I’m going to ask you to write something down, so reach for your pen and pad.
Here in Suffolk, I guess like your part of the world, we’re enjoying some really fantastic hot weather and the ground is suffering, becoming parched and brown.
Whilst out walking the dogs last night, I came across this plant standing vibrant green, resilient and apparently impervious to the arid soil around.
Now I’m no agriculturist so can’t give you a reason as to why it survives whilst all around wilt, but it did set me thinking about how nature had provided this species with the ability to, not only survive, but also flourish and herein my thoughts turn to my opening question.
Write down, what makes your business unique, what is its compelling value proposition and is it sustainable in your market?
More thoughts here..
How did you get on?
Have productive and thoughtful day.
It’s been nearly two years in the making, though backed by over twenty five years of experience; last month we successfully launched the “Think-Forward” Business Management Toolkit.
Designed specifically for Directors and Senior Managers to implement strategy and drive business performance improvement.
Based on the four pillars of the Business Excellence Model, Strategy, Operational Process, Learning and Development and Performance Management the “Think-Forward Programme” provides a framework for consistently driving performance initiatives throughout the business, thereby improving growth, customer satisfaction and increasing profitability.
The Programme may be used in isolation or in conjunction with any other business development initiative that the business uses.
If you would like to know more and how it may benefit your business, then call today for a no-obligation discussion.
We look forward to hearing from you.
So who would like a laugh at my expense?
On Wednesday I bought a new pair of slippers – nothing of particular interest except that they were too tight.
Quick check of the label said they were my size- “I’ll let them stretch a little”.. but alas it soon became apparent that they had been incorrectly labelled.
I mused whilst standing at the returns desk as to where in the manufacturing process the error had been introduced.
At this point I must have had brain fade because I exchanged them for the next size up-logical right?
Nope! I now flip flop around the house with a pair that are too big.
So a lesson for Carr – back to Go, past QC, do not collect £200, and remember to collect your books on SPC on your way there lol!
I guess the lesson learnt is don’t assume that you know root cause and propose a solution until you know all of the facts.
Anyone want to buy a nearly new pair of slippers – size extra-large?
Well no sooner had I posted the previous short piece mentioning the brilliant satirist John Clarke, then news reached me that he has died .
Apparently whilst out bush-walking in Victoria he died from natural causes . He was aged 68.
Thank you John for your brilliance and humour. RIP.
