Destination and Compass

If you are reading the mStoner blog, you know that Chris Sherrill has written a couple of posts about the importance of strategy. In particular, I benefited from his What is Strategy? entry. His definition of a strategic plan as ". . . a combination of destination and compass" was of timely help to me as I prepared for a recent presentation to the Communications Committee of the W&M Foundation Board.

I'm even more encouraged by his subsequent post called Applied Strategy. And not because of the shout out to W&M's re.web project ... because managing a plan (compass) applied to a great W&M web project (destination) is near and dear to my heart.
