The environment of the media industry is progressively unstable and competitive. To survive and prosper in this complicated environment, media companies have to modify their strategies according to customers’ and audiences’ needs, which are changing rapidly every day. Moreover, the managers of media companies need to act properly and quickly in time of crisis. One of the key factors that improves the chances of strategic success is strategic thinking. The strategic thinking supports managers to assess the situation of companies systematically and holistically to solve the problems efficiently. Strategic thinking as an important skill enables managers to create an appropriate strategy plan. If managers won’t think strategically, they will fail to produce competitive strategies which create wealth and value for companies. In this study we propose to clarify the importance of managers’ strategic thinking skills in media companies and the question: who should think strategically in companies? To do so, we review the literatures related to this study to provide new insights into strategic management in media companies.
