In all the discussion which has surrounded the establishment of Scottish Enterprise (SE) over the past two years, relatively little public attention has been given to the desired strategic direction in which the organisation could, or should, develop as it moves from the extended preparation phase into implementation. This paper commences with an examination of the strategy formulation process within this initiative and thereafter considers some of the determinants of Scottish Enterprise strategy against the background of the actual and prospective needs of the Scottish economy over the next five years or so.
