A recent Harvard Business School study showed that 7 of 8 companies failed to achieve profitable growth, despite more than 90% having detailed strategic plans.

The thing that stood out for me, whilst I was out and about at events, last week, was that I was repeatedly hijacked! This is obviously really common and I know you’ll recognise what I mean.
