Take the analytical method of the father of Western philosophy (Socrates) and the wily habits of nature's cleverest animal (the fox). Add a hint of Eastern mysticism from one of the finest minds ever to grace the field of scenario thinking (Pierre Wack). Blend all three of these elements - with a sprinkling of originality and plenty of experimentation - into a strategic conversation model and what have you got?
Chantell Ilbury and Clem Sunter have constructed an agenda of ten questions which, if answered fearlessly and honestly by the management of any organisation, will provide them with a clear idea of their future in the 'game'. Numerous examples from the sessions that the authors have facilitated around the world are given by way of illustration.
Read 'Socrates & the Fox' - you will never see strategy and tactics in quite the same light again.
Book by Clem Sunter Description:
By its very nature Socratic dialogue transforms the strategic conversation from the normal, dreary type of superficial analysis that companies go through nowadays to a full-blooded, back-to-basics debate.
The authors have developed a unique and independently crafted methodology which integrates scenario planning into the mainstream process of strategic planning and decision-making.
Their version of the Socratic method has come about through rigorous application, re-evaluation and fine-tuning in the course of facilitating countless sessions with a diverse portfolio of companies throughout the world – from giant multinationals to family-run businesses.
