A new North


Complex situations are a soup of pro and con, upside and downside, judgement and rationalisation. They’re subtle. Nuanced. Balanced. Conflicted.

Decision making is messy. Yet to be actionable, the decision has to be clear, sparkling, explicit.

Standing in front of the room, now is not the time to unpick all the arguments, open out the debate, review the research and expand every data point.

It’s time for direct and directional communications.

The process was thorough … these are the finger posts that stood tallest … this is our new North.

Skippy Strategy: Expose the thinking, share the decision, look forward.
