Planning Doesn’t Have to Be the Enemy of Agile

But if planning and agility are both necessary, organizations have to make them work. They have to create a Venn diagram with planning on one side, agility on the other, and a practical and workable sweet-spot in the middle. This is why the quest to rethink strategic planning has never been more urgent and critical. Planning twenty-first century style should be reconceived as agile planning.

Agile planning has a number of characteristics:

  • frameworks and tools able to deal with a future that will be different;
  • the ability to cope with more frequent and dynamic changes;
  • the need for quality time to be invested for a true strategic conversation rather than simply being a numbers game;
  • resources and funds are available in a flexible way for emerging opportunities.
