August 11th, 2005  |  by  |  published in Ethics, Futures and the Commons, Leadership and Foresight, Special Issues and Symposia | Comments Off on Beyond Strategy Leadership, Futures & Ethics in A Complex World

by Robert Burke Overview The basic premise of the “Beyond Strategy” approach is that in business we put up fantasy measures that we call business planning, such as budget planning and strategic planning, which Stacey1 claims is a political process, primarily as social defences against anxiety.
