I’ve lost count of the number of folks I’ve encountered that see planning as sacrosanct, as gospel. I’ve also lost count of the number of occasions I’ve attempted to broach the subject with offers of e.g. dialogue and mutual exploration, only to be stonewalled.
In support of #NoPlanning, I offer the follow Ackoff quote:
“If you have the capacity for response to the unexpected, then you don’t have to plan for it. The important thing to do then is to continuously increase the capacity to respond to whatever occurs in the future.”
~ Russell Ackoff
I posit that #NoPlanning is the epitome of business agility.
Would you be willing to talk about it?
