Have you ever wondered where your organization is headed? Have you ever asked yourself: why is it that some organizations are more successful than others? Management fads can bring some benefit, but they rarely deliver the sustained success their advocates promised. Equally, while the caliber of an organization's leadership is important, along with the strategies they pursue, they in themselves are not the answer to the question.

Beyond Default argues that there is something more fundamental at play; something that ultimately determines the destiny of an organization. All companies are on a trajectory to their "default future;" a place they will end up if they don't take new action. Identifying this default future and knowing whether this future is acceptable or not, are the ultimate keys to sustaining future success for any business.

Written by two experienced strategy consultants, Beyond Default provides an important perspective on sustaining business success.

Good concepts and examples

Good concept to use for organisation strategy design/ planning. Plenty of good stories/ case studies to back up the thinking.

Methodologies were a bit weak/ fluffy and could have been addressed better.

Still worth a read/ listen
