One week only—half-off a year of Strategy Notes! Take advantage until 21 November 2021. Code works for any and all, so feel free to share with others.
If you want a clear, concise thought about strategy-making delivered to your Inbox every Monday, this is it. And let’s face it, there aren’t many places, if any, that are thinking through a philosophy of strategy.
We covered a lot of ground in 2021. John Boyd and his OODA loop. That there’s only one strategy and 50 pro tips for those looking to be (better) strategists. There was the negative end of things: why nobody wants to read your strategy and why, so often, strategies suck. Several diagnostic tests: the rule of thirds, pre-checking, thought experiments, and a stress test designed to ensure the strategy actually took hold in the organization. I recounted my harsh exposure to the Law of Conservation of Strategy. Finally, I covered how it was that I came to believe strategies are essentially worthless, and that the strategist matters most.
There’ll be so much more in 2022. On speed, on pace, on value, on simplicity, on “winning” and “losing,” and what those terms even mean nowadays.
Subscribers hold sway. They push topics to cover, and only they will have full-access to each and every week’s insights.
So climb aboard for 2022. You’ve got one week to decide.
