A different approach to strategy...
Joseph Schumpeter described the “... perennial gale of creative destruction” as the essential feature for “every piece of business strategy.” That advice is as sound today as it was 60 years ago. In a stable environment, strategy is about staking out a position and getting better at the things necessary to defend that position.

Who Should Attend
Executives, Managers and Leaders who want to improve their abilities to think strategically on their own; who want to learn how to create and execute complex strategies, as well as improve their abilities to design and lead broader strategic conversations with others.
What you will learn
The Prometheus Strategic Planning System is a methodology for envisioning and creating your future, and igniting the passion and energy in your organization to make it happen. Once Prometheus is accepted and incorporated by an organization, everyone can move forward together. Most importantly, people will no longer be thinking like bricklayers.
Bricklayers are specialists, but are usually not thinking about the larger strategic issues, such as how a community should be organized, or what the purpose of the buildings should be. They are primarily concerned about the details of construction: How many bricks will we need? How high should this wall be? The Prometheus Process helps people “think like an architect rather than a bricklayer.”
