There is broad consensus that strategic communication is important, but there are a host of different views about exactly what it is and an equally large stack of divergent proposals for improvement or development. As a community, we'll be better able to reach and stay within the consensus if we first are clear about exactly what aspect of enterprise we are talking about (say what you mean), and second if we recognize that strategic communication must follow a crawl, walk, run developmental progression and take pains to be clear about the level at which a proposed improvement contributes.
