This article aims to draw on analysis of embodied plays in the game of association football to show the central significance of embodied spatial competence.
The paper is descriptive and theoretical.
Describes the special skills of unusually talented performers like dancers and midfield soccer players who appear to understand embodied movement in three-dimensions, and considers whether these attributes are transferable to business decision making.
No original research is reported but suggestions for areas of further study are made.
If senior managers were able to learn such skills, the practice of strategy formulation and review could be better understood as embodied rather than as embrained.
Developing strategy as performance could enhance organisational competence.
These concepts have not previously been applied in organisational analysis.
