Often written at the outset of a new business proposal, there is little room for change or learning from experience once the venture is underway.

These principles can be used as an alternative to a traditional business plan or even alongside one allowing it to adapt when needed.

This fresh approach teaches how to be responsive to uncertainty and demonstrates that flexible development can navigate the changing world economy better than any business plan.
