Dave Gardner’s “Thank God It’s Monday” 05MAR12

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

This week’s focus: business execution

HP has done what a lot of companies have been doing the past 3 years: hunkered down trying to ride out the economic downturn focused primarily on reducing costs while searching for sales.

HP has paid a price for this. And, so have other companies that have adopted similar strategies.

Defining and executing a compelling strategy, addressing critical business processes and system needs, and driving innovation are key to maintaining the vitality of a corporation.

There’s no time like the present to tackle those issues you know are going to hurt your company as the economy continues to rebound. Take action to ensure you and your company thrives.

Thought for the week:
