Prepared Minds

Chance favors only the prepared mind.

–Louis Pasteur.

Real strategizing happens in real time. You can schedule all the strategy meetings you want, but new ideas occur to people in unforeseen moments—in the middle of dealing with a problem, or during a spontaneous conversation with colleagues.

What strategy meetings can do is prepare people to have those new ideas. A well-planned strategy session helps key players to thoroughly understand the status quo and their organization’s place in it. With this knowledge, executives are ready to chart new directions for their organization when opportunity knocks.

Are you preparing decision-makers to strategize in real time?
