Speed is NOT a Strategy


Robert C. Wolcott gets it right in his article on strategic planning and execution, "Speed is Not a Strategy." Some quotes that are particularly impactful:

  • "I’ve seen many examples at corporations of 'long-term strategic plans' that are really just operating plans extrapolated out a few years..."

  • Real strategy converts the mission of our company — why we exist — into our vision for our future..."

  • "Foresight isn’t about prediction, it’s about defining multiple plausible futures..."

  • "The best companies are strategically opportunistic."

It's both sad and, in a way, comforting, that he is observing the same sorts of things that I am. He's a REALLY smart guy!
