Eric Kurjan, president of Six Disciplines NWO , has authored a new article "Tis The Season - Strategic Planning - It's A Real Party!"which has been published by COSE Mindspring (the source for small business insight in Northeast Ohio). 


For many organizations, ‘tis the season for holiday get togethers, bad gift exchanges, and even something that masquerades as a strategic planning session.  And it usually contains some or all of the following characteristics:

  • Conducted as an off-site retreat – with too little accomplished
  • Lengthy discussions with aimless wandering, lots of brainstorming, flipcharts, too many items to act on, and nothing that “sticks”
  • Big demands with frantic business plans to grow the top line revenues– top-down, budgets, spreadsheets – and lots of caffeine
