Is your business is broken?

It is if you accept the status quo!  

Don Clarks article is “spot on”  There is no such thing as “if it is not broken don’t fix it.”  Yes, you must prioritize your change efforts weighing safety, quality, and Return On Investment.  Also, you must have goals to strive for with an active plan.  Every day your company needs to work on continuous improvement change efforts.  Measuring performance and rewarding employees for achieving and sustaining the change efforts that are key to your success.  One company that I have been working with structure, and a gainsharing program has grown 17%, reduced there labor 9% and increased their profit by 58% over the past 6 months.

“Your thinking skills can be considered directional skills because they set the direction for your organization. They provide vision, purpose, and goal definition. These are your eyes and ears to the future, allowing you to recognize the need for change, when to make it, how to implement it, and how to manage it. You find vision by reaching for any available reason to change, grow, and improve. Just as you perform preventive maintenance on your car, you must perform preventive maintenance on your organization. Do NOT believe in the old adage, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” for the people who do, go broke! Treat every project as a change effort. Treat every job as a new learning experience.”
