Joined in studio by John Camillus, author of a new booked called Wicked Strategies: How Companies Conquer Complexity And Confound Competitors.
Discussion guide from our conversation with John Camillus:
The business of humanity.
“You sometimes don’t know that you have the right answer.”
What a wicked problem is, and why we are seeing more and more of them.
Why traditional strategies — like contingency planning or breaking a problem down into parts — are useless in the face of wicked problems.
How Wicked Strategies differ from traditional approaches.
How to embrace disruptive technologies as the foundation of a new business model.
How to bring conflicted stakeholders together so that they can co-create value.
What a “feed forward” approach is, and why it is essential.
How organizational structures must change to enable Wicked Strategies to flourish.
