Strategic geography

‘besides keeping his men well organised and trained (a prince) must always be learning some practical geography: how the mountains slope, how the valleys open, how the plains spread out’ (Machiavelli “The Prince” – translated by George Bull – Penguin 1961)

How do you do this?

As a leader, how do you stay in touch with the hinterland that your organisation occupies?

Do you know what is over the next hill, or where that river flows?
