Listen In -> Posture of Strategic Readiness with Van Wray #3: The Sumo Wrestling Goals

The sumo wrestler is not one of sport’s more attractive images.

But today it is the perfect image.

When considering meaningful sports analogies for strategic planning, we usually lean toward the agile and light of foot. Relay races, basketball teams, and even sedentary chess come to mind.

We lean toward these images because they illustrate the aggressive, fast-paced, and/or savvy thinking that we want to characterize our planning efforts.

Wondering how to identify what sumo wrestling goals should be a part of your strategic planning?
