Dave Gardner’s “Thank God It’s Monday” 17MAY10

“Thank God It’s Monday” is to help companies thrive!

This week’s focus: business execution

Gridlock is prevalent in our world; it dominates the news. It almost seems “normal.”

Gridlock undermines progress on critical initiatives and impedes day-to-day business operations. Organizational gridlock often requires business process changes and, in some instances, new information technology.

The biggest contributor to organizational gridlock is a company’s culture which can be as toxic as the crude oil spewing from 5,000 below the surface in the Gulf of Mexico today.

[Note: Read my thoughts about this business execution failure and what needs to be done about it in my Fast Company Expert blog post.]

Businesses that thrive do not tolerate gridlock, are constantly on the lookout for gridlock, and take quick action to quash it.

Thought for the week:

The successful man is the one who finds out what is the matter with his business before his competitors do.” – Roy L. Smith
