Over the next several entries to Jot, I want to explore the differences between strategic planning and strategic thinking.  In today’s 21st century global marketplace, should a business model have a 5-year plan of independent categories, hierarchical structure, and inflexible goals or is it wiser to have an interdepenent, collaborative, and adaptable model?  Do we want to be a best product institution or a relevant one?  All great questions to explore as Mount Vernon Presbyterian School continues to focus on very bright future ahead.  Stay tuned…
