SUMTER LINES IN THE SAND
One fateful decision.
Sometimes, that's all it takes and before you know it there is no going back.
The results can be catastrophic.
It was true 150 years ago. It's even more true today.
In a day and age where being adaptable, nimble and flexible matters like never before, have you stopped to notice how many organizations and their people are still drawing metaphorical "lines in the sand"; refusing to plan for the future while clinging to the past?
In the face of rapid change that is impossible to stop, stubbornness is both stupid and suicidal.
Over a century-and-a-half ago, massive change was also sweeping through America with the election of a new president and the calls to put an end to slavery. Opinions hardened, battle lines were drawn and before too long the first shots were fired on a small island fort, triggering the U.S. Civil War. Join us in the city where it all started and see why drawing Sumter Lines in the Sand can be downright deadly and dangerous on this edition of The Reinvention Chronicles.
