Thanks for signing up and adding your picture. I am busy on the site welcoming members who have joined from the past few weeks as I prepare to head to India in 2 hours. I too appreciate the social element of work and crowd-sourcing. I am intrigued by organization who crowdsource strategy with staff rather than go away on an isolated retreat. Have you read the McKinsey piece: https://www.mckinseyquarterly.com/The_social_side_of_strategy_2965
I am including a link to my 50 page document on the pyramid of engagement - suggesting engagement is never more than 10 blocks away. To read or download the document click here.
Have a great 2013. All the best with all of your work in Finland and elsewhere.
