Dave Gardner’s “Thank God It’s Monday” 26SEP11

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

This week’s focus: strategy

I shared a Fast Company Expert Blog post with a client that takes a look back at the office technology available during the NASA program to put a man on the moon back during the 1960’s.

My client wondered on Twitter, “When will another president have the guts to announce a ‘man on the moon’ project and what should it be?”

I tweeted back, “The project should be to eliminate US dependence on fossil fuels by 2030…an idea bigger than putting a man on the moon.”

My client tweeted back, “…and probably with more impact on global peace ;)”

Eliminating US dependence on fossil fuels (petroleum, coal, natural gas) will improve national security, create millions of jobs, reduce our carbon footprint, and help us thrive.

Isn’t it time to tackle an innovation project like this?

Thought for the week:

“Getting change right means:

  • Bringing people together and helping them interact in ways that create meaningful engagement for new and better ways of working.
  • Tapping into a high-leverage web of experience and information so your initiative responds in real time to changing circumstances
  • Getting many, many people on board as quickly as possible, creating a fast-paced buy-in.”

– Seth Kahan, Getting Change Right
