This Blog is written with a clear intent in mind. It is written to cajole, nudge, prompt and make you, the Director and Senior Manager, stop and think about what is happening within your organisation.
If you survived last year you did well or perhaps as a colleague described it you were “a zombie company” existing to get from one day to the next without challenging the status quo and doing credit to the many skills and experience that got you to where you are today.
I don’t want to patronise, but last year, I saw time and time, again figures and information being presented that oscillated between doom and gloom and high aspiration, each trying to make sense of the dynamics of the economic position and I wonder did you question and give thought to the next three years and if so where did those thoughts feature in your business plan?
I also wrote last year that the business models that we have grown with are being firmly overturned and that if you don’t stop and at least consider the fundamental added value drivers of your business then change will be forced upon you, perhaps for the worse.
By way of levity I’m giving you this excellent video from a software house called Kimble. There are some very good, thought-provoking statements being made.
I hope you enjoy and as ever, if you’d like to discuss any of the topics raised then please don’t hesitate to pick up the phone.
