The purpose of this paper is to provide insights and critique the relationship between IC and different approaches to strategy in developing competitive advantage in the ‘new’ economy. Next I examine how the ‘practice’ of developing strategy to draw on the insights and critique to offer a different view on thinking about strategy from an IC lens using the example of a music school. The paper is novel because it critically analyses how IC can apply to developing strategy and how to implement IC strategically in practice because IC and strategy have been evolving along parallel paths, converging along the concept of practice. The paper contributes to both the literature on strategy and IC by concluding that rather than being concerned with becoming an IC or strategy “practitioner” we should be more concerned with becoming “participants” involved in developing the future and thus better connect to praxis in the workplace.
