***This post is part of a series of on how to Do Business Effectively(). R. Shawn McBride helps business Do Business Effectively().***
I had a long discussion today with one of my business partners about thinking different in business and the push and pull between standards (for an organization) and uniqueness (for individuals).
But one thing is for certain. If you want to Do Business Effectively() you have to allow space for different thinking. Too much routine means you are relying on the creativity (or lack of it) from those that set-up your procedures.
And group think – and thinking the same is only going to get you so far. What you really need is an organization that thinks differently and embraces its uniqueness.
So the challenge to you – for all of us – is how to we build organizations that allow creativity and innovation but still have a strong brand and process flow.
There will be more to say on this. Stay tuned to this blog.
And if you want something more immediate call us at McBride For Business to schedule a consulting session.
