Why use this?
Strategic Compression is a way to improve the usability of strategic thought. Most of this kind of thinking is created and delivered to an organization in robust, sometimes extreme detail, which increases its momentary quality – it's very accurate given the givens, in the instant that it is created – but difficult to use and adjust with no data. This may be useful for situations that are resource-intensive, but if your business, project, function, division or team are facing high uncertainty, a more adaptable approach is required.
Use Strategic Compression...
- When you want to give people simple freedom within a framework
- When you want to enable a team to take action
- When you want to establish heuristics in advance of encountering a situation
- When you want to make prioritization judgment calls easily portable throughout an org
