    Business Food For Thought...
    Stop! Before You Proceed, Take the Time to Organize, Plan and Prepare
    Some people say that it's human nature that no matter what our profession, when we get a project that we're excited to be a part of, we get so energized that we want to get started on it immediately. We know we should follow a well laid out strategy, but we're so anxious and confident that we take some short-cuts, and assume we’re ready for whatever may come our way. We end up overlooking some important initial steps and go full speed ahead.
    How biases, politics and egos trump good strategy
    Peter Drucker famously said that “culture eats strategy for breakfast.” Nowhere is that more evident than in meetings to decide corporate strategies. In those rooms, egos and competing agendas, biases and social games reign. That’s because strategy isn’t the only thing at stake. Jobs - even careers - are on the line.
