I just posted a new blog at strategy connect on the above idea. Might be crazy, what do you think?
We need to break the vicious cycles, it is too easy to propagate a system where we sink further into the mire even though we are trying hard to fix the problems. Too often we jump to conclusions based upon our own mindsets. This can lead to fast failure. Look for ways to break the cycle and establish a virtuous cycle.
Add to the old steps with an extra one; plan, do, check, act AND learn! That way it is easier next time you have the same problem you need to address, indeed you may not have a problem at all!!
Have a read of the article and let me know what you think.

A scientific approach to strategy is a new piece I have just posted.
It summarises work by a group at HBR on becoming more scientific in our approach to developing and executing strategies. It is a great follow up to the last article on strategy in business versus strategy in athletics.
In the article the authors provide seven straight forward steps to follow. If you like some of my other posts then this one will get your mind working for your next strategic session.
