What Dwight (Eisenhower, that is) said.
My other favourite quote – I think from von Clausewitz – is “no battle plan survives contact with the enemy.”
Well, MCFly has been dishing it out – and then some – to organisations that have plans and don’t keep to them. There’s been a little voice in its head saying “someone’s gonna prove you is a hypocrite, matey.”
Indeed – all they’d need to do is compare our grubby reality versus what we said we’d do.
I guess the difference is;
a) MCFly can freely admit it, not sadled as we are with job fears and the Peter Principle and all that jazz
b) MCFly actually has some outputs (if not necessarily outcomes) to point to.
That strategic plan, btw, will be rebooted and recycled. While all the while remembering what Dwight (Eisenhower) said.
