From Ad-Hoc to Strategic


A council (or community or individual) has two ways in which it can address its various tasks, either as individual components separate leaves on a tree without really understanding who they are all bound together. Therefore all the energy is dispersed in unrelated actions, that lead to non strategic results and lack of progress. Energy is dispersed, in spite of our best efforts. What is required is a framework which can provide the linkages between all these activities so that they work towards a common goal. A systems perspective is required.
