    This is a box standard approach. It’s a great into to strategic planning,
    but it is a process that was devised 20,30,40 years ago. The challenge for
    organisations today, is that the world is less stable and is more fluid.
    New technologies are developing and changing faster than ever, so planning
    3 years in advance is pointless. The political and economic pressures are
    changing faster than ever, so once again, planning up to 2 years is a real

    Organisation and the planning process needs to become iterative and more
    agile. Speed of new products to market is key, small, agile, tightly
    focused teams in getting new products and services delivered makes
    organisations successful.

    The world is now, less oil tanker and more speed boat.
