The New Strategic Leadership — Driving Change, Getting Results

  • B. Taylor


This chapter was prompted when I received an invitation to speak at a national conference on the subject of “Planning in Chaotic Times”. The conference was well attended. Many of the participants said that their organisations, and in some cases their whole industries, were in turmoil. They also felt that conventional management approaches such as planning and budgeting provided no help in the kinds of crises which they were experiencing.
