ConnectingTheDots series, vol. 02

Planning has been traditionally considered a boring, non creative activity.

Its usefulness has been repeatedly challenged (e.g. in its declination as "corporate planning" and the more humble project-based planning), generating a series of innovations that are often as much an example of zealotry as the planning methodologies that they try to unseat.

Instead, planning can be both a quantitative and qualitative creative effort that will help to both achieve results and improve your own organization ability to cope with change.

This short book (or extended essay) is just part of a series of collected thoughts and analysis.

Focus: the impact of social and technological change on traditional management practices.

Aim: to raise informed questions, not to provide answers

This series has just a common thread: repeating that “connect experience and knowledge to initiate change” approach, but focusing each time on a specific issue.
