Beginning in the office, The Captain's Challenge will engage captain and crew in strategic dialogues to determine objectives. On board the vessel, metaphors of sailing — approaches to navigation, dead reckoning, on-board communication, weather uncertainties, managing oneself in difficult or uncertain conditions, roles as captain and crew — will all be essential to the program experience. The nature of the follow up will depend on the on-board experience.
The engagments will help your organization to:
- determine short, medium and long-term objectives
- develop scenarios to define the range of uncertainties the captain and crew will face
- define risk, risk tolerance, corporate tolerance for failure, and the qualities that will make your organization an effective learning company
Fundamental principles of the Captain's Challenge are explored in a 2006 article for Strategy and Business by Eric Best, founder and CEO.
