• The BOHICA syndrome – bend over, here it comes again…\n
• e.g. Going on holiday, and not telling the family where you’re going. Get to first stop street – how do we know where to turn? What did everyone pack?\n5,000 piece jigsaw puzzle – to two teams, but only one team has the box\nIf you don’t know where you’re going how do you know you got there?\n
• HOW\n - can kick into anxiety\n - “what’s in it for me?” test\n - how many of you are change happy? If YES, did you get out of bed the same side this morning?\n

• Some Newer Thoughts on Strategic Thinking
• Strategic Intuition Ref : William Duggan Intuition = flashes of insight 1.Ordinary intuition – a feeling, gut feel, instinct 2.Expert intuition – snap judgements instantly recognizable, something familiar, knowing where the ball will go if you hit it. Known, existing spaces – seeing patternsStrategy © Peter Laburn
• Strategic Intuition - cont Ref : William Duggan3. Strategic Intuition – – Doesn’t start with a ‘big idea’ – Begins by being open to possibilities – Builds off other (very different) ideas – It’s a clear thought, it slowly evolves – Not fast or impulsive – It is edified by a multiplicity of factors – Takes you into unknown, new spaces – Once ‘flash of insight’ occurs - strike fast, pursue relentlesslyStrategy © Peter Laburn
• A Brief perspective… von ClausewitzStrategy Source: Strategic Intuition by William Duggan © Peter Laburn
• A Brief perspective… von ClausewitzExamples from History - strategic intuition draws on the knowledgeand experience of all of history far and wide, all stored in the shelvesof the mindPresence of mind - refers to a clear mind, clear of all expectationsand previous ideas of what you might do or even what your goal is.Flash of insight - In a free mind selected elements from variousexamples come together in a new combination.Resolution i.e. Resolve / determination - you not only need to seewhat to do but also be ready to do it. The flash of insight carries withit the force of action that propels you forward, but you need theresolve to push on and make your strategy happenStrategy Source: Strategic Intuition by William Duggan © Peter Laburn
• Obliquity Why !! Our goals are best achieved indirectly eg !! The Happiest people don’t pursue happiness !! The Wealthiest people don’t puruse materialism !! The most profitable companies are not the most profit orientated Think “Snakes and Ladders”Strategy © Peter Laburn
• The need for ObliquityMuddling through – why obliquity succeedsPluralism – why there is usually more than one answer to any problemInteraction – why the outcome of what we do depends on why we do itComplexity – how the world is too complex for directness to be directIncompleteness – how we rarely know enough about the nature of our problemsAbstraction – why models are imperfect descriptions of realityStrategy © Peter Laburn
• Some current realities !! We mistakingly infer design from outcome !! We have less freedom of choice than we think !! Decision makers don’t recognise the limits of their knowledge !! Adaptation is smarter than we are !! We know more than we can tell !! Complex outcomes are achieved without knowledge of an overall purpose !! It is more important to be right that to be consistent !! Spurious rationality is often confused with good decision makingStrategy © Peter Laburn
