Thoughts… on plans

I’ve been having discussion regarding plans with some folks recently. It got me thinking and I’ve come to the conclusion that you should keep Eisenhower and Powell’s Axioms in mind, namely:

Eisenhower’s Axiom: “In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.”

Powell’s Axiom: “No battle plan survives contact with the enemy.”

To this I’d like to add my own:

Eugen’s Axiom: “The foundation of a good plan is to rely on those you trust.”

It makes the planning quite useful if you know that when the plan becomes obsolete you can move forward with conviction.
