Lately, there have been some chaotic situations that gotten us to reread our situational guidelines list
Following are some of our strategic guidelines for the traveling strategists:
- Plan and prepare early
- Focus on the safety of you (and your entire team)
- Leave early. Carry lightly. Travel fast and quietly.
- Use a transportation service that is trustworthy and reliable
- Leave for the airport before dawn breaks
- Arrive promptly and quietly
- Take rooms between 3rd floor and the 9th floor
- Never take rooms near elevators and exits
- Always have a min. of two escape routes
- Always have a lightweight "Go" bag of essentials available
- Carry a paper map just in case your PDA is not available
- Store your corporate data in a separate portable digital storage device
- Always carry a paper list of contact phone numbers (include fax #'s) and a calling card.
- Always have some "all-climate" clothes available in your clothing pack
- When traveling alone, keep one hand free and always be aware of your grand settings.
"In planning, no useless move. In strategy, no useless move in vain." - Chen Hao
It has been said that a bad plan is always better than no plan. Why? One can always adjust a bad plan. The question is, how can one adjust their strategic focus when they have no plan?
"In the field of observation, fortune favors the prepared mind." - Louis Pasteur
- Stay centered, relaxed, ground, calm and consciously aware
- Always play it safe
- Never make decisions based on emotions
- Never take large risk for a small gain
- Focus on executing a purposeful move that propels a gain of strategic value.
