What's in a name:

Dellium is the location of an ancient Greek battle where a flexible battle strategy was first used.

Up until that time, 424BC, battles were fought by opposing masses of heavily-armed troops.

Here, at the Battle of Dellium (which can also be spelt as "Delium" or "Delorium"), General Pagondas, changed the structure of the army’s formation. He reconsidered how best to use his mass of heavily-armed troops. This lead to the use of cavalry, of a reserve force and of the flexible deployment of lightly-armed troops all adapted to the conditions of the battle. He also invented the flamethrower that was used in the following siege.


The historical consequences of this battle are immense. Pagondas’s strategic flexibility influenced Philip II of Macedon in his approach to battle. This in turn was passed onto his son, Alexander the Great whose greatest legacy was the expansion of Greek Civilisation. What we enjoy here in the West: democracy, architecture, mathematics, the arts, history and medicine, are all influenced by the ancient Greeks.

And so, it can be argued, that the long term consequences of that flexible thinking by Pagondas have been quite significant.

That is the same approach that I bring to your situation.

By developing the right strategy to suit your current and future situations, consistent growth opportunities for your organisation will be maximized over the long term.
