In 2009, Gary introduced the Management by Discovery Model to describe how people plan when faced with ill-defined goals.
In management, leaders often have to start work even with goals that are vague. They are more likely to achieve an acceptable outcome if they can modify the goals along the way, making discoveries rather than rigidly clinging to the initial objectives. The concept of Management by Discovery is that adaptive leaders and managers try to learn more about the goals even as they are pursuing them.
