Be Your Own Worst Enemy

The Defense Department regularly employs civilians to help it identify potential risks to the nation’s security.  You could (and should) do the same for your company.  Here’s how.  Grab your team and go offsite.  Imagine you’re starting a new company to compete directly with your present business.  Get in teams and identify all of the weaknesses you could take advantage of if you were your own competitor.  Now get back together, compare results and work on defensive strategies together.  After all, if you can figure out where you’re vulnerable, so can someone else.
