“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” It may seem strange to some of you to start an article on strategy and governance with a quote from Dr. Seuss. However, the quote encapsulates how this article came into being. Editor John Foehl is a voracious reader of all sorts of material, which helps him deliver a new Captive.com article on a weekly basis.
In this week’s piece, Mr. Foehl assembles a suggested discussion list for captive boards and management from a series of ideas that he read about recently. Mr. Foehl is a proponent of strategic insight, visioning, and generative governance. You can read some of his earlier articles on generative governance here. Mr. Foehl is often asked, “How do you come up with subjects or ideas to use in a strategic insight session?” Similar to the Dr. Seuss quote above, Mr. Foehl says that it is amazing the things one can find if he creates the time to read and read widely. Mr. Foehl puts forth the following three ideas to jump-start a captive board’s next governance discussion.
