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 "publication stream" will actually support other books, as #QuPlan covers basic skills (planning, prioritization, programme/project management, and the associated communication guidelines) that are shared across all my past, present, future activities.

A series of episodes has been published between 2015 and 2018, each one composed of three sections:
_Section 1: Method
_Section 2: Business Case
_Section 3: Thinking

The episodes published so far, covering in over 200 pages a fictional compliance program (currently preparing QuPlan Volume2):
