  32. Some closing thoughts“It is hard to plan for the long term future when you don’tknow what is going to happen five minutes from now.Today, a competitive edge is thin and temporary; the edgequickly becomes the margin. The ability to define the edge,and the ultimate competitive advantage, is found in thesmarts, heart and ingenuity of your people - thats yourpowerhouse. Tap that, train it, focus it and mobilize it; nowyouve engaged a network and inspired a sustainable shift.Insight to action, one without the other is either useless ordestructive.” -Tom Hood & Gretchen Pisano co-authors of the i2a: Insights to Action Strategic Thinking System http://www.bizlearning.net/live/i2astrategicplanning
