Studies in pursuit of strategic genius
Note from the editor

How can we achieve innovative strategic thought combined with effective strategic leadership? Such an ability might be termed strategic genius: the capacity to see at once from the tactical to the strategic, orient to a situation from a number of diverse perspectives, design narratives that transform strengths in the system, and then see all of this through to fruition despite resistent individuals and organizations. 30 pages is a guided plan for ongoing study in pursuit of this strategic genius. The concept is simple: reading 30 pages (on average) a day across a highly diverse number of academic and professional disciplines to achieve broad perspectives in order to take effective action in the world. These 30 pages equate to one book every two weeks and six books as part of a focused block of study every three months. Each block focuses on six critical texts (or more in the case of journal articles) from a certain discipline and is led by an individual with expertise in that field. Fields of study include history, philosophy, political science, sociology, sinology, cognitive psychology and neuroscience, complexity science, design theory, morality, postmodernism, poetry and more!
