Strategy Session

Strategy Session, which debuted January 2013, is my new Alberta Venture column that focuses on management topic of interest to senior executives in mid-sized businesses.

Written, you know, with attitude.

If you think you’d make a great source for one of the “in queue” pieces, or have a topic suggestion, I’d love to hear from you.

In the queue:
