“Thank God It’s Monday” is to help companies thrive!
This week’s focus: innovation
If your company is overly focused on error correction, you simply wait until a problem occurs, and then, you correct the problem returning you to the same standard of performance you were at before the problem occurred. All the energy and attention expended resolving problems leaves you no better off than you were before the problem occurred.
If your company is concerned about raising the standard of performance, however, you must innovate.
Companies focus entirely too much on error correction and not enough on raising the standard of performance.
A relentless focus on innovation—product, service, and business process innovation—will ensure your company thrives.
Thought for the week:
“Now, as in 1776, 1861, 1932 & 1941, America’s best days lie ahead.”
- Warren Buffet in 2011 letter to Berkshire-Hathaway shareholders
