Dot Dot Dot

An organization needs people who understand marketing.

An organization needs people who understand finance.

An organization needs people who understand IT.

An organization needs people who understand HR.

An organization needs people who understand sales.

An organization needs people who understand people.

Each of these groups of people can be thought of as dots.

At the very top, an organization needs someone who can connect the dots.

If marketing and sales aren’t working together, the organization will fail.

If IT and HR aren’t working together, the organization will fail.

If any of the groups aren’t working with any of the other groups, the organization will fail (or at the very least, struggle unnecessarily)

The person at the top doesn’t have to know a LOT about finance or IT or HR or sales etc. The person at the top must know how to connect all of these groups to make them work together, as opposed to as individual units.

Those organizations who are able to keep their dots connected, will continue to succeed, those who can’t will flounder and eventually wilt away.

Have a great day!
