Summer time is usually when you have a bit of down time. A chance to think and reflect on how things have gone, what opportunities are around, and regain your energy ahead of the hard sprint to Christmas. Or in our case, to strategise.
So, this week, we are going to practice what we preach. We are going to run our Strategy Sprint on ourselves, to devise our Business Strategy for the next 5 years. In keeping with our ethos of openness, we will also be doing this entirely in the open. And we want your help in devising our strategy to change transport planning forever.
Tomorrow is Day 1. We will be working on our vision and mapping the future of mobility. We will publish our vision in a blog post and on Google Docs, inviting you all to comment.
On Wednesday (Day 2), we will do some in depth exploration of the future and our users. We will publish our findings in a blog post, and summary documentation on Google Docs.
On Thursday (Day 3), we will start to devise solutions that will help us meet our end goal. We will publish these and work on them openly in Google Docs. We will then choose the ideas to work on in more detail on Day 4.
On Friday (Day 4), we will work on our plan of action to make these a reality. What capabilities we will need, what projects we will need to undertake, and over what timescale. We will publish these plans in full on a blog post, and share the documentation in Google Docs.
On Saturday - and in fact for a 3 day period - we will publish our strategy for your comments. This will be done by way of a Google Doc shared with you all, where you can write your comments.
