And finally, since we humans prefer (and remember) stories over bland and inconvenient facts, here’s a mercifully short one that goes some way to understanding the values, vision, and purpose driving DTC.
Inadvertently, A. A. Milne depicted quite well the antithesis of DTC:
“Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but sometimes he feels that there really is another way, if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it. And then he feels that perhaps there isn’t.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
In business, as in life in general, we can all too easily emulate Edward Bear. We can do this by either not knowing how to do something properly or through habitual behaviours that seem to work well enough, believe that there’s no other way to do it. It can also happen when we don’t notice that our favourite tools and methods have been obsoleted and superseded.
Using an evidence-based approach derived from research, safe-to-fail experiments, and experience, DTC aims to help businesses succeed by avoiding the Edward Bear method.
