General Motors was a good example of a focus on efficiency in organization and managed to establish World First University-based executive education program at MIT called Sloan Fellows, in 1931. Another strategy evolution was effected by Bruce Henderson, Bolton Consultancy Group Founder. Bruce developed the idea of production over time and the cost associated with the process.
