Not that I'm the most prolific blogger in the world, but maybe some of you have missed me since the last post in January. I'll spare all the boring 'too busy' reasons for radio silence although I increasingly find it difficult to find the bandwidth to 'think then do' rather than just 'do' - this is a problem that I observe with lots of the people I meet.
The point of this blog though is just to capture, once again, that I believe we're doomed as a society if we don't embrace risk and change together - especially when forming and implementing strategy.
I have been perplexed, for example, to hear Board Directors of PLCs say 'of course we consider uncertainty and risk when forming strategy' then fail to be able to say how other than 'we check after the fact that our chosen strategy doesn't break any rules'. I have been equally perplexed to hear colleagues who work in strategic and management consulting to not get how understanding risk at an appetite and behaviours level is vital to making good decisions and creating value.
Sometimes I wonder whether I have the energy to keep on banging the drum. Today I decided I did have the energy to at least give the drum a little tap through this blog. Makes me feel better if nothing else.
