As a Grenadian living abroad with much interest and concern for the level of pain and hardship facing our nation, I am taking the liberty to share my observations to the attention of all Grenadians at home and abroad; but specifically to our leaders and stakeholders in the public, private and charitable sectors.
Leaders and stakeholders, for too long, have been mostly disconnected with the issues resulting with far too little development and implementation of strategic models in the direction of growth, debt management and sustainability. Therefore, we find ourselves in massive DEBT and still without common-sense solutions; these debts are financial, physical, emotional and spiritual.
In times like these we need miracle solutions to solve our national debt with little or no private investment. Strategic models provide solutions based on stated vision, mission, goals, objectives, tasks, timelines, outcome and impact above self and differences.
The old saying, “failing to plan is planning to fail” is probably the basic lesson we ought to take from what has happened since our independence. We have seen some good, some bad and some ugly outcomes, but not enough good outcomes in nation building, management, sustainability and national pride.
