You told to “Think out of the box”?

How many times you hear that in planning  meetings for 2020?

You can blame the Brit John Adair who introduced the phrase in 1969…as a reference to the 9-dot puzzle (first seen in a 1914 puzzle book) to get you to masticate on this metaphor.

Just one thought: Push the boundaries, but be sure the team keeps attention ON the boxes. This is where promises are made and kept with your current customers, and that can be a balancing challenge.
