Organizational Inertia

Organizational InertiaKennesaw- Friends, as you know, I am a huge fan of Peter Drucker (The Age of Discontinuity) and Richard Koch (80/20 Principle). Large companies have to adapt to rapid change in our new economy both internally and externally.  If you work for a Fortune 500 company, take some time to study how you are going to contribute this year and how you can add measurable value to the bottom line.  Like a manager of mine once said, revenue and margin solves most problems.  Encourage excellence today.
