Leading Through Uncertainty
Time & Location
About the Event
The 3 legged stool of management used to be Forecast/Plan/Execute. But these days the very best forecasters don’t think they can see accurately more than 400 days out; for the less skilled of us, the horizon is just 150 days. Kiss goodbye to your 3- or 5-year plan! Uncertainty is here to stay and with it must come a new kind of leadership and a different definition of success.
