Dan Sollom | Scrambling for dollars

I don’t usually like to play in charity golf scrambles for various reasons. One, they are typically over five-plus hours long when 18 holes should be played in about three-and-a half hours. Two, they are sometimes governed by a funky, hard-to-understand handicap system, whereby a ridiculous 20-under par is required to win or at least be in the conversation.

Dan Sollom | Strategies in golf

For my day job, I work with groups and organizations helping to develop strategic plans for the short-term and long-term. During this process, we flesh out things like mission and vision statements, key strategic objectives and detailed action plans to move the needle toward success. Sounds fun, right? Right? (OK, thanks.)
