I just read the first half of this interview with Tom Peters, the management guru. It strikes me that he may well be right and planning could be overrated and maybe even redundant!

If we take the current situation with leaving the EU, we can plan all we like but in reality it's more guess work than ever before. How can a CEO realistically forward plan beyond the next two years?

Something we discuss with our clients is creating congruence and consistencies during change and this is akin to that. 

What we can do is plan to become better able to manage disruption. 

Planning actually can't be redundant, what we need to is get faster at putting plans into action. Decisions are going to have to be made and strategies implemented with greater efficiency.
