This is the skill that is very important for a first level Manager (a.k.a supervisor). This means that he must have a mastery of the job that he holds; he must know every detail that happens in the achievement of their desired goals.
This skill involves critical thinking on how to best guide the organization as it visualize its future. The Top Management such as: CEO, COO, Board of Directors Company President uses this skill to a much greater degree because the future of the organization is in their hands so to speak. They have to carefully and proactively analyze the present and future of their company.
