I wonder - to what extent is our behavior today influenced or directed by the plans (strategic or otherwise) of 20 years ago? And on the off-chance that anyone is following a plan that is 20 or more years old... how's that working out?
I guess that's one of the things about *long term* strategic planning. If we really believe in it, shouldn't we be looking backwards, to see what people from our past were saying about today, then letting those predictions and prescriptions guide our behavior?
I'm pretty sure we don't do that... and since we don't, what makes us think today's projections for 20 years into the future are going to have an impact on people 20 years from now?
