Anti-strategies are driven by justified actions and the exertion of power in order to avoid assuming the responsibility for strategy building.
Anti-strategies are the antimatter of strategies. They are developed by individuals who need to destroy themselves or the organization or institution they are port of. Anti-strategies are installed by business hackers who cannot accept the responsibility for the activity they are apparently developing.
They are frequent in involving cultural or organizational environments. Paradoxically, they “die” in the process while they “kill” all those who are involved in the process.
At a personal level, individuals who cannot envision the future of the activity they are doing cannot assume the responsibility for having a conscious approach to it. They need to install anti-strategies in order to feel no guilt for their lack of responsibility.
