StrategyDriven Expert Contributor GuidelinesContent and Length

StrategyDriven Guest Author content should provide executives and managers useful information related to strategic business planning, tactical execution, or management and leadership practices.

  • Principles-based – Articles should be based on sound planning, execution, or management and leadership principles. Preference will be given to how-to articles including real-world examples and experiences supporting the principles presented. We do not accept press releases or overtly promotional material.
  • Relevant Contextual Links – Articles may contain up to four (4) contextual links to other topically related, non-offensive websites that in some manner enhance the reader experience.  Links flagged as at risk by Google or StrategyDriven’s security software will be immediately removed from the submitted content.
  • Original Content – Submitted articles must be original works by the contributing author. Articles published on the StrategyDriven website are not to be published elsewhere. Authors may publish teasers on their website with a link to the complete article, however, the bulk of the article must be content exclusively published on the StrategyDriven website.
  • High Quality – Submitted articles must be grammatically correct and free of spelling errors.
  • Length – Articles should be principles-based and 300 – 700 words in length.
