This week’s focus: business execution
As I have written previously here, companies have over the past 3 years been hunkered down trying to ride out the economic downturn focused primarily on reducing costs while searching for sales.
Millions of people have lost their jobs. Yet, work remains fundamentally unchanged. Businesses haven’t retooled their processes to scale with staffing levels. What needed to happen during this period was to:
- streamline operations
- improve processes
- remove complexity
As Ross Perot once said, “This is like the weird aunt in the basement–everyone knows she’s down there but nobody wants to do anything about it!”
It’s not too late. It’s time to tackle these pesky business execution excellence issues head on. This will help you, your team and your company thrive.
Thought for the week:
