Watch Now


To understand and implement adaptive strategy, you should understand the relationship between a strategy and an argument. Join John-Paul Ferguson and learn whether the argument you make for your strategic plan makes sense, and why.

Articulate the assumptions that underpin your specific arguments and brainstorm about experiences to test whether your assumptions hold. Move towards thinking about strategy as a plan to achieve a goal and develop day-to-day tools to test your confidence and the plan’s success.
