Some of the best-laid company plans were created on the back of a napkin. Lots of scribbles and doodles, but in the end, that lunch time, strategy brain dump was like gold. And it all fit on “one page.”
As businesses grow, leadership gets so engrossed in survival that they forget to stop, review, and update their “plan” for growth. Eventually, the team loses sight of the “one page napkin” (or literally lose it) and the company begins to lose its focus, alignment and direction.
