In the same boat here

what do you view as tech strategy - what type of projects are these? and what is your educational background, including field of study and tier of school?

my projects have been a blend of different aspects of tech strategy: op model, governance model, KPI dashboard design, sourcing strategy, enterprise architecture jumpstart, cost modeling for tech products etc. I have an undergrad degree in electronics engineering worked as a software engineer for a year before pursuing masters in engineering Management. now 3 years in tech strategy. appreciate any guidance you can provide
