The Dao of Strategic Assessment

Planning good strategy begins by knowing what is the Big Tangible Picture (BTP). Then knowing what set of principles and rules are in play.

Here are three of our favorite rules that we have always used for assessing the Big Tangible Picture:
  • Identify the constructive moves that could make an immediate impact or a possible future gain;
  • Determine whether the moves could be connected to each other; and
  • Always know the score for each decided move.
