Blogging with TrainingZone

 

As Jon mentioned in the Editor's Blog, you may have noticed some changes following TrainingZone’s big upgrade. The most major of these changes is the removal of Discussion Groups. If you previously ran a group, we want to apologise for not making you aware of this sooner. Unfortunately, while we’ve been seeing more and more excellent content from members on the site, groups were very quiet when compared to other areas, especially Any Answers and Blogs.

When we consider strategy it is tempting to think only about the broad sweep of the future, of the great strides which we are going to make and the wonderful markets which we are going to conquer.  But to do so is to stumble blindly into a future which can have little or no basis in actuality.  For unless we understand the present and then take active steps to lay down the groundwork, any attempt at visualising a future strategy will be doomed to fail.
