Strategic planning is happening in board rooms across the country. Have you taken the last strategic plan and worked 5 or 10 years back depending on how far out that plan was supposed to cover? Forget the success and failure rate and bottom line. How about considering what worked and what didn’t in an organic way, and added the new way of working to the equation, technology, social networks, and then see how far our you can plan.

More to come.
