Strategic Planning and the Mayan 'Prophecy'

Monday 17 December 2012

On the 21st of December this year, the world is coming to an end. Well, so say those that have interpreted the Mayan's failure to produce another 400 year long calendar that extended beyond 2012. Imagine having to strategic plan a society, 400 years in advance - I shudder to think! Yet the Mayans did and could because their world changed very slowly. In times of slow change, long range planning is simple and generally effective. In rapid change it is easy to think you can afford to do the opposite - no planning what-so-ever. And that'd be a mistake, especially as we can expect a very dynamic 2013 and beyond. Setting your intentions matters to your organisation , your staff and your stakeholders.

For those interested, here's a brief overview on the Mayan Calendar prophecy and whether you should think about opening your Christmas presents early this year over at the Looking Up Feeling Good website.

For the rest of you, if you're working through or taking a break, stay safe

Whilst we know 'Getting Your Future Right' is a book that helps you do that, there's other ways that can be helpful for planning your future. In the clip I talk to secondary school kids about a framework I devised to help them considered the kind of capabilities they will need in the future careers and life. I've called it a C.A.P.A.B.L.E Future
