The Mind of a Fox
The analogy stretches back to the ancient Greek poet, Archilochus, who said:
"The fox knows many things, the hedgehog one big thing".
Oxford philosopher, Isaiah Berlin, used this distinction to articulate two types of thinkers:
Foxes incorporate diverse sources of information and constantly update their assumptions in the face of new evidence.
Hedgehogs relate everything to one big idea.
In a rapidly changing, uncertain world, organisations need to think with the Mindofafox.
