Open-ended quality thinking time

Comments / {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}} Views / Monday, 14 November 2011 00:00


IN our consulting practice, we work with CEOs and senior management from diverse industries and countries. One common striking feature I see is the lack of quality thinking time. Despite the advances in technology (that are supposed to make us more time/resource efficient), we seem to increasingly fall into the ‘activity trap’/‘busyness syndrome’. Many of the costly business failures would have its roots in the lack of quality thinking at the top of the organisation. When was the last time you dedicated a full day to just think? If this does not happen at the top of the organisation, where else would it happen?
