Harvard Business Review: To Build Strategy, Start with the Future

Listen to To Build Strategy, Start with the Future, from Harvard Business Review, May 12, 2020.

Personally, I have struggled with how to look at my business during the pandemic. I remained stuck in the day-to-day problem solving and trying to look at how I can be relevant right now. Mark Johnson from Innosight recommends looking into the future and working backwards to the current reality. By adjusting our perspective, we can both plan for the future and manage our current reality.

From HBR IdeaCast: Mark Johnson, cofounder of the consulting firm Innosight, says that too many managers develop strategy while focusing on problems in the present, and that’s especially true during a crisis.

He shares practical steps managers can take to look beyond the typical short-term planning horizon and help their teams grasp future opportunities. Johnson is the coauthor of the HBR article “Leaders, Do You Have a Clear Vision for the Post-Crisis Future?” and the book Lead from the Future: How to Turn Visionary Thinking into Breakthrough Growth.

Amid startling advances in artificial intelligence, people who hone these skills will set themselves apart. Kellerman and Seligman are the authors of the HBR article “Cultivating the Four Kinds of Creativity” and the book Tomorrowmind.
