Many organizations are slowly, albeit reluctantly, making the transition from the Industrial to Information Age. It is a profound shift in the realization that we now live in a world of unprecedented change, connectivity and complexity.
In this world, being strategic arguably takes on a different character. It's about being more proactive than reactive. It's cultivating richer lenses to better see new possibilities in the present. It's acting in affirmation of the neuroscience reality that in dialogue we are in fact smarter and faster together.
Curiously, the simple courage to envision and invest in what we would love to see possible far out into the future uniquely brings about proactive, possibility rich and shared intelligence. In this world, this is the essence of what it means to be skillfully and sustainably strategic.
