David Lee, Executive Director of MSS Business Transformation Institute, compares how planning in a complex organization is often like battling the waves of the ocean. Lee quotes Dwight D. Eisenhower, “In preparing for battle, I have always found that plans are useless but planning is indispensable.”
After organizations have started their new business, assessed the many options available, the landscape of business seems to change faster than you can change. Now you have many products across multiple markets and numerous partners and when you make a decision your competitors are countering. Forces you have no control over and seem far away are having major impacts on your business while opportunities you may never have considered are coming your way. Meanwhile, there may also be disruptors you cannot see or predict creating new types of competition. Lee, one of the leading instructors in PROSCI™ Change Management in the United States, shows how leaders can adapt in a complex world.
