A thank you to all of those we met in Abu Dhabi. We are providing this Journal to you as our way of thanks.

A happy beginning of the Fall to all.

Signposts and Indicators our monthly summary of important political, economic, social and technological changes that affect organizations will benefit your long-term decision-making is available. In this issue: The American Senate may depend on granite; US manufacturing picks up; the possible decline of American labor flexibility; and removing a poison to get more sunshine.

We've done things a bit different this month: Instead of showing you just articles, we've included links to our videos on strategic planning, change management, the balanced scorecard, etc. Please read below.

We have also created a periodic blog, the Impatient Strategist. Our latest entry is a primer on mergers and acquisitions. You can view it here, and also subscribe to the @OrganizedChange twitter feed.
We have also created an archive of the Journal, where you can see all previous issues. Enjoy!
We'd like to ask a favor of you. To build on the success of the Journal, could you forward this email to two or three colleagues?
We are interested in your comments and feedback. Please click here to do so.
