Abstract

Strategic information planning often starts hopefully with defining the grand plan. When disillusionment with the process sets in, practical and useful approaches must be found to deal with the competitive environment. Tools for gaining information on coming trends include published information – periodicals, newsletters – word of mouth, trade shows, Internet, discussion lists, weblogs, gossip. One must do one’s networking well to be completely informed. Extrapolation from the perceived “currents” of information is essential. Ideas for mapping, evangelising and enlivening the process are given. It is essential to develop a step-by-step approach to making the plan happen.
