Ok, it was a joke - but interest in the idea of Retrospective Planning seems to have captured the imagination of some of the recipients of our email burst (what, you're not on the mailing list - check your spam folder - or sign up here). Maybe we should launch a Kickstarter campaign to fun its development? - it may require a year of extensive research in the luxury capitals of the world.
If you have a story about retrospective planning drop us a line. You know the kind of thing - a lucky break that is touted as part of a cleverly devised strategy. The arena is huge - it just about covers every press release ever sprung on the world's bored media. Of course everybody knows that any venture is more than likely going to take twice as long and consume three times as many resources as expected - but, as you know, when it comes to good war stories the truth rarely gets in the way.
This blog is a notepad of contemporaneous and sometimes extemporaneous thoughts about creativity, strategy and ideas.
