  • “Normalize” the effect of organizational levels or the “loudest voices” in the room in service of true problem understanding from ALL content experts.
  • Create an explicit logical map connecting actionable tactics to strategic pillars and broad strategic vision as a better way to articulate robust strategies with ownership.
