I thought that we were going to have strategy meetings every 2 weeks, alternating with operations meetings. And we had a strategy meeting last week…

Am starting to actually feel that these things of a particular type of meeting (call it strategy or any other name) every other two weeks and the other, are confusing. Can’t we just decide to change the original name from Leadership to Strategy or whatever name you want, and then continue every week like it was before? I personally do not care whether the agenda items belong to strategy or operational or leadership or any other name. Or i mind about is what is on the agenda and that this happens every Thursday at a particular time.

Having a strategy meeting every 2 weeks, and an operations meeting every 2 weeks (and these are alternate weeks from each other) shouldn’t be that hard. I’m sure we’ll get the future announcements right…

Based on the very short experience so far (n=1) I find that distinguishing between whether it’s a “think about strategy” versus “do things in the operational plan” is helpful. :slight_smile:

@dkayiwa I also have a hard time tracking, but I think it will become clearer as we move along through the year. I guess you’ll have to be like me, and just attend every Thursday regardless of which meeting it is! :smile:
