Many of the world's true leaders in politics, business and sport have succeeded by adopting the mental processes typical of the ingenuity of one of nature's most resourceful animals – the fox. Are these mental processes extraordinary? No. They are perfectly natural, and can be a powerful tool in scenario planning and making decisions. By drawing on fascinating examples found in business, nature, science, space and sport, the author's provide an analysis of the mind of a fox and identify the two questions you should ask before committing yourself to action: What do you and do you not control?; what is certain and uncertain about the future? They have constructed an ingenious matrix around these questions, which assists you to identify the rules of the game; assess the key uncertainties; paint scenarios; evaluate realistic options; and thereby make effective decisions.

This is a fabulous book which helped me to rethink strategies at work completely. It will revolutionise how you view change -- and how succesfully (or not) you deal with it.
Thank you, Clem, for taking us to the next level.
