Never Accept the Status Quo
To assist some of our clients in various industries with their trying times, I wrote Never Accept the Status Quo. Sensible, practical and timely recommendations are made that most organizations, small to large, will find useful.
These recommendations are readily implementable. This is not reading for tomorrow. It is reading for today.
I hope you find this interesting. Please feel free to share it with your friends, colleagues and clients.
Never accept the status quo is one of the lessons we have learned from recent US and global events. According to various news reports, federal, state and local law enforcement officials missed some clues that in retrospect might have allowed them to take action before the September 11 terrorist attacks.
Going forward there is no doubt that these agencies will take a fresh and hard look at the way that they manage their operations. They, as we the people, recognize that the way they approach their jobs in the future will change significantly. They have learned to never accept the status quo.
The business world can benefit from these hard lessons recently learned. There are lots of informative clues and messages that we all receive continuously as a part of our businesses that affect how we fare with our customers, suppliers and competitors. Some of these are big picture, macro based items that apply across the board, while others are more specific and cannot be universally applied.
Assessing the messages and the information in a timely and accurate manner and taking appropriate action to make changes can make the difference between success and failure for companies, for profit and non-profit organizations and others. The business school textbooks are full of case studies supporting this.
