Strategic planning… experiment, common sense and courage
Today’s quote comes from Frances Perkins, who was Secretary of Labor under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and was the 1st woman to hold a US cabinet post.?
I frequently share this quote with teams that are about to embark on strategic planning as I believe it captures the essence of the planning process.
“Most of our problems upon this planet … Have been met and solved either partially or as a whole by experiment based on common sense and carried out with courage.”
