Getting ready for the New Year often means looking at new ways to plan. It’s also a good time to take a step back and better understand the limitations or our planning and how the context for our planning might have changed.

We’re spoilt for choice when choosing from an array of apps and project management tools to help us manage our planning. But do these tools help or hinder the delivery of our intentions? Are there better ways to deliver requirements and acknowledge that change can be useful, if not essential? Is having the courage to change what matters most?

How do you plan, and how do you manage to change a plan, and still look like you know what you are doing? After all, the art of listening and responding to what is needed is a life skill.

Join the Augmented Society Network to discuss:

  • The problem with planning
  • Versatile thinking in a fixed and moving context
  • Using design thinking for life
  • Preparing for the unknown and a whole New Year
