Thirty minutes is the new hour, half-day, and full-day when it comes to meetings, and especially meetings to work on strategy. While much longer meetings are certainly happening daily in business, invariably executives and team members we talk to suggest that the onslaught of video conferences has shrunken their engagement spans dramatically. There is only so much time you can focus on a screen and actively participate.

Given this phenomenon, Brainzooming has been re-imagining strategy for this disrupted time. We’ve developed multiple ways to make progress toward developing your strategy in thirty-minute increments. Not coincidentally, the disruption and time-limited strategy go hand-in-hand. When everything is up in the air because of dramatic external change, you need to be able to re-evaluate and adapt your strategy. Maybe multiple times. You can’t do that if it takes months or even weeks to revise your strategy.
