,, Commercial matters can often be time sensitive and emotional for the people involved and decisions often need to be made in high pressure circumstances. With that being the case, it can be very easy for someone to 'win the battle but lose the war' by losing sight of their overall goals. To me, Simply Strategic means working out with my client exactly what a 'win' looks like, mapping out the variety of issues that we might face, developing a plan and making sure we execute that plan at each critical juncture to have that win.
