With planning season upon us, it’s time to plant the seeds for the next big idea. In the world of transformation, there is a way to go slow and fast at the same time to achieve the desired lasting outcomes.
We came across this concept of go slow and fast – “Design for Action” – in the September issue of Harvard Business Review, which brings to mind three key thoughts:
1. “If a (leader) simply imposed his own ideas, buy-in would depend largely on authority – not a context conducive to social transformation.”
2. “Understand the “participative approach to strategy making.”
3. “The answer is iterative interaction with the decision maker.”

Go slow and fast. And let me know what you think.
