The paper “ Taxonomy Strategy - Components of Instructional Strategies” is affecting variant of the literature review on management. The strategy mainly refers to a plan that is designed to achieve a particular end or goal that is set to be achieved by an organization or an individual. It usually links or combines different engagements that work together towards the accomplishment of the final goal as explained by Andrew, Howard, and Richard (2002). The word strategy mainly had its origin among the military people who were quick to put to light the difference between strategy and tactics.
Tactics according to the military people are used in the achievement of a particular engagement while strategy is used towards linking the different engagements (Mulcaster, 2009). Andrew et. al (2002) explained that Strategy is applied in diverse areas as far as the achievements of different goals are concerned. This could be in politics, in the military especially in the times of warfare, in economic planning as well as in the running of the business. This is applied mainly because for one to achieve the ends especially where achieving success is not a guarantee and therefore devising a plan or a strategy is necessary.

It will also explore the history and the theoretical underpinnings that strategy entails and it will mainly focus on the application of strategies in areas of management and teaching.
