Do you know your team?

How well do you know the people you work with?

Do you know their hobbies, their education their experience?

Are you missing opportunities because there are people in your group have expertise that you don’t know about.

Missed opportunities because you don’t know your team can set you back tremendously. Take advantage of what people know.

Have a great day!

Give it time

When change happens, people tend to overreact not because it’s good or bad but rather simply because it’s different.

Be willing to give it some time in order to see if the change actually is good or bad and not just is different.

Have a great day!

Kaizen

The Japanese concept of Kaizen means continuous improvement. Too often we get content and complacent and think “it’s good enough”.

The reality is things are never good enough and we need to be continuously looking for opportunities to improve.

The thing to remember is the world is constantly changing so if you don’t improve constantly you will start to fall behind.

Have a great day!

Incremental change

I’m working with a client who is using technology that is extremely outdated. They are wanting a solution that will provide the newest technologies, the most up to date features etc. The problem is, to overhaul their entire system will take many months and while it has to be done the problem is the time to make the change.

The challenge is whether it’s worth it to fix the old system to make it workable while working on the major overhaul of the entire system.

Some would say the short term fix will more than pay for itself and others would argue that it’s throwing good money after bad.

There isn’t a right or wrong answer but I do believe this is applicable in many parts of life.

Have a great day!
